My new favorite dive that I desperately want to visit but am currently too afraid to enter is the Nitecaps, along Coney Island Avenue in Midwood. Fortress-like stucco facade. Weird Olde England font on "Nitecaps" and "Food" and "Spirits." Two small windows. It closes at 4 AM—unusual for this nabe—and is reportedly the only thing to do in the area if you're a night owl. It is also a "darts pub," and the Brooklyn Dart League plays here. I assume it's called Nightcaps because nobody who goes there has just one.
