They’ve curated a wonderful line up of musical acts for the monthly series, so stop by and get your gear game on!
Off the next two weeks to track vox for something new (metal!) and wedding duty (not metal!), so sip this one slow. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading the way this week is Portent (Gilead Media), the cauterizing new full-length from middle west black metal collective False. Comprised of four hypercoaster epics, Portent is Six Flags for […]
It’s that time of year when we celebrate Williamsburg’s Giglio Festival — the ONLY thing that has not changed in the neighborhood in the past decade. The festivities start on Thursday July 10 with three lifts scheduled beginning on Sunday. Wednesday July 10th, Opening Night Mass | 7pm Thursday, July 11th Kids Giglio | 6:30pm […]
Apollonia opened this week in East Williamsburg. We love Walter Foods so we have high hopes for this one. You can check out their menu here. Apollonia is a new East Williamsburg cafe by day and restaurant by night from Danny Minch and Dylan Dodd, the duo known for operating Brooklyn neighborhood restaurants Walter Foods […]
MADRE opened last week at the Franklin Guesthouse hotel in Greenpoint. It’s replaces BarGlory — a small plates joint we loved, operated by by an outside team — with an internally run operation: The cozy new-American restaurant, located at 214 Franklin St., will feature a wide ranging seasonal menu that may change from week to week, […]
A new spot called Montesacro Pinseria Romana is now open in Williamsburg at 432 Union Avenue, very close to the Lorimer L stop. The Italian joint will focus on Roman-style flatbreads, called pinsas, but will also serve cheese, meats, and some staple entrees like pork chops and fresh pastas. Currently, they’re only open for dinner, […]
Just in time for summer, The Backyard and Summerly are now open at The Hoxton hotel in Williamsburg. In addition to Klein’s, which opened last year, The Hoxton now houses three spots that are ideal for outdoor drinks and dining. Of the three, Summerly is our favorite. This spacious rooftop bar opened last week and it […]
When the weather gets warm, finding a bar in Manhattan where you can drink outside is next to impossible. The few places that are suitable for outside libations are always too crowded. Thankfully, North Brooklyn has you covered. From Freehold’s grassy courtyard in South Williamsburg, to the impressive skyline vistas at Greenpoint’s Brooklyn Barge Bar, North […]
Drinking and dancing go hand-in-hand, right? Not necessarily. While most nightclubs in Williamsburg will still be shelling out mixed drinks at highway robbery-inspired rates of $15+ next week, there’s one spot that’s switching things up. On Thursday, June 20th a beverage company called Kin Euphorics will throw a free event at Gran Torino with a novel concept […]
Summer is here and the rot has officially set in. So what better way to kick back and relax than with a blast hot, stale crypt air to the face. Ahh, what a beautiful world we live in.
One of Williamsburg’s last remaining great bars is closing. After losing The Abbey, Rosemary’s Greenpoint Tavern, as well as nearby Enid’s and Matchless, this one is really going to hurt. Mugs has been in the neighborhood for over 25 years and is one of the first places you could go to find a wide selection […]
Lots of must-hears this week, so let’s get to the business of hearing them. Onward, downward, whatever. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading us off this week is Baroness, one of the few late-2000s sludge acts, along with Mastodon, still carrying the torch aloft. But a long time (and a lot of miles) have passed since the […]
