Looking for a place that has it all? Well you’re just in luck!
The Red Pavilion, Bushwick’s soon-to-be go-to day to night destination is combining theatrical cabaret with alchemical sound journeys and wellness workshops. Seems like quite the combination—and we’re here for it!
Opening to public on Wednesday, March 8th, The Red Pavilion will offer an extensive range of programming and culinary indulges, from Sunday dim sum brunches to live Chinese and American jazz on Fridays. Remote programming will also be available, such as online workshops and wellness meal sets.
Founders and team members, Shien Lee and Zoey Xinyi Gong, are on a mission to increase Asian representation and uplift the larger BIPOC community through “a new age of avant-garde nightlife” full of theater and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TMC).
“The Red Pavilion creates a stage for local artists and performers to share their vision and for people to come together and enjoy thoughtfully curated live entertainment in a memorable, cinematic space,” says creative director Shien Lee. “From its inception, The Red Pavilion was designed to be a soulful place for like-minded and like-hearted people to connect, get inspired and build community.”
During the day, customers will be able to choose from TMC herbal shots and 10 different functional teas to pair with an assortment of medicinal desserts and meals like Qi-boosting bone broths and seasonal congees.
The Red Pavilion will also host a chef’s table dining experience to celebrate the year’s 24 seasonal points, “which is thought to help diners align their bodies with the current season,” explains the press release.
By night, cocktails including a Sesame Colada (tequila, wolfberry-infused Baijiu, caramelized pineapple, mangosteen and white sesame paste), The Red Dragon (mezcal, tamarind, blood orange, lily bulbs, lemon, agave, Sichuan chili powder with a poppy seed rim) and Moon (longan-infused vodka, lychee, Salers Gentiane aperitif and lemon) will be available to order.
Upon entering the space, guests will be entranced by red and neon accents and traditional Chinese lanterns that evoke the space’s “retro-futuristic” aesthetic. The venue fits a standing capacity up to 225, spanning 2,500 square feet.
