Part cocktail bar, part restaurant, part coffee shop, and part live music venue, Bar Lunatico is easily one of the most fun places to hang out in Bed-Stuy. It’s a very narrow little space, so if your priority is to settle in for a night of drinking and snacking and music-enjoying here, show up on the earlier side. That said, if you stumble into Bar Lunatico under any other circumstances, you won’t be disappointed. It feels like pretty much nothing else we can think of in New York - and more like the kinds of places we imagine you find in South America, or wherever enjoyable live music at bars is the rule, not the exception. To be clear - for NYC, this is the exception.
