Play the Market

The Brooklyn Night Bazaar just got a brand-new home


You remember it well. Five winter weekends of food, art, bands, and booze.
And then it disappeared, leaving no trace behind. Was it a dream?
Nope. The Brooklyn Night Bazaar — modeled after the raucous night markets of Asia — was never meant to last. But now it's found a permanent 24,000-square-foot home in Greenpoint, where it'll thrum each and every weekend.
This Friday, the Bazaar kicks open its doors with a Spank Rock show. Flanking that are installations by Nuit Blanche and Brazilian graffiti artist Silks.
Nosh on Morris Grilled Cheese and Daniel Delaney's Briskettown meats, as well as wares from a dozen other food stalls. Then lounge in the beer garden and play ping-pong in a giant walk-in freezer.
And since it's a bazaar, there will be vendors. 
Pick up old-school streetwear at Top Shelf Vintage (Riff Raff's a fan, apparently) or minimalist military jackets from Bushwick's Cadet. Hell, you can even score one-of-a-kind audio equipment from Well Rounded Sound.
Your winter weekends just got a whole lot warmer.
