New York nightlife is back booming ahead of the summer and last Friday saw a new party establish itself as the hot spot to be seen in Brooklyn. Copacetic kicked off a sold-out night at Avant Gardner in the intimate Kings Hall, with performances from lo-fi icons Black Loops playing direct and DJ Seinfeld headlining.

The venue was transformed into an intelligent yet playfully designed space that included expertly placed production (the room has never sounded nor been lit so well!). Many of the carefully considered Copacetic specifics included a round-shaped industrial-style DJ booth on the dance floor, which housed a giant cozy rug for the artists to enjoy, set with vintage TV monitors with waves that moved to the music as the booth backdrop. A giant industrial spotlight overhead which dulled as Seinfeld settled into his set further finished off the centerpiece, with open flow onto the raised stage behind the booth allowing dancing and a new perspective of the room. All photos by Jamie Rosenberg.

Surrounding this, the room’s rear wall was graffitied with giant tick marks, an artistic reference to the event’s name. Sofa seating backed onto a lo-fi projection style wall for party goers to chill out, whilst a stack of TVs and monitors sat nearby which filmed those walking by and had a special gadget to distort the view.

These details elevated the experience giving more depth to the event alongside the dance floor. The roaming 35mm photographer was the perfect addition, delivering a fly-on-the-wall capture of the event in the brand’s style and crowd in attendance. The bar housed specialty cocktail offers, including the Copacetic premium margarita – which again was a special touch that elevated typical nightclub event offerings.
