Bar & Restaurant
One block away from the Brooklyn favorite Dough Doughnuts and a short walk from Pratt Institute, Clifton Place is in the middle of some of the best Bed-Stuy nightlife. This loft event space for rent has plenty of original details including exposed beams and skylights for plenty of natural light.
This area of Bed-Stuy tends to be on the younger side, with college students, artists, and young professionals choosing to live here because of cheaper rents. Down the road, Mekelburg’s is a popular spot for food, craft beer and groceries, and Speedy Romeo serves some of the best pizza in the neighborhood. A few doors down, Chilo’s is a popular late-night hangout spot with a food truck in the backyard selling tacos.
This block of Clifton Place is mostly residential. Right around the corner on Bedford Avenue are a number of cafes and restaurants including Stonefruit Espresso and the upscale gastropub, Black Swan.
