Public Records is a big restaurant/bar in Gowanus that feels like a communal space you’d find in a utopian condo building. It has high ceilings and a huge skylight in the middle, there’s a great sound system, and the ceilings are lined with shelves of records (which seems impractical, but looks cool). There’s also a venue in the back that hosts ticketed shows (DJs, mostly), as well as a full vegan menu in case you want to sit down for dinner. Try this place when you want to have some casual daytime drinks and listen to good music with a group, or stop by on a weekend night when you’re looking for a place where you can potentially dance.
