If you walk past the corner of Myrtle and Clinton Avenues today in Clinton Hill, you’ll find the popular bar and restaurant Putnam’s. The pub sits in a beautifully restored building, with apartments on the upper-floors. Sixteen years ago, the building was in a very different state, as this 1999 photo shows. The building’s only tenant was the corner grocery while the upper-floors sat empty.
Putnam’s, which opened in 2011, is gearing up for their annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration. Their two-day celebration will include FREE oysters, live music, Irish dancing, and plenty of traditional Irish dishes. Click here to check out all of the details.
