Maybe you’ve walked by Iona and thought, “Hey, there’s another normal bar.” If so, you were only sort of right. From the outside, this place looks like a generic pub - but once you’re inside, you’ll feel like you’re in a small English town where people go to bed early and wear lots of plaid. This place is dark, with brick walls and little knick-knacks lying around, and if you head out back, you’ll find an outdoor space that’s roughly the size of the bar itself. There’s ping-pong out there as well as a bunch of tables, and you can sit beneath the shade of a big tree and appreciate the fact this place isn’t as busy as most other Williamsburg bars.
