Not been over for ages and over in 3 weeks, Know about Cafe Balearica and Two Doors Down. Is there anywhere else for a night out with decent music and relaxed vibe?
The Good Room in BKLN has a nice restaurant adjacent to the club with nice music. V relaxed vibe there. Think it’s vegan or vegetarian but the food’s really good.
I’ll ask my buddy Bruce Tantum, sometime Low Life DJ, if he has any ideas, he lives in the East Village.
Bill, I think you were referring to the resto/bar/listening room attached to Public Records, correct? Tasty vegan food, good drinks, brand-name DJs from NYC and beyond - a bit pricey but if you’re looking for something a bit more upscale, it’s a good option
On the other end of the spectrum, there’s Good Bar, which has the same owner as Good Room - lots of local spinners spinning more kind of back-to-mine sets, fairly cheap bar food - it’s kind of as close an equivalent we have to the Gun over here
And there’s Eavesdrop - kind of upscale, gets people like Justin Strauss and Ivan Berko on a regular basis, food and drinks are quite good. Like Good Room (and Good Bar), it’s in Greenpoint
Actually yes I’m an idiot and got the two muddled up. Thanks for clearing up, old bean.
Cheers Bill and Bruce x
Funnily enough I stumbled upon Good Bar on a very hot afternoon last Saturday - they had great music playing on the speakers in the outdoor bit (no djs playing at that point), can imagine it is a top place in the evenings.
