One of NYC's best things to do outside is back for its third year as of today. Nowadays, the 16,000 sqft all outdoor Ridgewood space is part massive outdoor bar, part Smorgasborg-style food market, part dance party. With lots of places to lounge, play games, hang out with friends, it is the exact remedy for all those nights spent holed up in tiny bars in the winter.
In addition to the return of the much-loved Mister Sunday series, the space is also welcoming some exciting new partnerships this season. Among these, experimental venue Le Poisson Rouge will be producing a weekly outdoor live music series. On Friday and Saturday from 8pm-2am vinyl "selectors" will be showcasing their favorite albums, so you can discover obscure music gems as you enjoy a brew with friends.
Food and drink-wise, the Nowadays food truck will now be run by Purslane – the catering company run by our partner Henry Rich, also of Metta, Rucola, June, and Fitzcarraldos. Expected later in the season are cookouts from East Williamsburg BBQ joint Arrogant Swine.
Film buffs need not be excluded from the fun either, as there will be a weekly film series in collaboration with independent documentary center Maysles Cinema, starting June 7th.
Dogs and children are always welcome, and Nowadays entrance is free every day except during Mister Sundays performances, where tickets can be purchased ahead of time here.
If you can make it out early today, kick off the season at their 2-for-1 happy hour, every weekday from 4 pm to 7 pm.
