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.
