The Brooklyn bar scene keeps popping up with fun and creative spots to grab a drink—and we’re all here for it!
South Williamsburg is now home to the awesome new Warhol-themed bar, Silver Factory. The name itself is a tip of the hat to Andy Warhol, since his the Factory he worked out of was “called by its frequent visitors as the Silver Factory for its tin foil wrappings, silver paint, and also the silver balloons Warhol brought in and left floating around the ceiling.”
The bar’s walls are painted silver to match, with photographs of Warhol himself.
It’s described by them as:
“[A] place for creative gatherings, which offers not only moderately-priced Korean fusion dishes that are inspired by New York lifestyle, but also art pieces and commodities that are designed by local artists and designers.”
There’s a chandelier hanging from the ceilings that mirrors the Chandelier photograph taken by Andy Warhol in the 1980’s, and plenty of neon lights throughout the space.
Silver Factory’s icon is a banana, which nods at the Warhol painting Banana from 1967.
Located at 270 South 5th Street, this new space is an absolute must for any fan of a good drink and the arts (or of Andy Warhol’s art specifically).
