Party Earth Veronica People's Club Review

The Scene

Nestled among the alternative boutiques on Franklin Street, and sister bar to Heathers, Veronica People's Club is a popular hangout for Brooklyn hipsters looking for a break from the panic of Williamsburg.

Nestled among the alternative boutiques on Franklin Street, and sister bar to Heathers, Veronica People’s Club is a popular hangout for Brooklyn hipsters looking for a break from the panic of Williamsburg.

Exposed brick, a photo of a dead horse, and a shelf of pastoral dioramas glowing verdant green in glass cases form the backdrop for the laid-back indie rockers and punkish girls huddling around stovepipes in the dimly-lit wooden alcoves, while other amiable Brooklynites chat around the bar up front as they wait for their Intelligentsia coffee, muffins, or beer.

By day, the place is a quiet coffee shop full of hung-over locals and a steady stream of chill hungover young professionals picking up breakfast on the run, but nights see the energy rise as neighborhood artsy types show up to sip cocktails, catch a rare live acoustic act, or bop along to the DJ’s mix of punk rock and Top 40 classics.

During warm weather, guests soak up the sun on the backyard patio, enjoying cool drinks among the derelict lawn furniture and yard sculptures.

Though a little off the beaten path, Veronica People’s Club is a destination spot for old souls sick of the amateur hour along Bedford Avenue.

Lots of charm
Chris K. Nov 15, 2012
It's hard to get to Greenpoint, but getting to Veronica People's Club is even harder! Fortunately, this place has a lot of indie-rock charm and good vibes to it. Between the Sunday brunch rush of coffee drinkers and laid-back local hipsters and the late-night good times of queer events and DJ sets, this relaxed cafe/bar is adorable and fun to spend your time at. The decor, a stripped-down white-wash sort of look accentuated by strange yet adorable dioramas and art pieces, only helps further the feeling that you're in a safe place away from the rest of this terrible town. If you're a Greenpointer, make an effort to stop by.
