Southpaw - Closed

125 Fifth Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11215 | Park Slope | 718-230-0236

Location Description:

Park Slope, long the territory of strollers and food co-ops, now has an honest-to-goodness neighborhood rock (and rap and electronica) club. Housed in a 5,000 square foot, former 99 Cent Discount Store, Southpaw brings Manhattan-caliber talent (Sleater-Kinney, Slick Rick, TV on the Radio) to Kings County, and serves cheap beer in a luxe, lounge-like atmosphere. Don't miss monthly hip-hop dance party the Rub; it's legendary.
