Last night, Bed-Stuy got its newest bar. The folks at Peaches have renovated the space where Bread-Stuy used to be and turned it into a bar for folks in the neighborhood to hang out, chat and enjoy each other’s company. It’s a much needed addition to the neighborhood and I’m looking forward to spending long evenings bending elbows at the bar or holed up in a window seat on a summer’s day.
Before they opened, owners Craig & Ben let me in to get a first look at the place. They’re also our first confirmed stop on the next Bed-Stuy Crawl, which will tour Lewis Avenue on Saturday, June 2nd.

The space is pretty much unrecognizable from what it used to look like as Bread Stuy, which was always comfortable, but a little snug. The ceilings seem higher and the windows bring in much more light. The exposed brick adds a homey feeling and cushions in the window remind me of my favorite spot next door at the restaurant.

I was happily surprised to see what a nice beer selection the bar will have. With a dozen bottles and eight taps coming, I won’t have to worry about sacrificing variety for closeness.

I wasn’t able to make it to opening night and we’re off to Mexico tonight, but when I get back, I’m very much looking forward to settling in at the new bar.
