Gowanus Lounge: Serving Brooklyn

On the Sofa, Daily Edition

August 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

“The wine bar on the corner of Hoyt and Union (directly below us), is a complete nuisance. We are constantly battling with them about noise, they continually stay open, or at least operating, until 2 or 3AM in the morning, with music blasting. Our 2 year old can not sleep, and is sometimes forced to stay awake all night, until 3 or 4AM when he finally gets enough quiet to sleep. This is completely unfair, and being that this new business will be under the same ownership, very telling of things to come. The owner, James, continually ignores our complaints, doesn’t return our calls, and apparently doesn’t give a shit about what his employees are doing after the bar is closed. We’ve been physically threatened by bartenders after asking them to turn the music down, and now we will be surrounded.”–Work Underway on Hoyt Street Oyster Bar of Doom
