Navy Yard Cocktail Lounge located on Flushing Avenue at Washington Avenue was in business from 1907 to 2010.
Steve Frankel, who owned it since 1999, lost his lease when the building was sold to a developer. The bar originally served the tens of thousands of Brooklyn Navy Yard personnel who worked in the shipbuilding industry, but in recent years catered to the workers in the many industrial businesses and film and television studios, which rented spaces at the revitalized Navy Yard industrial park.
