Magick City

Brooklyn Whiskers to Reopen on Box Street in 2020

The future home of Brooklyn Whiskers at Magick City (37 Box St) in Greenpoint

The vegan cafe Brooklyn Whiskers will move to a new Greenpoint location on Box Street in 2020, the business announced the same week that their 1008 Manhattan Ave. space was vacated, following “a debilitating cycle of production and staffing.”

Brooklyn Whiskers (1008 Manhattan Ave.)

Compared to the tiny former storefront on Manhattan Ave, much more space, an increased number of tables, and outdoor seating are being promised at the new Brooklyn Whiskers 33 Box St. location, which is part of the community arts space Magick City

Brooklyn Whiskers likened the new space to “a living room and commercial kitchen for artists” and the greater community in a post on social media:

The silver lining! We’ll be making some magick on Box Street in 2020 . @magickcity is the kind of tucked away gem that reminds you why we ❤️ new york . It’s a living room and commercial kitchen for artists, artisans, neighbors and friends . lovers or strangers, sisters and brothers . It’s a very special place and with some work will be our new #greenpoint home.

While no date is set, an early 2020 opening is in the works, and in the meantime, Brooklyn Whiskers is directing its loyal customers to seek out their signature baked goods at Le Labo Fragrances (120 N 6th St) in Williamsburg.
