|Crime and Punishment with Kate Berlant|
Records. Coffee. Beer. Three things that have brought more people together than Democrats and Republicans combined. Thanks to the owners of the East Village’s The Library and Williamsburg’s Bruar Falls, all can be found in one cheery, two-floor space on the Ludlow strip. The bright orange, faux-wood-paneled upstairs pastry café recalls Amsterdam minus the weed. But who needs to be high to appreciate banana cream pie, named after the Velvet Underground? A mint-chip colored stairway leads down to a musty, dark lair with a full-service bar and a large church pew, pleather cubes and a row of old theater chairs for seating. A small stage hosts occasional spoken word performances, film screenings and various garage, punk, metal and art-rock bands most nights, followed by DJs spinning indie, hardcore and new wave (among other genres).Bar Hours
The bar starts serving daily at 5pm.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
