Silent Barn backyard, now with legal booze
Silent Barn

Bushwick's Silent Barn opened a cafe, serving up coffee from a new espresso machine and sammys and snanks from nearby Your Way Cafe. That's in addition to the standard beer, wine and sake, which you can now legally drink in the yard. One employee told Bedford + Bowery that the venue expects to open a full bar at some point, opening up all kinds of possibilities. The Silent Barn cafe will be open from 4PM through shows. The cafe has plans for zine readings, book clubs, and kid-friendly activities during the day. Also: free wifi. Anyone been? How them sammiches?

As for live shows, tonight (8/19) at Silent Barn it's Chimes, The Love Ways, Lost Boy? and The Veda Rays. Then on Wednesday (8/20) it's Heavens Gate, Weekends, Advaeta, Bueno, and Et Al.

being able to drink in the yard is so clutch, it gets hot as fuck in silent barn.

Obviously Grimes is playing Silent Barn tonight and Chimes is just a clever ruse.

That's cool. Next step: actually announcing when shows are happening/cancelled.

So how does that even work? Hey, I would like a sandwich. Sure thing! I'll just bike on over to Your Way Cafe and get it for you.

That looks like a cool venue there that they got for $40,000 on Kickstarter.

What the fuck are "sammys"? Or should I ask: Who is Sammy?

This looks like a shitty hangout for teenage stoners. How much of a chump do you have to be to have given money to this place?

@10:22 See the photo of the story posted at 4:48 p.m. for your answer.

I hate everything about that picture and what it represents.

10:08, I assumed the place was like next door, haha, maybe your way sets up their own little booth and has either materials for sandwiches or premade sandwiches in coolers? The place looks shitty from the pic above, definitely wouldn't bring kids there, maybe they'll clean it up?

Cant wait to chill in the gravel filled lot.

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2014 12:20 PM

I would never eat a snank in dump like this.

I went here last night. The espresso tasted like Hot Turtle Squirts.

chill

They really should train their staff to make espresso drinks if it's on the menu. I'll never order one there again, just saying.

@4pm a soggy fridge sammy doesnt make sense when you can go to little skips (or any cafe nearby) and get one fresh to order

Posted by Anonymous | August 21, 2014 1:52 AM

I never got these hipster Bushwick cafes anyway. I'd rather go to the bodega down the street and get coffee for 50 cents rather that spend $3 plus tip at Little Skips and sit around trying to look important and coming off as incredibly pretentious.

fuckin yuppies calling this place a dump. would you prefer a glass front building and a fenced-in pursedog run area?

8:56 doesn't realize that the people who frequent these types of places actually are yuppies.
