Collective Beginnings brought to life an empty warehouse in the heart of Bushwick, Brooklyn, with a night of talented artists collaborating together.

by Chloé Louise Smith

The curated space, filled with geometric neon lights and an earthy secret garden for people to relax on the grass with the scent of palo santo surrounding them, brought beautiful human beings together.

The dance floor was full of energy, thanks to DJs Damian Romero, MENDRIX, Gandaia, and Special Guests Tara Brooks & Kelly Kellam, who made every soul in the room get up on their feet till sunrise.

Guests were offered a specially designed bar experience by Punch & Pie. Cocktails were created by mixologist Logan Ronkainen, resident mixologist at Punch & Pie. Gypsy Juice was the crowd favorite, a refreshing elixir mixed with Notorious Pink rosé and Watson’s Watermelon Beer Cordial.

Punch & Pie has planned a second immersive spiritual and art event on October 7th, 2017, to continue these curated nightlife experiences.

Resonance: Berlin to Brooklyn, will be taking place in an undisclosed location in Bushwick and will be featuring all-star DJs from Berlin who are performing in NYC for the first time, as well as interactive art installations, 3D projection mapping and light manipulated structures.
