good things to know

It’s always free to hang in our backyard, but we do charge a cover for some of our indoor events. There’s a cover indoors after 10pm on Friday and Saturday, and indoors and outdoors until 9pm on Sunday. Most of the time, you can get discounted entry by shooting us an RSVP in advance.


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. In 2017, they opened an adjacent indoor space to allow Nowadays to serve as a gathering place no matter the weather or the season.

Harkin and Carter are the longtime resident DJs and organizers of 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, which happen to be some of our favorite places to eat and drink in New York City.
