New Bar: Super Collider Bar

Located just inside our border at 4th Avenue and 17th street in what Realtors have dubbed the Greenwood Heights section of Sunset Park is the Bar Super Collider which opened a few months ago. At first I thought that it was named after the CERN Linear Accelerator in Europe but the owner of the bar Robert explained to me that the name stems from a meeting of coffee and beer drinkers and their colliding tastes. Robert is not new to the bar business. His previous bar was "RIFIFI" from 1998 to 2008 it was a popular watering hole in the East Village in Manhattan. The name I suppose was taken from the classic French film of the same name.  In any case, he sold that bar and moved into our area. I guess he missed the bar business because he decided to open this location. They do have music and at the moment it is acoustic open mike stuff on the weekends. Oh, and by the way, they also serve coffee. Drop in and check the place out and tell them we sent you.
