Brik Bar offering 23 TVs and frozen drinks has opened on Steinway Street

July 21, 2014 By Michael Florio

A new bar and lounge on Steinway Street has finally opened.

Brik Bar Lounge and Kitchen, located at 32-16 Steinway Street, opened last Monday and aims to stand out from its competitors through its small dish and frozen drink menu as well as its ability to play multiple sports games and music videos on different TVs throughout the establishment.

The bar will look to meet what it believes is a growing demand for frozen drinks, such as frozen Margaritas, Daiquiris and Sangria.

“People are always asking for them and there is no other place around here that serves them,” said Manager Fred Nailes.

The frozen drinks will cost $6 from 12 pm until 7 pm. After 7 pm they will cost $12.

“Most places charge $18 for them,” Nailes said.

All drinks, for the most part, will cost between $6 and $12.

The bar will serve tapas and a wide variety of small dishes, such as a skewed chicken and steak. It will also serve pub/restaurant food, such as burgers, steak and wings. It also will feature shrimp, fish and chips, meatballs and quesadillas.

“We have a very good menu,” said Nailes.

The bar has 23 TVs spread throughout the venue.

“Say on one end of the bar people want to listen to a game– while other [patrons] want music—and a third group want a different game, I can play all three,” he said.

The bar also has a DJ booth, which it will start using once it starts hosting events. It plans on hosting a grand opening event in upcoming weeks.

Nailes said that the owners picked this location because it is a prime spot. He said being at the intersection of Steinway Avenue and Broadway brings a lot of foot traffic, especially being so close to the subway.
