BIG APPLE BRIXTON TEAM UP WITH ICELOLLY.COM TO OFFER ONE LUCKY BIG APPLE BRIXTON GUEST A TRIP TO NEW YORK CITY
“I have Social Disease. I have to go out every night. If I stay home one night I start spreading rumors to my dogs.” – Andy Warhol
The award winning team behind Brixton’s South Pole Saloon (Design My Night’s ‘Best Pop-Up London 2015) and summer 2016’s Brixton Beach Boulevard have revealed their plans for their Winter 2016 pop up – Big Apple Brixton. The rooftop venue will give visitors the experience of travelling back to New York City circa 1977 –
There is a rattle and hiss as a Subway train hurtles by, the painted metal a riot of colour – a speeding canvas for guerilla artists against the smoking cityscape. This is The Big Apple 1977 and the city is on fire.
In the Bronx, a new kind of hybrid music – a DIY collage of looped Funk and Disco breaks that will one day dominate the sonic landscape – is being born on street corners and in makeshift dance halls. They call it Hip Hop.
In Central Manhattan the lights of Broadway shine down on the throngs clamouring outside Studio 54, as inside Warhol gets down with Grace Jones, and the stars swing from the mirror balls and dance, ankle deep, in glitter.
There’s electricity in the air tonight and the streets themselves feel alive – because this the city that never sleeps, where the party never stops and the night is always young.
Opening on October 27th, Big Apple Brixton will host three themed indoor bars and one themed nightclub based on iconic venues from 1970s New York City. There will also be four private rooms available for private hire including a barbershop, record store, Latino chapel and peep show.
The rooftop venue will feature day and night parties, music line-ups including internationally renowned hip hop, disco and house artists, American street food vendors and seasonal cocktails.
Following the opening night on October 27 (free if you sign up to the mailing list), Big Apple Brixton’s opening weekend will feature a Halloween Festival. Applebum will be hosting the Friday night taking guests on a journey through the history of Hip Hop and RnB culture. Saturday’s party will feature Big Apple Brixton resident DJs, fancy dress, games, prizes and more…
To celebrate the launch of the rooftop venue Big Apple Brixton have teamed up with icelolly.com, the UK’S leading holiday price comparison website, to offer one lucky winner a trip to New York.
