Bizarre Bazaar

After a wild pop-up run in Williamsburg last year, the Brooklyn Night Bazaar and its attendant neon tomfoolery are back in a permanent location every Friday and Saturday. And it’s a helluva date night. Here’s how you do it.

Grab a Bite

The Bazaar’s neon-lit food court features a rotating cast of grub vendors – you’re looking for three things:

1. A truffle butter and caramelized shallot grilled cheese from Morris Grilled Cheese (for her).

2. The best damn brisket sandwich in NYC (it’s called a “Deckle”) from meat masters Delaney BBQ (for you).

3. A pumpkin pie soft-serve with cinnamon and nutmeg from Ample Hills Creamery (to split).

And a couple of cold beers from the roving cooler man, naturally.

Do Some Shopping

You’re going to be enamored of the handsome woody hi-fi systems of Well Rounded Sound, the jaw-dropping handcrafted furniture of Brooklyn-based roguebuilt, and the occasionally NSFW photography of Victor Spinelli. She’s got enough clothing and jewelry options to last all winter. Everybody wins.

Commence Carousing

In addition to graffiti ping pong and a black-lit mini golf course, the Bazaar boasts live music every weekend. Three acts you should not miss:

Fri, November 15thTragedy, the “all metal tribute to the Bee Gees,” assisted by Guns N’ Hoses, AKA five gorgeous girls covering GNR. This will rock.

Sat, November 30th – Relaxed indie hip-hop from Kool & Kass (watch them feed chickens and tote machine guns).

Fri, December 20th – The melodic shoegaze of our new favorite band, Sisu – like My Bloody Valentine, if My Bloody Valentine had an attractive Asian frontwoman who sounded like Kim Deal (behold their percussive, weirdly waterlogged video).
