The Press Release:
When Knitting Factory Brooklyn closed in August with a performance by Hannibal Buress, they promised to return to their roots in Manhattan for the first time since the original venue closed in 2009, but remained coy about the details. Now it can be told: Hospitality entrepreneur Nick Bodor and Knitting Factory Entertainment (KFE) are excited to announce their first collaboration to bring a new neighborhood café, bar and performance space to the East Village, New York City and to the world: Baker Falls (pop.298) at the legendary 101 Avenue A, on the site of the former Pyramid Club. Baker Falls’ performance space will house Knitting Factory Manhattan. The entertainment complex is scheduled to open in February 2023.
Nick Bodor has a proven track record creating and operating beloved, long-running spots in New York’s East Village, including Cake Shop, The Library bar and alt.coffee, as well as Bruar Falls in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
