Bar & Restaurant
Brooklyn has been at the forefront of world fashion and culture for the past two decades. Think: music like MGMT, farm-to- table restaurants, and trends like mustaches and man buns. (OK--maybe don’t think about man buns too much.) More and more families and young professionals are moving here, but that doesn’t mean that the creative edge is going anywhere. In East Williamsburg/Bushwick is a brick garage building which holds an event space where creativity can be put on full display. As a former lighting company, the warehouse is undoubtedly industrial with super high corrugated metal ceilings, concrete floors, and functional garage door. But, it’s also welcoming thanks to its well-lit entrance which opens to the proper event space where there's an L-shaped elevated platform with lighting features that change color. There’s also a small loft that overlooks this space. While the area might not have the shoulder-to- shoulder vibe of Bedford Avenue, this stretch of Metropolitan still gets plenty of foot traffic from the neighborhood locals who just happen to be part of the area’s burgeoning creative class. And with the L train a few blocks away, it’s easy to get to.
