Podcast: Mike and Janos check out Hi-Fi Bar

In front of the old Joe Strummer mural on East 7th. Too old for 40s- we're baggin' cheese fries and fried oreos.

Janos.nyc kicks off a new series in which Janos and Brooklyn-based musician Mike Corbett and I explore some of New York’s old venues.

Last night we visited Hi-Fi Bar, now home to an epic jukebox in the space that once held classic indie dive Brownie’s. I called Mike to do a quick recap.

Check out the podcast here.

This being a jukebox bar, we decided to put together some excellent playlists, which dominated the bar from about 7pm to 9pm.

 

 

Not the easiest juke to work, but it has a lot of choices.
