Opening in the next two months: The Black Horse Pub, 568 5th Avenue, South Slope
In his 13 years in the Park Slope area, Brian McNally had never found a local bar that was entirely to his liking. So when the right space opened up, McNally, a Brit, went and built exactly the kind of bar he felt the neighborhood was missing: a contemporary British pub.
Nat Osborn, take note:
Bar extras: Come next summer, it’s all soccer, all the time, as the pub will serve as an official bar of the 2010 World Cup. Fans won’t have to wait that long to catch a game, though: On weekends, the bar will open early to show football matches, offering patrons full English breakfasts — eggs, beans, toast, sausage, and grilled tomatoes — while they watch.
