Union Pool is a Williamsburg staple. If you’re planning to spend time in what many people see as a bit of a Hipster Haven – Williamsburg, Brooklyn – then you have to visit Union Pool.
Located almost directly under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway (BQE, if you need to sound like a local) it’s great for a late-night hang out or an afternoon in the sunshine. Indoors there’s a bar and booths, but outside is an open beer garden with wide benches and – our favourite part – a taco truck.
The El Diablo Taco Truck is one thing, and coupled with cheap drinks, fun music and a really good vibe – there’s not a lot to complain about.
The owners only request? Please don’t be stupid.
Union Pool is at 484 Union Ave, Brooklyn.
