Bossa Nova Civic Club Throws a Membership Card Party

Since opening a year ago on Myrtle Avenue in Bushwick, Bossa Nova Civic Club has been showered with positive press (including a PAPER Nightlife Award for "Best New Bar" and New York's Magazine's "Best New Dance Club" title) and has become a destination even for old-school Manhattan types (see: restaurateur Florent Morellet gushing in the New York Times last month: ). While the rare balance it achieves between confident chic-ness and gritty authenticity has resonated far and wide, at its core, Bossa Nova is a neighborhood hang, a "Cheers" for a certain segment of the Bushwick art and music scene. In a pro move that simultaneously celebrates their anniversary, honors their core supporters, and capitalizes on all this buzz, they threw a private membership card party last night, in tandem with the announcement that they will now be charging a cover on weekends and instituting a "complex, arbitrary and unfair weekend door policy" (from which cardholders will be exempt). Read their official statement/invite below, along with our photos from the night.

TO CELEBRATE 1 YEAR OF BEING IN BUSINESS WITHOUT MAKING ANY MONEY, WE AT BOSSA NOVA CIVIC CLUB AKA THE WORLD'S HOTTEST NIGHTLIFE DESTINATION ON MYRTLE AVENUE IN BUSHWICK, HAVE DECIDED TO START CHARGING PEOPLE MORE MONEY.

STARTING ALMOST IMMEDIATELY WE WILL HAVE A COMPLEX, ARBITRARY AND UNFAIR WEEKEND DOOR POLICY, WHERE WE WILL BE CHARGING A COVER LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE ALL ALONG.

LUCKILY FOR YOU, AND ANYONE ELSE INVITED TO THIS EXCLUSIVE AND MAGICAL EVENT, IF YOU SHOULD CHOOSE TO ATTEND, YOU WILL BE GRANTED A FREE "MEMBERSHIP CARD" THAT WILL EXEMPT YOU FROM ANY WEEKEND NIGHT COVER CHARGES AND PROBABLY ALSO WAITING IN LINE.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN INVITED WE PROBABLY THINK YOU ARE COOL OR MAYBE YOU HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING US FROM THE BEGINNING OR ARE SUPER PLEASANT.

PLEASE COME, CHAT, AND HAVE YOUR PICTURE TAKEN BY Aurora Halal WHO WILL BE MANUFACTURING AND LAMINATING THE CUSTOM CARDS ON SITE.
XOXO
BOSSA NOVA CIVIC CLUB
