Turkey’s Nest Tavern (The Defenders)

When you’re checking out a location in Brooklyn for Daredevil, why not stop by the bar from The Defenders in Brooklyn? Surprisingly, most of the Marvel Netflix shows are shot in the Brooklyn area, probably because they don’t want to deal with all the tourists actually in Hell’s Kitchen.

That being said, there are also plenty of bars you can frequent in order to fulfill your Marvel destiny. Whether it is Luke Cage’s bar from Jessica Jones or this bar, there are plenty of places to get your drink on like the Defender you long to be.

Maybe it’s because Jessica Jones continually doesn’t care and wants a drink, but it is hilarious that, while the MCU has many locations to go to, it’s the Marvel Netflix shows that provide us with countless bars to go to. Thank you, Jessica Jones.

This bar specifically can be found on Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn. This means you can explore Williamsburg and get your Marvel on while also living among the hipsters! It’s a true win-win for us all.

What you can do:

  • Get a drink, of course. it’s a bar!
  • The surrounding area is the ideal hipster place to be. It’s Williamsburg and there are tons of stores and restaurants around that area that are worth your time!
  • If you head toward the water, you can see a beautiful glimpse of New York City!

Location: 94 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY

How to get there: The Bedford Avenue L stop is your best bet for getting here. It’s only a few blocks away from the bar.

Cost: Varies. Yelp reviews say drinks are cheap, and a “styrofoam bucket of beer” could only run you $4.
