The Opportunity

Brooklyn Bazaar is a confluence of a night market, restaurant, concert venue, disco, Karaoke lounge, ping pong parlor and mini-golf course that become a staple in the Brooklyn nightlife and music scene.

Doug DeFalco started as an assistant booker at Southpaw in 2002 and worked there until it's closing in 2012. He created the famous Pool Parties Series at McCarren Pool as well as the epic Rational Animals GIMME SHELTER 2006 concert with The Beastie Boys, Blondie and others. DeFalco Presents continues to book/promote shows at venues all over Brooklyn as well as Manhattan including The Brooklyn Night Bazaar, The Riis Park Beach Bazaar, and the MoBeat Series at Brooklyn Bowl.
