The Babe Bartenders Of Bossa Nova Civic Club

If no one knew, the Galore offices are in Bushwick- the coolest part of Brooklyn: LET’S BE HONEST. So, to showcase how cool everyone and everything is here, we’re highlighting the coolest things going on in the coolest place. Oh wait, did I mention how fucking cool this neighborhood is, it’s nauseating. Now I’m going to be sick because I’ve said cool too many times and now I’m ashamed of myself.

The bar I frequent most, more than I probably frequent things that I should frequent a lot (can’t think of anything), is Bossa Nova Civic Club. Located in Bushwick, Myrtle & Hart, Bossa not only home to pretty much the best electronic music probably in NYC to be honest but also is home to these four BABEZ that work behind the bar: Ashley, Aziza, Deanna & Sandy have served me way too many drinks and served the whole of Bushwick way too many drinks. So naturally they must be introduced to those who aren’t familiar with the talent that operates in this neighborhood, now you know. Get on the fucking train and get off at Central M Stop, and come holla- wait, don’t do that, just say hello.

Galore fave Rachel Roze is responsible for all these AMAZING photographs, and flawlessly captured each of these lovelies in their work environment.

What do you love about working at Bossa?
I love the music that plays while I’m working. I always have fun and find myself dancing behind the bar. They do such a good job at booking some of the best talent in music today!
What’s your liquor of choice?
My liquor of choice is Tequila! Winter or summer I always do tequila.
What’s your favorite Bossa cocktail to make and how quick do you think you can make it?
My favourite cocktail to make is La Mayimba. It’s citrusy, refreshing and easy to make. I think I can do it in under 2 minutes.
What’s the most annoying thing customers do?
When people don’t tip. Especially Europeans. Also, people who get a free drink and don’t tip. Whether you’re a friend, a regular or a DJ: TIP.
Why is Bossa the best bar ever?
It’s not pretentious. We just like good music and good vibes. It’s so eclectic.
Bossa nova is like a home, people feel welcomed and they keep coming back.

Working with people that you can call a second family.
What’s your liquor of choice?
Tequila. Preferably Espolon.
What’s your favorite Bossa cocktail to make and how quick do you think you can make it?
La Mayimba because it always gets the “wow what is that?” and “that looks good” responses. I could make it in about 25 secs…I think.
What’s the most annoying thing customers do?
Jesus, everything.
Why is Bossa the best bar ever?
Because we’re comfortable with each other which makes customers comfortable. Plus our boss is pretty cool.

What’s the most annoying thing customers do?
When a customer asks for almost any sort of alcohol artificially flavored via manufacturer (eg.Fireball) I find it terribly annoying. It makes me question their judgement.

THE VIBES!!!!!!!!

What do you love about working at Bossa?
I love how we are all a team, rather than one man standing alone. We’re all individuals, different in our own ways- a melting pot.
What’s your liquor of choice?
Jim Beam, but I’m a Red Wine drinker.
What’s your favorite Bossa cocktail?
Everything, except for the Flamingo.
What’s the most annoying thing customers do?
“What beer do you have on tap”, as they stand directly in front of the drafts and looking at our menu. As well as “can I have Tecate?”
Why is Bossa the best bar ever?
It’s the best because of the customers and staff. The positive diverse energy the staff has, encourages the customers to come back over again. Bossa is the only club in NY I guarantee you…that you will come back to over again and enjoy. Promise.
