GRAND OPENING! Outdoor Beer Garden, Nowadays, Opens Indoor Venue!
Text and indoor photos are from Mister Saturday Night.
After Nowadays’ first few years as an outdoor beer garden, the owners realized they needed a permanent home, so they set about turning part of the big warehouse adjacent to the big backyard into a year-round space.
“Indoors at Nowadays” will be a year-round home for food and drinks by Henry Rich from Rucola, Mister Saturday Night parties, new parties with DJs from New York and beyond, regular listening sessions, classes and other cultural programming.
It is already warm and inviting, thanks to a massive set of wraparound windows that bathe the space in northern and western sunlight. They also laid a large wood floor for maximum coziness. The inspiration for the inside portion at Nowadays is the live/work spaces Mister Saturday Night has called home for the past decade. Imagine a loft space where you can throw a dinner party followed by an impromptu dance party.
Nowadays is opening their indoor venue, “Indoors at Nowadays”, this weekend for the first time ever with two parties and an experience called Planetarium on Sunday. They are pleased to have their Mister Saturday Night in the space that they have been working on for many years. They designed the venue, the sound, from all their life experiences.
This Friday, check out their dance floor for the very first time. Bearcat, Night Doll, and Precolumbian are supplying the tunes. Part of the Discwoman collective, Kerrie Ann Murphy was born in London and DJs, produces and composes as Bearcat; Night Doll is an integral part of Fake Accent, a New York collective of queer DJs, visual artists and producers; and Chaska Sofia, aka Precolumbian, is a Philadelphia-based DJ, musician and cultural creator whose work focuses on empowerment and decolonization.
Nowadays will have their Mister Saturday Night Indoors this weekend on Saturday. “This is the first ever Mister Saturday Night in the space we’ve been working on for more than four years. It’s pretty exciting to be here now, ready to pull it all together. We hope you’ll come join us.”, said the owners.
On Sunday, they will do their first Planetarium, with special guest Huerco S. performing live, and their new resident DJ, Josh Dunn. This is for their immersive listening sessions.
Then, in mid-January, they will open their doors permanently for eating, drinking, learning, dancing, listening and hanging out… seven days a week
