Brooklyn party-throwing institution Mister Saturday Night today announced a crowdfund to help them open a new indoor space at their Ridgewood bar and restaurant Nowadays. Founders Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin want to build a 5000-square-foot expansion so they can begin hosting their MSN and Mister Sunday parties in a permanent space.
The planned indoor area will include a dining room and a dancefloor, and transform what was previously a seasonal, outdoor-only space into a year-round one. Along with their club nights, Carter and Harkin will also use the space to host listening sessions, film screenings, weekly live concerts co-presented with Le Poisson Rouge, interdisciplinary classes, and a new menu created by chef Henry Rich of Rucola, Fitzcarraldo, and the Commissary.
Carter and Harkin's Kickstarter campaign has a base goal of $50,000, intended to help them do a thorough job of permitting and licensing the space. Their second goal is $100,000, which would allow they to buy two sound systems. They hope to successfully fund the project by May.
Rewards for pledging range from a recording of the first Mister Saturday Night party at Nowadays to a private party for the backer and 200 of their friends.
