Don’t expect to find any reclaimed-wood tables or cocktails served in Mason jars at this Bushwick hole-in-the-wall. Former rave promoter John Barclay opened this 1,900-square-foot club as an antidote to the rampant twee artisanalization of North Brooklyn. See, you don’t come to Bossa Nova to twist your mustache; you come here to drink and dance, though not in that unce-unce-unce megaclub kind of way. A tropically themed bar (think banana-leaf wallpaper and strategically placed pineapples) lubricates the young and festive with $6 drafts and $9 cocktails; the D.J.’s (including Lloydski from Roberta’s Tiki Disco parties) take care of the rest, pumping out techno and house-leaning jams via a stellar sound system.
