Brought to you by the owners and designers of Audio, the freshly minted Love and Propaganda opened this weekend with LA-based producer Goldroom headlining Friday’s premier, followed by rising stars Autograf and Kasbo spinning on Saturday. Co-owners David Brinkley and Danny Hai invested heavily in the 18,000 watt Funktion One sound system specifically designed for peak acoustics in the intimate venue.
Located in the same location as the recently retired Vessel, the redesigned interior features “an industrial aesthetic juxtaposed with neoclassical elements with a punk edge.” Chandeliers, gilded art and black leather seating all adorn the 5,700 square foot club which will offer 3D projection to compliment the high fidelity sound. With regards to the entertainment, brothers Peter and Chris Doukakis (also of Audio) plan to book an eclectic mix of DJs with genres spanning nudisco, house and indie-dance.
Love and Propaganda will bring a welcomed new late-night option to the Union Square/Financial District area for dance music fans. If Audio was the warm up, then L&P should be the grand slam.
