Grit & Glamour: How Nightlife Diversified the Lower East Side
If you visited the Lower East Side for the first time tonight, you might think that the nightlife consisted only of cologne-drenched dudes scouting the best rooftop (or more likely, basement) bar scene and high-heeled ladies shouting in the streets. True, this neighborhood has witnessed an explosion of bars, clubs, and music venues in recent decades. But it wasn't always about parties that drew lines down the block. In this installment of Talk&Taste: Evenings at Essex Street Market, we look at how the bar scene has transformed much of the Lower East Side from grit to glamor, especially in the last decade. We'll hear directly from bar owners, including Hair of the Dog, Top Hops, Lucky Jack's and Donnybrook. They'll share their experiences in operating bars that draw a diverse crowd of folks, and how they stayed relevant -- and dependable for their customers -- in the age of dance clubs. Join us for this free talk, and beers to taste! The event will start with a tasting at 6:30pm and then a panel discussion from 7-8pm at Essex Street Market. *Tickets are free but RSVP is required!* This event is sponsored by Hair of the Dog.
