Precious Metal

A yoga studio and venue for "chill-out parties" in a former chicken slaughterhouse. 

Precious Metal is an eclectic mix of urban decay meets ironic hipster decor. The bar is owned by the same people who run Pine Box Rock Shop.  Jeff & Heather Rush and Colin Peer clearly have the knack for finding spaces with morbid histories- Pine Box is housed in what was formerly a casket factory. Where Pine Box excels in draft beer selection, Precious Metal makes up for in craft cocktails. The entire menu was created by their bar staff- one of whom was selected in the top 50 bartenders in NYC in 2015 (TimeOutNY). 

Some people are a bit slow to the party, and take the Precious Metal name a little too literally- in July 2016 a group of 4 guys from Connecticut attempted a jewelry heist. Needless to say they were unsuccessful. 

Precious Metal also recently started offering a weekend brunch menu in partnership with Brooklyn Whiskers.
