Just as the original East Village Life Cafe was a haven for that neighborhood’s early gentrifiers, Brooklyn’s Life Cafe 983 caters to the new crop of young artists skulking about the otherwise industrial neighborhood of Bushwick. Part café, part local bar, Life is an oasis on dismal Flushing Avenue that offers hearty, healthful meals that fit the budgets of the local creative set. The bar stays open until 2am most nights, serving light bar snacks until midnight. Late night happy hour every night from 11pm to 1am. The weekly movie night and the rotating display of Brooklyn artists on the deep red walls provide atmosphere without the straining self-consciousness of other hipster hangouts.
