good to know

Nowadays is open for food and drink five days a week. We host parties indoors on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night after 10pm and on Sunday afternoon from 5pm, we host tea dances on the indoor dance floor. Covers vary but tend to be in the $25 range. You can find specific pricing and buy tickets for all our events here, and you can RSVP for reduced entry here.

A reservation is not required to join us for a meal or drinks, but it’s a good idea if you have a large group. (A reservation is just for food and drinks. To join us for a party, you’ll need to buy a ticket.)

We know that many people in our community are having a hard time making ends meet right now, so if the cover is a barrier for you, drop us a line at a few days before you’d like to join us. You deserve a chance to gather and dance, regardless of where you’re at financially.


The wheelchair entrance to our indoor space is in the driveway, which is the access point most commonly used to enter Nowadays. During parties the driveway gate is locked, so please ask staff at the street entrance for assistance with entry.

All of our bathrooms are gender-neutral. There is one accessible stall indoors. Just ask any Nowadays staff member for the key, and they can show you the way. During parties, seating is available both on and off the dance floor. While we don’t have a dedicated quiet space indoors during parties, the booths next to coat check are a little quieter, and the deck and back yard a little quieter than that. Most nighttime parties include the use of strobe lights and water based haze.

The ground in our back yard is rough dirt with some gravel, and the dance floor, which is in use on Sundays between mid-May and late October for Mister Sunday, is made of a soft playground material (it’s also a little uneven). There is one accessible bathroom outdoors, and places to eat are available at picnic tables and on benches.

Food is available until 11pm on weekdays and 1am on weekends, with snacks served around 8am on Sunday during our Nonstop parties. Both the indoor and outdoor bars have non-alcoholic drinks available for purchase. Water and earplugs are always free.


Nowadays was opened outdoors in the summer of 2015 by Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter, founding resident DJs of Mister Saturday Night, Mister Sunday and Planetarium. In 2017, they opened the adjacent indoor space.
