The Real Deal New York

Bushwick gym, doubling as an event space, seeks liquor license

Bushwick may already be famous for its gritty industrial ethos and its throngs of hipsters. Now a local environmentally conscious gym is looking to up the ante. Green Fitness Studio, located at 232 Varet Street, wants to let its hot and sweaty members cool off with a Pabst (PBR, in Williamsburg-speak) and has submitted an application for a liquor license to prove it, according to DNAinfo.

The multi-level gym is known for its recycled workout equipment, grass-covered roof, capoeira and yoga classes, but it could soon become a host to rooftop events in the evening.

“We’re having parties in the space,” Sebastian Almada, a manager at the studio, said. Almada added that the venue has already begun renting it roof to promoters, such as Black Market NYC, that possess their own liquor permit. [DNAInfo] – Christopher Cameron
