Brooklyn Bazaar, you have restored my faith in night life.  I’ve never been so impressed with a “flea market”.

First off, it’s free!  Second, the space is large and open, you don’t feel claustrophobic.  When you enter, you’re not immediately forced into any particular direction like cattle, your embraced with a nice open space to meet your friend(s) and then decide where to go (the bar?  shop? music?)  The two ATM’s are right at the front and you should stop if you don’t have cash for the bar or food vendors (most of the other vendors take cards).

The event is designed to emulate an Asian market/bazaar but, I’ve never been to Asia so, OK.  Every night they have live bands performing in the back section/food court area where it’s dark except for blue lighting from above, which is actually appreciated when you walk into a sea of people sitting at cafeteria tables (no one likes to be the asshole with no where to sit while everyone stares at you holding your fattening grilled cheese sandwich and beer…that was me, shut up).

In front of the stage there’s a sufficient-sized dance floor where, impressively, people were rocking out to the metal cover band playing…actually people went ape-shit for Tragedy.

IMG_6990Although the bathrooms are port-o-shits, they are disguised behind white walls with blue font that look like a sector in a space craft.  Out back there is a bar, tables and benches along a long white brick muraled-wall, not as exciting as the inside but I guess smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em.

As for the vendors I saw quirky inventions,  jewelry, vintage, scarves, home-made apothecaries, art and succulents (in my opinion, this is the BEST way to Xmas shop, by buying unique and local).

All these things added up = an amazing and affordable night out with friends in Brooklyn.  My friends left early but, I stayed on and enjoyed myself.
