Last Friday at Brooklyn Night Bazaar, the musical lineup was headlined by Los Angeles’ prominent original funk maestro, Dâm-Funk. Dâm opened his set by playing crowd-pleasing throwback jams, ranging from the obscure to the well-loved. Supporting sets by Norwegian musician Maya Vik, Gordon Voidwell, and DJ Thanksgiving Brown all drew from the same well of 80s synth-funk worship that Dâm has made his name on over the past 20 years.
The Bazaar itself is a sprawling indoor warehouse located at 165 Banker St. in Greenpoint. This bustling spot has opened its arms to an eclectic marketplace, offering local food, crafts, art, games, music and most importantly a highlight to any weekend. The Bazaar is open Fridays and Saturdays. It supplies typical midway variety of games like skee ball and ping-pong. The music lineups stretch until the curtains close at 1 AM. With all of these attractions, BK Night Bazaar is a great option for a Friday or Saturday night out. And since it’s located blocks away from great bars in Greenpoint and Williamsburg, you can easily keep the party going after you leave.
Entry is free but their “Super Pass” is a steal at $25 – access for two by skipping the entrance line, two beer tickets, access to the VIP bathrooms, and a free game of either mini-putt or ping pong. Be sure to check out the Bad Mother Shucker raw oyster stand in the back or Arancini Bros. rice balls by the stage. Above all else, do not forget to dance.
