168 Marcy Avenue Brooklyn, New York City, NY, New York, 11211, USA


Duff's Brooklyn is home of Metalheads, Rockers, horror friends, NYDM and other NY maniacs. The bar is run by Jimmy Duff, who once co-owned Hell's Kitchen Heavy Metal institution Bellevue. He resuscitated his horror-movie memorabilia at what he dubs Avenue E: Kent Avenue, across from the rippling East River. Drink a one-dollar PBR (until 9 p.m.) inside this former check-cashing shop, or get comfy on the patio.

The standards

For a fantastic jukebox, crazy decor, and sightseeing the cream of New York's metal scene, Duff's is it. Spin the wheel for a free beer or T-shirt, but careful you don't end up in the cage with the gimp. Though small, and without draft beer, this is a must for any metalhead in the Big Apple.

Nice but very small.

The club looks great and stylish (in a good way) - things you often don't get to see in a metal club. I was there on Thursday and there were not mor than 10 people hanging around. But we've had a great time with the, everyone is really friendly. The jukebox is great but extremly loud for such a small location. Would visit it again!

Awesome bar!

I managed to get to this bar a couple of nights on my last trip to New York, it's well worth the trip out of Manhattan, $2 on subway and around $20 back in a cab, which the bar staff very kindly called for me. Very chilled to have some beers outside with Machine Head blaring out of the jukebox, I got to chat with some of the locals too, they come from far and wide too from New Jersey and Long Island too. As a woman travelling alone I felt very comfortable here and would recommend it to anyone with a love of rock!

One of the best metal bars in the world

Although this bar is much smaller than initially expected after seeing the pics they have on their webpage, once you are inside the venue enjoying a cold ber, everything is perfect: a good jukebox, extremely friendly stuff, Jim Duff itself... absolutely great. Life can be so nice sometimes, donĀ“t you think?
