Brooklyn’s answer to the recession: make consumerism a party! The Brooklyn Night Bazaar is back for a festive holiday season run of shopping, food, music, booze every Friday and Saturday from Nov. 23 through Dec. 22, 6pm-midnight, at 45 N. 5th St (b/t Wythe & Kent) in Williamsburg. Featuring more than 200 of the top local makers, artists, vendors, brewers, and artisanal food purveyors, plus a curated music lineup each night, you can get all your shopping done while getting drunk and listening to a hip soundtrack in a massive warehouse. Multitasking, Brooklyn-style.
The Bazaar is free and open to the public, but of course you are encouraged to eat, drink and shop in support of local businesses while enjoying the free entertainment.
So far the lineup of musical entertainment features Kyp Malone, from TV On The Radio (11/23), Pains of Being Pure at Heart (12/14), Eternal Summers (12/15), MEN (feat. JD Samson of Le Tigre) (12/21) and a bunch more acts that are probably cool if you’re in the know about that kind of stuff and more TBA. A list of food, merch and art vendors can be found here. There’s still time to get a booth and sell your handmade-in-Brooklyn wares to seasonal spenders! Apply here.
