Brooklyn when the lights go out

The design and culture scene in the Brooklyn neighbourhood of Greenpoint is hotting up, and now you can see the best of the bunch under one roof.

Taking over a huge warehouse every Friday and Saturday night from 1 November is the Brooklyn Night Bazaar – a veritable treasure trove of all sorts of unusual bits and pieces.

Up-and-coming designers and vintage sellers (including Bum-Cake and Top Shelf) will have stalls packed with quirky menswear and womenswear. Magpies can pick up rings and necklaces and brooches from independent jewellery-makers. And as-yet-unknown artists and illustrators and will be selling one-off artworks and prints.

To keep warm, there’s comfort food – steaming balls of arancini, melted cheese sandwiches, smoky barbecued meats – from street-food trucks as well as local produce from Eagle Street Rooftop Farm and wines from the Brooklyn Winery.

Right in the middle of it all, there’s a nine-hole mini-golf course, and a table-tennis room sprayed by Brazilian street artist Rafael Sliks. The soundtrack has been curated by arts and culture magazine Paste, and there’s live music from FatCat Records.

Brooklyn Night Bazaar takes place 6pm-12am Fridays and Saturdays from 1 November 2013 at 165 Banker Street, between Norman and Meserole Avenues, Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York (
