Ponyboy, a neighborhood bar that opened in September in Greenpoint, has various identities and can cater to several different crowds.

The bar, which occupies the space of the former Manhattan Inn, “flutters from cocktail bar to discotheque to music hall to underground sushi society by zephyr-like whim,” according to The New York Times.

People drink, tell stories and dance to the beat of classic soul, disco and funk. At times, there are live performances by local funk bands.

All in all, “there’s not too many places that party this hard until 2 a.m.,” James Halpern, one of the owners, told the Times.

Ponyboy is located at 632 Manhattan Ave., on what the Times calls a busy stretch characterized by dollar stores and laundromats.
