In June of 2015, the Brooklyn Night Bazaar was forced out of its warehouse space on 165 Banker St. in Greenpoint and replaced by BMW. It’s another in a long list of Brooklyn venues that have closed in the past few years, displaced by rising rents and new corporate tenants. They were able to make the most of it by opening the Riis Park Beach Bazaar as a seasonal outdoor flea market with live music and a food court.

But now, they get another shot at Greenpoint: Gothamist reports that they’ve found a new home in the Polonaise Terrace, the three-story Polish banquet hall on Greenpoint Avenue, which opens Sept. 9. Now known as just Brooklyn Bazaar, the three-story space will be larger than the original, which means more amenities, and it will be open seven days a week too. 

One major difference at the new venue is the concerts won’t be free like they used to be: The first run of concerts are ticketed events; tickets range between $8-$20. Entry to the market will still be free.

At the expansive, three-story space near the Greenpoint Avenue G stop, the Bazaar will have room to accommodate a whole slew of new programming, including live music (with a show capacity of 400), karaoke, ping-pong, mini-golf and a weekly film series put on by Nitehawk (the first movie is Polanski’s The Knife in the Water on Sept. 13. Food-wise, there will be a brand new restaurant from Joaquin Baca of Brooklyn Star, and a weekend “brunch bazaar” with different vendors.

Tickets go on sale today for opening weekend’s concerts, which include Clap Your Hands Say Yeah on Friday, September 9, and Pissed Jeans on Saturday, September 10. Here’s a list of the concerts that have been announced so far.
