Last summer, we did a piece on The Footlight Bar, the new bar, music, and arts venue coming to Ridgewood. Now, over half a year later, the space is set to open very soon! The two owners, Laura Regan and Gabo Rodriguez are veterans in the local bar, music, and arts scene, making their collaboration one with many combined experiences  They plan to bring something new to the neighborhood without stepping on the toes of already established businesses.

The space, located at 465 Seneca Ave, is set to be a multi-purpose venue bring together local artists and musicians looking to showcase their work, and a place for local residents to gather and have a good time. You can also expect theater, comedy shows and open mic nights, just to name a few. Look forward to an extensive beer menu and bar snacks as well!

Keep an eye out for more information as their official opening date draws near! It’s shaping up to be a fun new place to hang out in Ridgewood.
