East Village establishment, Lit Lounge, recently celebrated its 12th anniversary with Jonathan Toubin spinning the decks and a live set by The Melvins.
As reported by Bedford and Bowery, they are about to open a second location at the McKibbin Lofts in Bushwick, in a bid to earn the title of “most-hipsters-per-square-foot”.
The venue will feature two levels, featuring a small restaurant/cafe upstairs called Currant Cafe which is due to open in March. You’ve got to wait a little longer for the downstairs club to open in September, though there are currently no plans for live music, but will offer DJs and regular parties.
Foss describes a “very rustic” design consisting of old barn wood, concrete, rusted steel, old leather and ironwork. The downstairs club space will have black-painted concrete walls and floors, with half of the room dedicated to a mural that will change sporadically. Naturally, there will be a platform for gogo dancers.
