Some details about the new Bronx Brewery East Village via their announcement:
The Bronx Brewery East Village will combine limited-release brewing, the brewery’s signature events, art & music from rising stars across NYC, and a special guest in the kitchen.
The space will bring the brewery’s goal of building community through a diverse, creative and inclusive environment to an iconic neighborhood long known for its creative energy.
The Bronx Brewery East Village will be designed as a communal space, no matter the time of day. From brunch to a beer with friends to a night of live DJs, its multilevel layout – including immersive seating in the pilot brewhouse – will feature a variety of ways to engage with the space.
Murals and revolving street art will cover the walls and hi-fi sound will saturate the space, creating a showcase for New York City’s top up-and-coming artists, DJ’s and live acts.
The space will also give the brewery another vehicle to give back to the local community, with the limited-release brew series set to be used as a recurring fundraising platform for community organizations in the South Bronx and East Village. Earlier this year, the Brewery supported Puerto Rico relief efforts in collaboration with Bronx performer Richie ‘Crazy Legs’ Colon, while the Brewery will continue to open its doors as a venue for charitable causes.
They opened the Taproom, Brewery and Backyard in the South Bronx nine years ago.
The Bronx Brewery team is planning a Meet the Neighbors party in the space before construction begins this spring. No word on a date just yet.
No. 64's retail space has been vacant for nearly four years. NYC Velo moved next door to No. 66 in the spring of 2016.
The building sold to an LLC with a West 22nd Street address for $6.95 million in March 2018, per public records.
