If you like rock, punk, alt, and goth culture you'll love this bar. The beer selection on tap is surprisingly large, and you'll get served in some quirky goblets. Makes a good spot for photo opportunities too, with a whole lot of band posters on the walls and a stylish interior. It's pretty dimly lit inside, but that's just part of the ambiance. Also has some games like pinball, and table hockey. Worth adding to a bar hopping roster if you're with a crowd who likes the scene it fits in.
Rocka Rolla is a local Dive Bar in Williamsburg that has some really good music (classic rock) and some dope decor. Unlike other dive bars you may find in NYC, it doesn’t have smelly bathrooms. it’s a fun place to come with a group. Hang out in a booth and drink a beer in a giant goblet.
Rocka Rolla also serves beer in some really cool Schooner glasses — giant 18 oz goblets for just $3. Can’t beat that deal anywhere . You can fill one to the brim with Budweiser. Or opt for a 16 oz. can of Tecate for only $5. They're also pouring a great selection of craft beers
The Frozen Coffee Drink And Outdoor primo is the bonus for me!
I showed up at this place at 1:50am. I was previously at a few bars, and had a few drinks. I was somewhat drunk when I arrived, but far from belligerent or excessive in any way. Maybe I stumbled or something but walking in, but the bouncer stopped me before showing ID to inform me that I wasn’t going to be allowed in. His reasoning seemed to be that I was already drunk. Well, I don’t know much about the laws, but arriving at a bar at 2am almost ensures that you are going to be at least a little drunk.
In any case, I wasn’t allowed in. I’ve been to this bar before, and they have a fun banana drink. They have a good coffee drink. But you don’t allow slightly drunk people in at 2am on a Friday? I can’t imagine why. Maybe they think they’re really special or something, not sure. But they aren’t. It’s just a bar, and not allowing slightly drunk people into a bar at 2am gives you a one star rating. I’m sure it’s not the bouncers fault, even though he wasn’t exactly nice. It’s not like people at the bar aren’t drunk. They just had a problem with me for some reason, which I’m going to take offense to because I don’t think there was any reason to not allow me to enter. It was really stupid and whatever stupid policy that was governing that decision should be revised. This is my friends favorite bar, but I can’t support it if it’s going to not allow me in after a few drinks. Maybe I stumbled? You tell me
Maurice in an Angel! The drinks are generous and priced well. Awesome happy hour.
No frills, just a great bar. Don't come in to take pictures and "check-in", engage and be apart of this dying breed of a dive bar. The alcohols are cold and cheap, they serve the champagne of beers in a goblet, the decor is grunge and dressed in an era long since admired. The music is punk and old hard hitting rock and roll. Go for the experience, stay for libations and most importantly the people.
