What a good day it is when we get to announce that one of our favorite local venues has not closed, has not downsized, has not moved to Jersey but has reopened in the same neighborhood but in a larger location! Gowanus’ Littlefield – home of the Punderdome, the best in drinking-themed shows and screenings, and tons of other great events which keep us smiling and laughing despite it all – has moved to a bigger, better location literally around the corner from their old Degraw St. spot.
The new venue, at 635 Sackett St., will open tomorrow with inaugural show “What Cheer Brigade” featuring Raya Brass Band and DJ Joro Boro for $10 at 9pm. There will also be a new bar menu including new cocktails.
The space, a former printing warehouse, sports a 4,000 square foot outdoor lot and new adjoining sister bar and restaurant, Parklife.
The move was in part funded by a Kickstarter which raised more than $30,000 – significantly surpassing the $26,000 goal. For those of you who were kind enough to donate, you can now reap those sweet rewards. The rest of you will have to earn Jo Firestone’s love through other means, as the time to buy it with a $10 pledge has passed.
The old Littlefield is currently up for rent and will hopefully become something a fraction as wonderful as what it was.
