The Brooklyn Night Bazaar, a night of fun, booze, food and straight up hipness
Ah yes, the return of the Brooklyn Night Bazaar. And what successful start it has this first weekend of November.
And it deserves it. This huge hall has been turned into one giant hotspot. Awesome!
When entering the Brooklyn Night Bazaar located at an industrial area the first thing that catches my eye is the black-light-mini golf course. On the other side you can play your game of ping pong in a pretty arty hall with some house music as a sweet soft background tune… I Like! Well, not the ping pong thing actually…
Damn can’t help it, wanna buy a lot of things here… And everything is so well-priced. From the crafted goods to the food and drinks. Let’s start with a Braised Chicken Sandwich then. Gooood, it’s good. And shall I finally get that Lobster Roll from the Lobster Joint now?
We love the tattoo guys from Tattoo Elite International with their awesome prints and we decide to buy a couple of them. Also the girls from Rachel Bennett with their knit wear are selling nice stuff. A bright orange knitted headband! Kinda funky. And for 10 bucks it’s mine now. Liss West from Hashtag the Planet is selling funny postcards with inspiring words on them. You’ll also find a lot of beautiful jewelry. Check out the stuff from Ayaka Hara. She actually puts really tiny flowers in necklaces.
You can start off your weekend pretty well here. Check out the calendar on the website to see if there are shows you don’t want to miss. Tonight Frankie Rose is playing. Reminds me of Friendly Fires (the lover is a fan)… Not really my kind of music, but to be honest it is quite ok…
It’s kind of hot inside so make sure you don’t put on too much of your hipster clothes.
The Brooklyn Night Bazaar will be open year round each Friday and Saturday.
After the bazaar just go to Greenpoint (well at this point you are actually already in Greenpoint) or Williamsburg. Two pretty cool neighborhoods in Brooklyn with some pretty cool bars.
