Mayday Bar and Community Space Set to Open in Bushwick This Fall


A new commercial building at 214 Starr Street in Bushwick will soon be home to a bar, cafe, and community and social justice coworking space named Mayday. It’s set to open in the fall, although the second floor event space will be available July 1, according to the group’s online description.

Event and office space will be available to rent on a sliding scale, and longtime Bushwick community organization Make the Road will hold adult education classes and other events there. The bar, a fair-trade cafe and more event space will be located on the first floor in a 1,000-square-foot room with a “top-notch sound system.” The bar and rentals will help subsidize public programming and social justice initiatives, said the group. 

We’re not sure who is behind the venue or the building, but permits give the owner’s address as performance space Bushwick Starr, just down the street. GMAP
