ARE you ready for something completely new Long Island City? A vinyl-inspired cocktail lounge called ‘The Record Room’ is coming to 47-09 Center Boulevard, the former home of Baked Culture.
Founded by Aaron Weaver and Shih Lee, ‘The Record Room’ will be a music-focused setting for people of all ages and backgrounds to listen to great quality sounds, whether it be Motown, Disco, 80’s Dance, or more recent music. Basically, whatever moves ya!
While Shih needs no introduction in LIC, this will be Aaron’s first foray in the hospitality business following a career in commercial real estate and a post-college stint with the Kansas City Chiefs. Yet the concept is his life-long dream, and he’s been a regular on the LIC scene for over a decade.
In addition to great quality music, there will be cocktails, bespoke and more simple. And at the front entrance, there will be a cafe serving coffee, pastries, light sandwiches, and soft-serve ice cream.
Come weekends, they’re hoping to serve a more substantive brunch with seating on the Center Boulevard sidewalk in nice weather. For now, you’ll be able to stroll through the cafe to the back door and snake your way via a narrow magenta-hued hall of vinyl to be greeted by a wall of sound upon entering the lounge when it officially opens on April 29.
//WHILE posting about Spring and sending salutations to all the religious holidays that were occurring, I was neglectful in not including Ramadan. My apologies come with a recommendation to partake in Iftar, the nightly meal to break the fast, at any of the Middle-Eastern restaurants along Steinway in Astoria. Take advantage of all that Queens has to offer.
