About this Event
We are super excited to be back to Jupiter Disco for the third time this year, just in perfect time to celebrate holidays with all of you!
TonyDeepDisco will be spinning an eclectic vinyl set alongside Onakan DIsco.
If you peek through the dilapidated warehouses and storefronts in Bushwick, you’ll usually catch sights of bearded men or Edison bulbs signaling “Cool gentrification bar here.” Jupiter Disco, however? Not so much. Its block is so deserted that you might be taken aback when a bouncer coolly asks, “Looking for Jupiter?” Sure, it has a silly name and proudly touts a midcentury dystopian sci-fi theme, but the industrial, LED-lit bar is much less a cheap play at Instagram likes than an earnest letter to the science-fiction genre.
ORDER THIS: Pop-culture–nodding cocktails, named after everything from British prog-rock songs (a tequila-vermouth quaff dubbed Confusion Will Be My Epitaph!) to chapters of The Hobbit (a rye-and-sherry–blending Riddles in the Dark). While not every cocktail from bartenders Al Sotack (Death & Co.) and Maks Pazuniak (Maison Premiere) fully takes off—the Well Deserved Punch ($12) is a sugar overload of pineapple, lime and strawberry—the applejack-based How to Travel ($12) surely does. Its sweetness of honey and vermouth is tempered with bitter IPA, striking a smooth, floral balance with a pop of fizz. Heads-up: The bar eschews a physical paper menu for a drinks list that scrolls on two TVs, so keep an eye out.
GOOD FOR: Your own modern-day Mos Eisley cantina. (A framed blueprint of the beloved Star Wars tavern can be found on one wall.) The bunkerlike space is outfitted with orange florescent lights, dark turquoise booths and nostalgia-inducing tech tchotchkes like spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes and a functioning reel-to-reel tape recorder—basically, things most millennials won’t recognize.
THE CLINCHER: The team says that the bar’s soundtrack is just as vital as its drinks. And with a top-of-the-line sound system that runs through a custom rotary mixer and an alternating lineup of local DJs spinning an assortment of progressive disco, synth and electronic music, the jams, like the digs, are otherworldly.
BROOKLYN’S “DIVE BAR FROM THE FUTURE” JUPITER DISCO STAKES ITS NYC CLAIM WITH HIP-LOOKING, FANTASTIC-SOUNDING DANLEY SPEAKERS AND SUBS
Like a scene from Star Wars or Blade Runner set in the middle of Brooklyn, Jupiter Disco is a refuge for intergalactic bounty hunters, replicants, and thirsty, trend-setting New Yorkers. Celebrated mixologists Maks Pazuniak and Al Sotack opened Jupiter Disco with inspiration drawn from their mutual love of dystopian science fiction. That unmistakable aesthetic combines with a solid foundation of world-class drinks and big, reference-monitor quality sound. Danny Taylor, from House Under Magic, designed the sound system for Jupiter Disco, relying on his long history with Danley Sound Labs’ unique, patented technologies to give the bar impactful, detailed sound with a “grills-off” aesthetic that fits the theme.
“This is Maks and Al’s passion project in a scene filled with taste-makers who are very enthusiastic, but also very critical,” explained Taylor. “Sure, they had to put money into it to pull it off, but the real key to Jupiter Disco’s success is their genuine passion. The scent of genuine passion (or its lack) is really picked up on, and you can’t buy your way into it. The drinks and aesthetic are an obvious priority at Jupiter Disco, but the sound system is as well. They wanted to bring in DJs, along with limited live electronic acts in support of a local scene here in Brooklyn. They wanted an awe-inspiring sound system at Jupiter Disco.”
