Located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The bar is the brainchild of Chef Ross Greenberg,a Prospect Heights resident. He then asked Matthew Pozzi who is a Park Slope native to join him in this venture a foodie and footie fanatic a like.
Soccer has always been a big part of New York City. The beautiful game is played amongst every culture and in every neighborhood. The Big Apple is also the home of onetime soccer ambassadors the New York Cosmos. Even Brooklyn-raised sports caster Howard Cossell was quoted in 1977 as saying, "Soccer will be the biggest big league of all." With the advent of satellite television and the slow "flattening" of the globe's culture it's no surprise that New York Native Ross Greenberg is bringing his vision of soccer culture, food and wine to the borough that is home to the love of the beautiful game.
Prospect Heights, a small neighborhood between Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene and Crown Heights in close proximity to Prospect Park. A hotbed of soccer amongst young and old alike. Team matches and pick-up games take place at the nearby Parade Grounds, Brooklyn Tech and Fort Greene Park. Vanderbilt Avenue with several quaint eateries and bars and twenty-something population is the perfect setting for this groundbreaking venue.
