Park Slope’s Queer nightlife staple Ginger’s Bar has officially received a sister bar dubbed Mary’s.
The new bar isn’t technically be new, rather it’s a rebranding of One Stop Beer Shop, which recently closed after being open for 12 years, reports Greenpointers.
“We want to thank our local community for your support and patronage through these ever changing times. It is because of you that we had so much success in the 12 long years of business,” they wrote on their since-deleted Instagram.
As the new sister restaurant to Ginger’s Bar, Brooklyn’s last remaining lesbian bar, Mary’s, described as a “warm queer Irish pub,” offers beer, cider, cocktails, and mocktails in a relaxed, inclusive indoor and outdoor environment, predominantly catering to the LGBTQ+ community.
“With Mary’s, we hope to create a safe space for queer people to gather and have fun. Our aim is to share and spread the spirit of Ginger’s Bar,” said co-owner Brendan Donohoe.
Mary’s comes as a collaboration between Donohoe and One Stop’s previous operator. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Donohoe has longed for a queer pub that exists to develop connections between new and old friends–so he set out to create one himself!
Mary’s just recently opened in the East Williamsburg/Greenpoint area. They open at 5 p.m. on Monday and Friday and at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
