Just last week (2/19), EV haunt Lit Lounge celebrated 12 years of good times, live music and occasional debauchery with a birthday blowout featuring DJs Jonathan Toubin, Paul Sevigny and others. Now comes word that Lit is opening a second lounge, this one in Bushwick’s McKibbin Lofts. Bedford & Bowery got the scoop:

The bi-level venue, about half the size of Lit but boasting 17-foot-tall ceilings, will consist of a small upstairs restaurant, open daily and run by artist Tessa Hughes-Freeland.

The upstairs restaurant, Currant Cafe, is scheduled to open Saturday, March 16 and the downtairs bar which will be called Lit is aiming for September. As for whether the new space will book bands, co-owner Erik Foss told B&B, “As of now we have no plan for live music. But that’s what we said about Lit, haha.”
