Nowadays is an outdoor and indoor gathering place on the border of Bushwick and Ridgewood. We have great food and drinks at reasonable prices alongside frequent cultural programming. We’re located at 56-06 Cooper Avenue, near Wyckoff. We are currently only open outdoors on the weekend because of Covid.


We’re temporarily closed, but we expect to re-open outdoors in mid- to late-March. For updates, sign up for our email list at the bottom of this page, or follow us on Instagram.

(Once we’re back open, you’ll need to have a reservation to join us.)

good to know

Because of our limited capacity and the cost of implementing safety measures, we will charge a $5 cover through an online reservation. We know that many people in our community have lost income recently, so if the cover is a barrier for you, drop us a line at — everyone deserves access to our space.


Nowadays was opened as a seasonal outdoor bar, restaurant, party haven and hang-out in the summer of 2015 by Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter, resident DJs and organizers of Mister Saturday Night and Mister Sunday. In 2017, they opened an adjacent indoor space to allow Nowadays to serve as a gathering place no matter the weather or the season.
