Bardot Celebrates Its Fourth Anniversary: "It's Become the Go-To Spot"
Via Facebook.com/theknocksnyc Celebrate Bardot's fourth birthday with The Knocks.
Bardot is turning four!
And in those four years, the Wynwood club has brought some of the best local and national indie, hip-hop, and electronic acts, including Surfer Blood, Gaslamp Killer, XXYYXX, and Peter Bjorn & John, to its floor-level carpet stage.
So, in celebration of its birthday on October 10, the music venue and watering hole will be throwing yet another liquor-fueled bash, this time starring NYC duo The Knocks, along with some other surprises that Bardot's Erica Freshman says, "You'll just have to see for yourself."
Prior to becoming Miami's quintessential art and hipster hood, Wynwood was a cluster of empty warehouses and former textile shops, where the only nightlife hotspots were the Electric Pickle and Cafeina.
And in 2009, when Wynwood was still in its early developmental stages and the nation was in the midst of an economic recession, opening a nightclub was an even riskier proposition than usual.
"Amir Ben-Zion, our partner and a visionary behind the space, knew that the area was gonna grow," Freshman says.
"[Brigitte] Bardot was a muse for Amir, and that's how the name came to be. The space is very replicant of her sensibility."
