Where music and beer connoisseurs unite!
Upon envisioning the bar’s creation, owner Chris Maestro had discovered that a similar concept had already existed in Japan called jazu kissa (jazz cafes), according to Blackownedbklyn. Maestro knew that this type of space was needed in NYC and went on to establish his very own shop in 2017—being the first vinyl record craft beer bar across the boroughs!
The establishment has over 5,000 vinyl records on-site, ranging from hip-hop, funk, soul, and jazz.
On top of its wide music collection, the bar offers an extensive yet carefully curated tap list with a large portion of its beers sourced from local breweries found in North Fork, LI, or in upstate New York.
The warm and inviting space is lined with records and decorated with wooden benches, couches, and even has a beautiful backyard to enjoy!
Customers can expect live entertainment with in house DJs hosted throughout each week. Keep watch on their Instagram to see who is performing next!
In addition to being a beer and music lovers dream, BierWax targets the eco-conscious, being that it’s one of the only NYC bars operating on solar energy, shared Blackownedbklyn. With solar panels located on the roof, the bar draws it’s main source of power from clean energy!
