Brooklyn Night Bazaar: Thursday – Saturday: DO IT!

So I’ve spent the last two months bustin’ my balls producing the next Brooklyn Night Bazaar. If you missed the first iteration of this Asian night market inspired shopping extravaganza this is your chance to experience the penultimate META market experience. There’s live music by the likes of James Murphy, Hold Steady, and Fucked Up. There’s over 100 vendors to feast your eyes and wallet and cross off your xmas shopping list for grandma Jane and your hipster dog. There’s art installations and live tattooing and a hippie yoga dome and enough amazing super famous food vendors (Asia Dog, Purple Yam, Luke’s Lobster to name a few) to keep you full til the new year. There’s a half pipe with hot professional skateboards and a beer garden to guzzle the night away. It’s inside a 40,000 sq ft warehouse in Williamsburg and I’ve been working too hard to ensure you experience nothing but magic this weekend.

So please come out, help me spread the word, and bring your posse to end the year in tune with the starzzz

Our press release:



BROOKLYN, NY – Inspired by night markets across Asia, Brooklyn Night Bazaar returns for the holidays, bringing together over one hundred of the borough’s most creative independent vendors, musicians, chefs, artists and breweries to showcase their talent inside a massive 40,000 sq foot warehouse on the Williamsburg, Brooklyn waterfront.

A confluence of the public market, art fair, food festival and concert, the Brooklyn Night Bazaar showcases the best in the New York cultural scene while creating a platform to support small businesses and independent creatives through dialogue, community, and commerce.  Building upon the success of the inaugural Brooklyn Night Market, which hosted over 5,000 revelers at the Dekalb Market this October, the Bazaar crew is pleased to present a stellar lineup of performers.

Opening night kicks off with a DJ set by James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) for the DFA opening night party. Venerated music blog BrooklynVegan curates our second night of music, and Brooklyn’s finest, The Hold Steady, headlines our finale bash on December 17. The Bazaar’s performance venue will be ticketed while the market will be free to the public.

The Bazaar reimagines the market as an immersive environment with the renowned architect Julien de Smedt who transforms the space with custom furnishings and sculptural lighting features as well as a floor plan inspired Lars von Trier’s Dogville. Nuit Blanche NY, founders of the Bring to Light Festival in Greenpoint, curate video art projections, live cinema, and VJ sets that transform the warehouse into a winter wonderland.

Brooklyn Night Bazaar at Dekalb Market: October 9th

I had the opportunity to co-produce this event and I’m super excited to announce the inaugural Brooklyn Night Bazaar to be held at Dekalb Market for a single night – Sunday October 9, from 5PM to 12 Midnight. The inspiration for the event comes from the night markets across Asia. On this night we will be showcasing local artists, vendors and musicians from Brooklyn and beyond. Here’s what you can expect to experience:

·      Live music with YACHT, Monogold, Trouble Andrew, and DJ Sets
·      More than 50 independent merchant and food vendors
·      Beer & wine garden featuring local breweries courtesy Sixpoint, Great Brewers and Brooklyn Winery
·      Light and sculpture installation by Jason Krugman
·      Games like Petanque and more

When: Sunday October 9th from 5:00 PM until Midnight

Where: Dekalb Market @ 138 Willoughby Street, Brooklyn – An outdoor market with retrofitted cargo containers in the heart of Brooklyn between Fort Greene, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights and Clinton Hill. The Bazaar is a stone’s throw from the B, D, N, Q, R, 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, G, and F trains, numerous bus routes and bike lanes. Transportation Alternatives will be providing free valet bike parking.

Several months ago we put together a successful Kickstarter campaign and despite some initial hiccups, we are very excited to be launching the concept at Dekalb Market for a single night. The event will be free to the public, except for the performance area which will be ticketed.  The Bazaar is expected to attract thousands from the surrounding Brooklyn neighborhoods and throughout New York who enjoy vibrant community gathering spaces with live music, warm ambiance and great times. Come out and enjoy!
