Crown Inn often has a really great selection of interesting beers and wine with mostly reasonable cocktail prices. They have a sizeable backyard for the nicer months. The staff is great - really warm and inviting. The layout, space planning and design are awful. This bar gets packed - and it is most every weekend. When you get even a slight crowd in Crown Inn the front and back of the bar are basically inaccessible, one from the other. The restrooms, majority of the bar frontage and seating are all located exactly where the bottle neck occurs. So you can never get a drink, you're constantly sidling people and apologizing for stepping on their toes. The only place worse on Franklin, in terms of space planning, is Chavela's down the block. Don't get me wrong, I like Crown and I'll go back. And it's great they are doing well for themselves with how packed they are. But, hot damn, do they need to move some things around to make the place habitable. Bottom line, if you don't like awkwardly packed bars, avoid Crown Thursday through Saturday. Oh and they used to have a cool sandwich pop-up in the back. That was cool. Bummer it's gone.

Since moving to the area this has been my local. The entire staff is solid. Very personable, down to earth, and willing to have a convo. Can make some good craft cocktails, and is always attentive even during the rush. They don't put up with BS, which as a regular I like. It's not a party bar, more - a good bar to chat with your mates and enjoy good company surrounding you.

Great bartenders and great vibe. Root beer dark and stormy is delicious. The bartender was very engaging. My drink was a bit too sweet for my taste, and the bartender fixed it without a problem. The place has tables all along, but a lot of people stand at the bar. When I went, there was only one bathroom. I don't know if there's another that was out of service, but the line was long. Cavernous vibe. Good music. Nice crowd. Cool bartenders. That was fun, let's go again!

I recently took a date to the Crown Inn after passing it every time I walked home from the Franklin 4 subway stop. The weather was unnaturally warm so I discovered that they also have a back patio which is large enough to fit several parties without sitting on top of one another. The interior has perfect what I like to tern as "date lighting" - light enough to see your beer and their highlights and dark enough to hide all your fidgets and their facial flaws. And if you start making out in the corner, you wont stick out under the usual bar inspection-type lighting. The bar itself is long and staked with great craft beers - but be careful of some of the locals on tap, they can be pretty pricey, and served in a wine like tasting glass, which as a beer drinker, made me feel too ladylike and little uncomf. But hey, to each their own. All the bartenders are wonderful, tatted, and usually bearded and make for wonderful conversation on any night of the week. Eric is the coolest so say hit to him and ask him how his band is doing while youre there. Easy one of my favorite Crown Heights staple bars.

A very solid establishment with a good beer list. Came here late night during the blizzard of 2016 (it was one of the only places open) and there was a pretty decent crowd.

Great place to meet a friend or two if you are in the area for a drink. Well made Cocktails and a full to bursting binder of food menus so you can order in. Not as great for large groups since the seating tends to be in twos and threes. Grat Happy Hour.
