The Wrong Number Cocktail Lounge In Gravesend, Brooklyn

The Wrong Number Cocktail Lounge In Gravesend, Brooklyn was in business for over 35 years before it closed in 2009. We loved its unique name and interesting ‪#‎signage‬ with its multi-colored jumbled letters spelling out "Wrong Number" and the ‪#‎script‬ letters of "Cocktail Lounge". This was a true neighborhood dive bar and sadly there are not that many more in existence as gentrification pushes them out.

  5. Drive them out? when someone gets an offer on something that's worth more than what it is, the person will sell out nobody asked anyone to move away from Brooklyn that's ones choice.
