Michael Brovkine – jazz aficionado, programmer and co-founder of the online-based Made in New York Jazz Competition and Festival – is the creative mind behind Made in New York Jazz Cafe & Bar (stylized as “Made in NY Jazz”), conveniently located in Park Slope. Constructed with the intent of bringing high-quality jazz musicians and performances back to the Brooklyn neighborhood where the genre once flourished, Made in NY Jazz will present two ticketed shows daily, five days a week Wednesday to Sunday, with sets generally scheduled at 7PM and 9PM. Ticket prices typically run $20 and under. Made in NY Jazz is a fully-seated venue with a fifty-seat main room and an adjoining bar that can accommodate an additional twenty patrons. Co-founder and chef Boris Bangiyev, whose culinary talent has been highlighted in The New York Times, the Food Network and the New Yorker, has crafted Made In NY Jazz’s delicious menu. The venue offers a reasonably priced, high-end selection of tapas, pub food and a house-specialty Wagyu beef burger accompanied with cured pastrami, mushrooms duxelle and smoked gouda cheese. The bar serves over 25 wines by the bottle and 11 by the glass, 6 beers on tap and a fully-stocked liquor cabinet featuring unique, house-steeped apple and horseradish flavored vodkas. Food and drinks are served prior to, during, and following shows. The restaurant and bar are also open daily to the public Wednesday through Sunday and serve an all-you-can-drink weekend brunch from 11am to 4pm.
