Seemingly in no-man’s land, but not really, the new spot is on Grand St down by the Metropolitan Ave Bridge near the famous Pumps strip club. (Oh, there.)
The space is like a taco hut / amusement park / construction zone mash-up. A long dimly lit bar with lawn ornament flamingos and wonky artwork is flanked by a grand skylit seating area of vintage dining sets that face a separate large room where the bands perform in front of heaps of demolition junk. I suspect they decorated the joint with finds from the Meeker Ave Flea and are still working on it. It’s crazy. I like it.
Here is a more in-depth (better) article with more (better) photos from Bushwick Daily.
Leading up to Gunfight! we watched Osekre & The Lucky Bastards, an afro-rock band, whose upbeat rhythms made for an awesome show.
