Where can hipsters combine art and boozing even when the P.S.1 summer season is over? They need look no further than their own backyard thanks to Supreme Trading, a 7500 square-foot salon/bar with multiple rooms for live bands, DJs, even an art gallery. Exposed brick walls frame the main bar area, and suspended light fixtures serve as artful accents to the hangar-like open space. The crowd, which sports the latest in so-not-trendy-it's-trendy attire (goodbye ironic trucker hats, hello skinny ties!), guzzle down Stella and dance to the latest in indie, nu wave, and post punk rock. Several banquettes are off to the side, and for a little more privacy, a second level offers an intimate lounge complete with a pool table and benches overlooking the dance floor. If you're into indie rock but not the scene's in-your-face attitude, this party is definitely worth the trip on the L train.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
