Montero's Bar & Grill in Brooklyn Heights was founded in 1939.

Montero's is the last longshoreman' s bar left in the area and is full of maritime memorabilia ⚓️including model ships 🚢 and even life preservers. It was opened by Joseph and Pilar Montero and is currently run by their son Pepe who although has no immediate plans to sell the bar and the entire building it is located in, there is talk of him joining six neighbors to offer all of their property together for $56 million dollars. We love this bar's decor 🚤 and its #vintage #neonsign and hope that it stays around for many more years. Photo from 2010 appears in our book "New York Nights".
