And now for something completely different: Sunshine Laundromat! Tucked away off the beaten path in Brooklyn, this dive bar brings pinball nostalgia to the forefront as the main attraction. The laid back bar doesn’t serve liquor but has many craft beers, ciders, and a frosé on tap. Unfortunately when we went the washer door you enter through was broken, but you did walk through a functioning laundromat and through a washer door to get in, very gimmicky, very fun! Be ready to lose a lot of money playing the pinball machines though, it’s addicting and you want to just hang out for hours.
