The Knocks are one of our personal favorite pop bands yet to fully break into the mainstream, and at some point soon, these two NYC dudes are going to be massive. It's only a matter of time. Their music blends dance, pop, and indie rock in a way that'll make you feel excellent. If you subscribe to our monthly Spotify BEEEEEATS Playlist, you should already by familiar. If not, get with the program.
The Knocks, aka Ben "B-Roc" Ruttner and James "JPatt" Patterson, operate their own studio on the Lower East Side, so these guys know the area as well as anywhere. The proof is in the Friday Fives pudding. Cheeky's Sandwiches are where it's at.
The Knocks' "perfect for" Picks
"This place has the best chicken biscuit in town, super friendly staff, and is right down the street from our studio which is very dangerous."
"The speakeasy downstairs is a great place for a birthday party or drinks if you're celebrating anything really."
"We are pho snobs, but this place is easily the most authentic and best priced... It even delivers well which is rare for pho."
"Our homies own this place and we have had too many good drunk/debaucherous times there to count.. at night and at brunch time."
"Hands down the hottest girls per square foot in Chinatown/LES on any given night. Oh yeah, the food is popping too."
