The long vacant space at 71 Pineapple Street will soon become a new café and wine bar, to be called Vineapple, acording to the press release we received from Julie Meyer of Eat Well Global. She says it is scheduled to open June 1, though my quick look at the premises yesterday suggests much work remains to be done. I do hope they keep that “English Sunrise” door.
According to the press release:
Keeping things local is key and Vineapple will highlight awesome Brooklyn-based businesses, including Stumptown coffee, sweet and savory treats from Pickle Petunia Made, and tasty beverages, including beer, wine, juices, teas and homemade sandwiches. It will also feature local art and music with a tailor-made soundtrack courtesy of [Owner Pooja] Raj’s fiancée [sic], well-known Brooklyn musician and Further drummer Joe Russo.
Vineapple will also have “comfy couches, chalkboards and books for kids and a lending library.”
