"GRAND OPENING! Bad Old Days Bar in Ridgewood!"

The Bad Old Days bar is finally open in Ridgewood! Yay!! It opened last Saturday to a ton of locals. The owners Rina and Sonja were bartenders for over a decade around the area including Queens Tavern on Fresh Pond Road. Opening a bar has been a longtime goal for both of them. Rina is from upstate New York and Sonja is from the Mid-West.

This place is definitely fun, cozy, and deserves to be in this neighborhood. I hope you will welcome them here as much as I did. Their hard work has definitely paid off. -Read More...
