best times – i slept with a nappy headed bitches in the womens bathroom. its a great place to get nailed in and to catch all sorts of STD's. i give this place an A ++
Booooo – So bad. This place looks nothing like the picture. It's real dingy, and I would never bring a girl there. Of course it's in Williamsburg, an overrated, ugly, inconvenient neighborhood. You weren't even allowed to smoke outside the place. Not many women (can u blame them) and the guys are confused and gay. This dump gives Brooklyn a bad name, now my Manhattan peeps will never come out here again! We had to retreat to New Blu in the E Village.
The best bar in Brooklyn – On a positive note this place is great. The sound is actually too low in my opinion. The crowd is extremely friendly and very diverse, probably the most peaceful crowd I've ever seen. Don't believe me then check out that bouncer they have.Probably the smallest bouncer I have ever seen. I dont think a place with lots of trouble gets a bouncer like him. Unless he knows karate or something. I doubt it.
How they get these bigname DJs to come and play in such an intimate space is amazing and the design of the space is sharp.
This place has heart.
Hey smart guy, don't live above a space zoned to be a bar – There's nothing illegal about this place, unless new laws have been passed that make good people and good music illegal. As far as the owners not caring about their neighbors, these owners are the complete opposite. This place will either succeed or fail based on the quality of DJs they bring in and their sound system, yet they have lowered the quality of their system (knowing this could limit who wants to come in and DJ there) to try to appease their neighbors' complaints the best they can and still maintain the venue that patrons go there for. I'd bet you couldn't find me another bar owner who would do that. These owners have put their hearts and soul into this place to make it what it is. They at least deserve the right to make it or not based on their own actions, not due to the opinions of some neighbors who don't like the music.
If you haven't been to Triple Crown yet, you should check it out before people like the commenter below (who, by his/her own account, has never even been there and probably never even met the owners) succeed in making good music and the people who listen to it viewed as a bad thing for the community.
libatious simplicity in its best incarnation – here it is in a nutshell: - extremely socially diverse and welcoming crowd, amazing and varied DJ's (both celebrity guest and in house stable picked) , sincere and cordial staff, very affordable drink selection, and the cherry on top? very nice respectable decor...
As far as the neighborhood impact, i can sympathize with both sides... nobody wants their walls vibrating every night, and thats coming from somebody who would shove an entire speaker in my ear if i could... however, this is a place that has values. there is no fighting on the street, very little litter left by its patrons, they dont keep a ruckus outside the joint and the ONLY complaint they get is for the noise. but its is a haven for people who have no ill intentions but to hear some good music and enjoy the company of some intelligent like-minded hiphop fans. this place is a rarity and i really hope its hear for a long time. The situation the neighbors are experiencing is one that unfolds everyday. New places are opening up in residential neighborhoods all the time. its is a realityof city life. just because you arent in manhattan, dont forget you agreed to live in the bigest metropolis of them all, NYC! i have the same deal in ft greene. people are out in the street till 3 and 4 in the morning at full blast so i know the feeling, but you have to kindof accept some of it as part of city life. if you want peace and quiet move to outer bushwick or into some real suburbs. a major attraction of the city is its nightlife and vibrant social scene, which does include loud music. there is no such thing as a quiet bar. it is there to provide music, social exchange and yeah, some good bootyshakin. stop hating. this place is the wolf's howl...
YOU HAVE NO RIGHT – This is NEW YORK CITY let alone AMERICA - and dont get started the 'you cant move your body' cabaret laws - I am pretty sure that you are a renter - NOT A HOME OWNER - if you don't like living near a bar, in a neighborhood full of bars and young people, MOVE
The so called 'community' who is attempting to push out these owners has another thing coming if they think this will succeed. Far more community members (what are there, 12 of you?) who know nothing about this fight will fight FOR THIS BAR and for the racial 'anti-hip hop' slurs from you neighbors
The owners of Triple Crown are nice men! College educated family men who put their heart and soul into this place only to have a few, most likely, rent stabilized tenants nearby offering NOTHING to this community try to shut them down with NO LEGAL premise is RIDICULIOUS! You have no right and no legal standings
Move above a bar and then complain that it's loud? – I can't help but respond to the comment left by the person below who lives above Triple Crown and complains. It's funny to me that you would move above a bar and then be surprised to find that it's loud. I agree with the 2 posts below mine, MOVE! I lived in the lower east side where my neighbors had lived for years before me and played their music RIGHT OUTSIDE MY WINDOW, and you know what I did? I MOVED. I didn't call the cops, I didn't post things on the internet about it, I just moved. You see, this is New York City, I didn't move here thinking this was the suburbs, look at any commercial, movie anything depicting New York City and you get a picture of a dirty city that is LOUD.
Also, knowing the owners after coming to the bar and meeting them, I found that they are really good people. If perhaps you took a minute and went downstairs before it got busy and spoke with them, they would do their best to accommodate you. I will say this, I lived at 108 Bedfod Avenue last summer and that slum railroad apartment building you're fighting to keep quiet is a total DUMP! The landlord wont even spring for new stairs in the entryway, once one of the stairs collapses, he nails a piece of wood down and thats that (pregnant woman beware!) Also, I lived on a lower floor than you did and nothing shook on my walls, but again whatevers happening in your place could be due to the fact that the building is falling apart!!!! I could understand fighting to keep a luxury apartment you OWNED quiet, but you are a renter at an overpriced dump, quit complaining and move already. Also, about your stat regarding the number of complaints, the same person can be calling all day and each call is considered a new one. So all 20 times you call the cops, counts as not 1 complaint, but 20!
But I love Triple Crown, I really enjoy the music and would hate to see it go. Don't let the neighbors bully you boys, find a way to make it work for them and keep it moving. Good luck!!!
Its a definite Sore on this neighborhood – I am writing this because there are no options left but to get public opinion on our side. I dont go to it, i live near it. I know what music they play regardless because it comes through the floors, the walls, the hallways and out their front door... They dont care about their neighbors, generally ignore requests to turn it down and make it difficult to live near it. They have the most complaints with the local precinct that i have ever heard of and as a person who loves clubbing, I have actually called the police on them because the music gets so loud it vibrates walls and floors all the way to the 4th floor. The local community board is trying to shut them down for their numerous violations and for you to support them by patronizing them is to support illegal dance clubs. Without a cabaret license, they are making it difficult for the legitimate businesses that actually go through the trouble of getting a license. Dont believe me about how bad they are and how many violations they have amassed? call the night desk seargent at the 94th precinct, or Seargent Ryan of the noise complaint department.
Dont take my workd for it, check it out yourself and then let them know how you feel bout clubs that dont try to work with the people they inconvenience.
Bombers 44 4ever – I dont like that Tipley character.
Or that pops guy, who names their kid pops?
you like it funky, eh? – i went on a saturday night with my lady and must say it gets not much funkier than this. they play hot music here - so hot, i went to the DJ at times to find what albums some songs came from and where i can find the songs for myself. the drinks kicked my ass... evident from my struggling to not enjoy the seats too much while there's dancing to be done. everyone's friendly - hostess, bartenders, owners... i made this one of my reg spots.
