Intern Elena on the back deck.
The Commodore is a great Tuesday, Wednesday, or Sunday bar because it's a bit more well suited for a laid back night. The back deck is covered with a trellis and vines, and the built in benches along the wall with plastic tables and chairs gives it a dive-y but nice atmosphere. You don't need to wait to be seated, and you can pull up chairs to fit in your friends as they come. Commodore is known for their pina coladas, but what's underrated are their frozen mojitos. Also, they have one of the best fried chicken sandwiches I've ever had, and their nachos are SO GOOD. Definitely worth checking out.
Note, they don't have a website, but their address is :
366 Metropolitan Ave, New York, NY 11211
