Sake Bomb Special Blowing Up ShangHeights Nightlife

Every Tuesday is Sake Bomb night at Kapowski’s, where the classic Hong Kong frat-boy party starters are just $2 from 9-11 PM.

“People definitely get fucked up. I’ll just say that off the bat.” says sultry Julie, who bartends Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. “We just want people to have an awesome time and blow off pre-hump day steam.”

People will know bar owner Kelly Thomas from his much-loved Bedwick gastropub, Bushmen, which is still going strong after 2 years of operation.

This sake scene is starting to explode: On weekends after 10 o’clock, the usually crowded tables are pushed against the wall, and the ample back room is turned into a sultry, sweaty dance party with well-known DJ’s rotating through every week, spinning killer tracks.

“I think this place really has become a destination. Whereas like 6 months ago, people who lived down here would take a car or the train up north to the more like established neighborhoods, but I feel like now, there are more places for them to party. That’s a really great thing.”

Bartender Julie isn’t wrong.

With a few more hotspots to choose from, SH will start to turn heads even in Bushwick.
