Dear friends, we are very happy to announce the opening of Bar Laika, our new space in Brooklyn.

Located in Clinton Hill and designed by architects Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Müller, Bar Laika was conceived with both our local neighborhood and the extended artistic community in mind. Our food menu is based on local Atlantic seafood and farm fresh and foraged vegetables, and is a result of a decade-long collaboration between e-flux and Hsiao Chen, an artist and chef. The cocktail list is organized by Danna Vajda, an artist and bartender, and the wines are selected by sommelier Florence Barth. The music is selected by DJ Sanna Almajedi, and an extensive program of screenings, talks, and readings is organized by Lily Lewis and Anton Vidokle, with help from Ingrid Erstad, a curator and chef. Come have a drink with us!

Bar Laika will open this coming Thursday, October 18, starting at 5pm. Dinner will be served 6 to 8:30pm, and a screening of Anri Sala’s Intervista (1998) will begin at 9pm, followed by Japanese curry and drinks.

The following Saturday, October 20, at 5pm, don’t miss The Otolith Group and the screening of their wonderful 2012 film on Etel Adnan, I See Infinite Distance Between Any Point and AnotherOur menu for the evening is prepared by The Otolith Group’s Anjalika Sagar.

On Tuesday, October 23 at 9pm, after dinner service, join Elizabeth Povinelli for a screening of The Mermaids, Or Aiden In Wonderland (2018) by the Karrabing Film Collective.

On the B52 Greene Ave/Grand Ave bus shelter outside the bar, we will be presenting a series of oversized artists’ posters specially commissioned for Bar Laika. The series starts with Liam Gillick’s Let Us Drink, Death Is Certain.
