The CBD’s favourite New York inspired Speakeasy bar is turning three. To celebrate, they are throwing a three-day party and revitalising their Gin & Cocktail bar with a balcony.
Bumping their 120 capacity to 200, this outdoor dining and drinking entertainment area is set to give BRKLYN guests a new spot to watch Rundle Street from above.
With NYC being a melting pot of culture and cuisines, BRKLYN are taking this on board to create a a venue that concentrates more on their food offering. With share plates already a huge hit, they also have a previously d’Arenberg Cube chef coming on board, which will be an exciting new addition.
The movement towards optimising their food offering is so that it works in tandem with their extended trading hours coming soon. BRKLYN is planning to open for Saturday balcony Lunches as well as Sundays.
Bottomless filter coffee is also going to be making an appearance in the near future.
“It’s something we’ve wanted to do from day one to really enhance our ‘Taste of New York in Adelaide’ offering,” says owner, Rashaad Cézar.
“We’re also looking at doing New York Lunch bagels real soon as another thing we’ve wanted to do since day one.”
Along with the balcony extension and upcoming food and coffee ventures, the BRKLYN team are revitalising their venue from a small bar to a hub for creatives and the new function space is a major signifier of this transformation.
There will be ‘Balcony knock off offers’ weekdays from 5-7pm which will rotate every month, making this the prefect destination for city workers.
You can first experience the balcony on the weekend of the 26, 27 and 28 April. The lineup is looking absolutely sweet with a different collab each night.
Friday 26 April will be Balcony Knock Offs. You can expect $14 Reuben Sandwiches, Mismatch Tinnie Bar featuring their current range and a groundfloor radio pop up record fair.
The Saturday Night is the official Balcony Launch Party. There will be free pizza from New York Fold (For the First 50 in), Never Never tastings as well as $14 Never Never Cocktails all Night and 2 for $15 Never Never G&T’s. There are also $30 bottles of bubbles.
On the final night of celebrations, you will find $14 Bloody Marys, $10 Fried Chicken Bites and $6 tinnies all day.
