Village Voice's Description
This Ditmas Park space has been hosting cozy shows for the better part of three years now, offering up its affectionately named "Whiskey Cellar" performance area to a number of genres on a nightly basis. When the bar functions as a flower shop during the day, one could easily expect the common pigeonhole of "kitsch," which gets thrown around a lot here--thereâs even a âbeer and flowersâ option on the menu ($10). Given the at-times raucous vibe of the bourbon bar upstairs, seeing a show in the basement of Sycamore might seem like a risky idea. But none of the noise filters down and the intimate vibe feels more like those good old days in college, as the programming varies from improvisational jazz to folksy blues. The tiny little room and performers rarely even need microphones or amps to get their tunes across. And the standing cover of $10 ain't too bad, either. --Dale Eisinger
Tips from foursquare
Walk through the flowershop and make your way to the bar where they host special “tasting” events, as well as music, comedy and offbeat performances.
Pretty much any drink here is even better than ever if you pair it with some of the amazing flowers that you've gathered together in front of the bar.
