After snapping the photo below, I looked into the origins and found the following tidbit on gowanuslounge.com:

It used to be a notorious Italian mob hangout, now it’s just studios. The owner, she still pays a $50 yearly “illuminated sign” tax for having the old fixture up… One side says cocktail lounge, the other side says Italian Cuisine. The mob in Brookyn? Hanging out in Carroll Gardens and Gowanus? Dear God, say it ain’t so. Repeat after us: There is no mafia. There is no mafia. There is no mafia. But, for those who believe there is, and have dined at Red Bamboo in Fort Greene…that was another “notorious” mob hangout back in the day. Also, we think that sign should be landmarked. It has always brought us joy.
