179 Smith St. Brooklyn, NY 11201 (718)852-8086
Camp brings Brooklyn urbanites a little taste of the country. Relive summer memories while making your own smores, escape from the cold by cozying up to our fireplace, bag a deer on Big Buck Hunter, and grab some friends for a classic board game competition. All while listening to hand-picked indie rock. Welcome to Camp.
In Short - A mounted deer head, log cabin-like walls and a working fireplace add to the woodsy appeal of this summer camp-inspired lounge. The clientele- a late 20s to early 30s set- is long past their sleep-away days, but a basket of nostalgic board games, a weekend DJ, and shareable snacks (like s'mores) encourage patrons to flirt and play. House cocktails include the Dirty Girl Scout with vodka, Bailey's, Kahlua, and creme de menthe.

A recent addition to Boerum Hill's bar scene, Camp brings a laid-back vibe to upper Smith St. Log cabin walls, tree trunk stoles, and common room activities (including a few favorite board games) recall the days of summer camp. The bar also offers select snacks; be sure to try their s'mores while sitting by the cozy fireplace. Amiable servers and bartenders keep the feel-good vibe going well into the night.

Cynics might find the log-cabin interior,
mounted deer heads, idle kayak and latrine-pail lighting fixtures too corny by half but after settling into an overstuffed armchair by the wood-burning fireplace or catching a whiff of the s'mores cooking at the butcher-block tables, they're apt to grab a game of Operation or Jenga and - with the help of a creamy vanilla martini topped by a hot marshmallow - let any snide condescension go... Low-key rock tunes are the source for any singalongs here."
