Nowadays is a unique, seasonal outdoor space for experiencing exceptional music, food, drinks and other cultural programming, situated on the Brooklyn-Queens border. With the opening of our five-thousand-square-foot, sun drenched, acoustically treated indoor bar, communal dining room and dance floor later this year, Nowadays will be open year-round.


Music is our passion at Nowadays, but it’s also a chill place to relax with any number of friends. We have tons of space outside, and there’ll be plenty more when our indoors opens. There’s a full bar and a food program overseen by Henry Rich of Metta and Rucola, and we take reservations for large groups.

Nowadays’ back yard is the home of the long standing Mister Sunday dance parties during the summer, and when our indoors opens, it will be the home of Mister Saturday Night as well as a place for new dance parties with local and international DJ friends playing on a world class sound system on a beautiful dance floor.

This year Nowadays will also host an outdoor weekly live music series in partnership with Le Poisson Rouge, and when the indoors opens, it will be the new home for Planetarium, the hi-fi listening and live music event series started by owners Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin. In fact listening is a theme at Nowadays. On Friday and Saturday evenings in the back yard, we host collectors and selectors to showcase their favorite records from 8pm to 2am, while you hang, eat and drink.

We also host a weekly film series in partnership with Maysles Cinema and host classes on a range of really edifying and interesting topics with our friends at Think Olio.

Kids can always run free, and dogs are always allowed in the yard on a leash.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at a table, in the back yard, at a class, a film screening or concert, or on the dance floor soon.

The good old days are Nowadays.

Nowadays was opened in the summer of 2015 by Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter. Harkin and Carter are the longtime resident DJs and tinkerers behind Mister Saturday Night and Mister Sunday, two of New York’s most beloved parties. In 2017, the pair was joined by Henry Rich, owner of MettaRucola, June and Fitzcarraldo, some of our favorite places to eat and drink in New York City.
