Grooving to the Music at Bossa Nova
One of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods in New York City is getting even more entertaining with the surging popularity of the Bossa Nova Civic Club, a European-style dance club where standing still is almost impossible and visitors are unable to resist grooving to the latest tracks in the techno and house music genres. The emergence and growth of this exciting club just goes to show that the Bushwick area is certainly one to keep an eye on. The neighborhood’s reputation for underground raves is being replaced with fresh new clubs and the Bossa Nova is a prime example.
The club itself can be found just a short walk from the J train’s Broadway stop. Other visitors riding the M train can almost directly access the club from the exit of the Myrtle Avenue stop. This 1,900 foot space presents a warehouse-style atmosphere and includes a huge dance floor, complete with brightly-colored strobe lights, along with a bar serving fresh cocktails and smooth juices to cool patrons down after hours of constant dancing. The way the club presents itself has a distinctly European vibe, while the warehouse setting and dimly-lit dance floor provides a rave-like feel to evenings at Bossa Nova.
The sort of crowds you’ll find enjoying the dance floor include the young and fashionable, with brightly colored clothes and retro-style accessories being the order of the night. In a refreshing take on the nightclub notion, Bossa Nova doesn’t include any cover charges or guest lists. The club presents itself and feels like one of the sleekest hotspots in the city, without the pretentious attitude that many of its rivals manifest in the form of pushy bouncers and endless clipboards. This attitude is evidently a prime cause for the rising popularity of the club as anyone is allowed to enter, meaning that groups of friends can enjoy a night together without the fear of being rejected at the door.
The music on offer is exclusively designed for dancing. The techno and house genres rule the turntables at the Bossa Nova Civic Club and the location also prides itself on the regular presence of a live DJ. Countless DJs, artists and dance producers from all around the world have spent evenings lighting up the dancefloor at the club, including the likes of Kim Ann Foxman, Aurora Halal, Octo Octa, and more. The club provides the perfect atmosphere and music for a unique night out and visitors will surely want to come back after dancing for hours on end.
Various drinks are also offered from the club’s stylish bar at reasonable prices. An assortment of juicy cocktails are on offer to match with the colorful strobes and flashy crowds, while patrons can also enjoy fresh juices and a decent variety of beers are on offer as well. The Bossa Nova is clearly making a name for itself as one of the hottest places to dance in New York and is well worth a visit.
