Okay,now close your eyes! Now I want you to imagine "Boardwalk Empire's" styled deco meets home grown Brooklyn swagger and you've pretty much have a GOOD idea of what co-owners Sam Barron (Maggie Brown's), Tom Wentworth (TV producer/writer), and Gina Jankowski (art curator & extended Block Association member) were going for when they collectively conceived the layout for their (soon to be on & poppin' bar) "the Emerson." Taking the namesake from the bar street's location & also the American poet/artist (Ralph Emerson) they too look to support the growing community's art movement by dedicating wall space for future exhibits. The Emerson will mark the FIRST bar (no wait, "bar" is not the right term for this space. "Liquor lounge" or even "wine & spirit sanctuary" is best suit), that you will leave with MORE brain cells from drinking than you came with! Due to the fact that the Emerson will play host to movie screenings, ol' school soul & funk appreciation nights, art exhibitions, as well as private wine tastings. Besides the state-of-the art sound system and projection screen, did I mention that they have a plush POOL TABLE too? Go head say it... niiiice! And YES food WILL be served their too, to soak up the TEN on tap drafted beers they boast having. Now I dare you to leave this place and not use the word...
1.imposingly fashionable and elegant
2. expensive and showy; stylish
