First U.S. hemp bar is now open on St. Mark's Place
The Brooklyn Dark Hemp Bar — who bill themselves the first Hemp Bar in the United States — is now open at 9 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. (They officially opened last Saturday, and have been handing out samples this past week.)
As the sign shows, they sell pastries, coffee, tea, etc. … using hemp seeds as an ingredient.
They also sell their signature chocolate bars, which you may have seen at various stores and food fairs.
The Hemp Bar's hours are 8 a.m. to midnight Monday-Friday; 11 a.m. to midnight Saturday-Sunday. You can read more about Brooklyn Dark at their website.
The address was previously home to I Am Coffee, which seemed to be open one day a week.
