The New Irondale Center space

The new Irondale Center, to be located in the old (and quite grand) Sunday School room of the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church, is having an opening party this Saturday, Oct 11, from 1pm-10pm.  There will be entertainment and beer from Brooklyn Brewery.  The center will produce theater performances and provide educational outreach to the community.  Looks to us like a fantastic addition to the hood.

November 7, 2007

Gnarly Vines is throwing what looks to be a fantastic grand opening party tomorrow night.  RSVPs were supposed to be in by yesterday, but maybe they’ll slip you in if you ask nicely:

Please drop by to help celebrate our grand opening. Bring your appetite, as we will feature sumptuous dishes from many of our favorite neighborhood restaurants paired with some fabulous wines. You won’t want to miss this very special event. We hope that you will join us! Watch your email for more information.
Please RSVP via email to by Tuesday, November 6.

I’ve been to this shop once and can enthusiastically vouch for it.

The Hideout

For those of us who’ve been waiting for an alternative to the crusty, “watch where you step”, “watch where you sit”, joys of the much beloved Alibi, a new bar is set to open in Ft. Greene sometime before Halloween. It’ll be called The Hideout and plans to serve a menu of 50 upscale cocktails as well as rare, microbrewed beers, carefully selected wines and very good list of champagne (bottle service will be available). One of the owners, Kasim, says that even well drinks will be made from good liquor.

There will be outdoor seating and, starting next summer, a food truck–inspired by the folks at Habana Outpost–that will allow for a full-dining and brunch experience.

It’s been painstakingly renovated over the course of the last 2 years and has a very cool full-restored tin ceiling. Landmarks won’t let them open until they have original looking doors on the exterior, but that’s the last hurdle. Check back on this site for an opening announcement.

Hours will be 6p-3a on weekdays and 3p-3a on weekends.
