​Bossa Nova Civic Club reopens following "significant" fire damage

Brooklyn’s Bossa Nova Civic Club has reopened for the first time in nine months.

The club was “significantly damaged” in January after a fire broke out in the apartment above, leaving a dog dead and one person seriously injured. Bossa Nova Civic Club was made to close following the fire.

To the delight of the NYC scene, the venue has finally reopened its doors. “Let’s try this again,” the Bossa team posted to Instagram on Saturday, October 1.

The post showed a flyer for the club’s first reopening event, which took place on the same night. Acts included Juliana Huxtable, Bearcat, Honey Dip, and Devoye.

The opening night saw queues around the block from around 9:PM, according to Bossa Nova's owner John Barclay.

“We didn't think it was gonna happen. The opening night was pandemonium,” Barclay told DJ Mag. “We are looking forward to doing what we've been doing for the past decade.”

Bossa Nova Civic Club first opened in late 2012 with a capacity of just 140. After the blaze broke out in January the club took to social media, announcing: “The building sustained significant damage and it's safe to say we will be closed for a notable amount of time.

“We will update soon. Thank you so much for 9 years of support and friendship,” they said. A GoFundMe page was subsequently set up to help the venue get back on its feet, as well as help staff and tenants of the building.

Since then, the team behind Bossa Nova has launched a brand new, multi-story club called Paragon.
