We are all about a neighborhood at the very tip of Brooklyn, called Greenpoint. So many new venues are constantly opening and attracting some of the trendiest people in the New York. Saint Vitus is one of the places you have to know about.
Greenpoint is a neighborhood in expansion. Some of the coolest ‘kids’ in New York live there and others are venturing into starting their own businesses. All locally made, which we love!
You can find everything from restaurants, bars, coffeeshop and famous donut bakeries, to hidden art galleries, apothecaries and even, a true rock bar!
The rock’n’roll Saint Vitus Bar is the first and only gothic-themed bar in the neighborhood. With dim lighting, they attract the metalheads and rock fans.
“FEARFUL naïfs may assume that heavy-metal bars are cradles of malevolence where depraved longhairs slake their thirst with bats’ blood. But Saint Vitus, a gothic-themed bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, named after a Black Sabbath song, is actually a welcoming spot for downing cheap beers and listening to Pantera.”
There they played an amazing full set of Nirvana Classics for the lucky crowd that was there that night!
The complete list of upcoming shows are online, so be sure to see what will be on during the night you plan on going.
