Jify Pop
Indie Rock and Jerk Burgers in Brooklyn

Join us now, friend, on a journey to a place where stoppage-time goals don’t happen and the alluring aroma of jerk spice fills the air...

A place called Jify’s, a new Caribbean drinks spot/dinner spot/perfectly sweaty dance platform. It’s now open on North 6th in Williamsburg. Know this about it...

It looks like your typical Williamsburg watering hole.
A lot of beat-up wooden surfaces. Some old vinyl records lining the walls. A few festive ferns. (That’s right: festive ferns.) The kind of spot you’d find with a thatched roof in a land where rum and illicit substances are major exports. You know, like Williamsburg.

But it’s hiding a tiny indie rock and house music venue.
Cameo Gallery is located behind the space. There, you’ll catch a combo of before-they’re-cool bands and just-passing-through legends. (Frankie Knuckles spun here before shedding his mortal coil, and Bob Odenkirk has popped in to do comedy.)

Jerk burger alert.
You’ve got one here. Along with a coffee-rubbed skirt steak.

There’s a cocktail called Losing My Edge.
The key ingredient: jalapeño-infused tequila. And yes, it’s named after the LCD Soundsystem song. All the drinks are named after songs by bands the owner is buddies with.

So don’t hold your breath for the Hangin’ Tough.
