Bardot Celebrates Its Fourth Anniversary: "It's Become the Go-To Spot"
Fast-forward four years and Ben-Zion's club has become one of the city's best hipster bars in one of Forbes' Hippest Hipster Neighborhoods in America, where lounges and art galleries peek out from every corner.
"We always book good talent, and over the last two and a half years, we've made a commitment to book local talent and more big names, but we're still committed to the local music scene," Freshman insists.
DJ Ynot, one of Bardot's residents, agrees.
"It's become the go-to stop," the DJ says. "It's not on the beach and the musical integrity is pretty high, so the music is always interesting.
"On any given night, it's something outside of the box and something worth seeking out, not your usual Top 40 shit."
Unlike many other clubs that tend to stick to one genre of music, Bardot caters to all tastes. And Ynot believes that's a big part of its success.
"If I wanna play disco, I can play disco. If I wanna play some new trap shit or whatever I'm in the mood for, I can. You don't have that freedom everywhere. It's very unique to that spot."
