Swell Dive


Neighborhood spotlights are a local recommendation with some quick info for must-try spots in our area. Where do you get your tacos in Brooklyn? Let us know in the comments.


Swell Dive has become a fast favorite - with their delicious tacos, fun cocktails, and sweet happy hour beer deals. It’s a small space with cool built-in booths, a handful or two of bar stools, and a cozy & colorful backyard. Surf videos projected on the wall, and the kayak hanging in the back add to the surf-shack vibe.

Come early to snag yourself a seat inside & take advantage of those happy hour deals. You should be prepared to wait on busy nights for your Filipino meets Tex-Mex tacos… but trust me, they’re worth the wait! In the meantime, sip your drink and grab a tabletop game from the back shelf to pass the time with friends. Don’t forget to try the hurricane fries!


Recommendations: Any and all tacos - we like the pork sisig and the charred beef tacos & of course hurricane fries (a spiralized potato with the most awesome cheesy toppings).

Cost: Tacos cost around $4.75; cocktails are $10, a glass of wine is $9-$12 and beer is usually around $6/$7. Go during Happy Hour daily from 5p - 8p for $6 Narrangansett + Shot, or $8 for any taco + beer.

Where: 1013 Bedford Ave (between Lafayette Ave and Clifton Pl), Brooklyn - walk from Our Place in 1 minute or less!
