Every Thursday from 6 to 11pm, the Flea takes over the breezy elevated Topsider Bar at South St. Seaport for an outdoor weekly DJ party called “Seahouse,” featuring familiar Brooklyn and NYC faces on the decks spinning cool tunes in the summer heat. Before each DJ, our pals at Other Music present a “Listening Hour” featuring a pre-release album by faves like Franz Ferdinand and Delorean. Beers are $3 during the Listening Hour, 6-8pm.
Topsider has room for about 200 folks, a spanking-new well-appointed sound system, and a bar with Brooklyn brews, top-terroir wines, and mixed drinks including a Dark & Stormy with Brooklyn Soda Works ginger cola. (FYI Topsider is also available for private events of 75+ people—inquire here.) All 10 food vendors at SmorgasBar on Front St. will be open for biz, naturally. Also, it’s free. Can you think of a reason not to check it out? Us either.
Note: The final Seahouse is Thursday, September 5. It’s been fun!
