With a focus on building a music community around the space.
A new audiophile bar called Eavesdrop is opening in Brooklyn, New York City, March 2022.
Eavesdrop is inspired by Japanese izakaya in its food and drinks menu, and kissa music bars in its ethos.
“Our mission is to bring Brooklyn’s community of listeners, artists, and curators together in a cozy neighbourhood environment that lends itself more to listening than to dancing,” explains Eavesdrop. “We believe that with the right DJ, sound system, and atmosphere, music of all kinds can be celebrated and experienced anew.”
Its sound system is designed by Danny Taylor, founder of House Under Magic. Eavesdrop’s DJ booth features Technics turntables, and a MasterSounds rotary mixer. The space also features Danley Sound Lab SH60 loudspeakers and Seaton Submersive sub-woofers, with wall and ceiling acoustic treatments.
“We incorporated the same design principles as one would in building a recording studio, such as hidden sound absorption and treatment,” Taylor shared with RA.
