Park Slope jazz club closed after fatal fire breaks out in apartment above it

Made in NY Jazz Cafe & Bar

New Park Slope jazz club Made in New York, which opened in October in the space that formerly housed Nargis Bar and Grill, is closed after a fire broke out in an apartment above it. As Patch reports, the fire broke out around 2 AM Wednesday morning (1/22) in the top floor apartment of 155 5th Ave. Firefighters found two people in the building, a 37-year-old man who was tragically pronounced dead upon his arrival at New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, and a 22-year old woman who was in critical condition.

Michael Brovkine, one of the owners of Made in New York, told Patch that all upcoming shows have been cancelled following the fire, saying, “we will be closed because the building is closed.” He said that because the club’s bar is positioned under the upstairs apartments, water used to fight the fire appear to have damaged some of the club’s instruments, including its piano. “My condolences to the family and it’s much more important than the club right now,” he continued to Patch.

The cause of the fire is currently unknown, and under investigation by fire marshals.
