Over the past year I have had the honor to collaborate with my close friend on the branding and design for his new bar The Narrows. Off the Morgan stop on the L train, it is one of evermore amazing little spots in the otherwise desolate neighborhood.

My friends and frequent collaborators Jackie Balzer and Brian McAllister worked with me on this project to provide flawless development work including WordPress integration with some custom plugins for fast and simple menu changes and event scheduling.
Feel free to visit the Narrows site or if you are in New York City head out to Bushwick grab a pie at Roberta’s and stop off at the Narrows for a seasonal cocktail or craft beer.
