Before we could realize our original dream of building a gorgeous green roof above littlefield, a year and a half ago we got the all-too-familiar news that our landlord would not renew our lease. We were determined to stay in the neighborhood we've called home for the past eight years, and have been incredibly fortunate to find an old printing warehouse around the corner, which comes with a 4,000 square foot outdoor lot! After a year of planning and slow-but-steady construction, littlefield is very excited to announce: littlefield. That’s right, we’re re-opening littlefield, now with a new outdoor sister bar and restaurant called Parklife.

We’re very close to completion on both spaces, but we need your help to get us to the finish line! Your generous pledges will assist with littlefield’s moving costs and convert the exterior space from an empty dirt lot into Parklife.

Littlefield will continue to offer quality and diverse programming with up-and-coming and established artists that you've come to expect from us, with the addition of a brand new state-of-the-art sound and lighting system to complement our unique events.

As littlefield’s sister bar and restaurant, you will feel right at home at Parklife with its familiar vibe. Expect friendly staff, signature cocktails, and recycled materials that make up the physical space. Plus Parklife will be open all year-round for the community to enjoy.

Risks and challenges

It's tough to navigate through New York City’s myriad rules and regulations when it comes to designing, building and permitting a new space. It’s an unpredictable, complicated and expensive process fraught with challenges, but fortunately we gained valuable first-hand experience from building, maintaining, and renovating the first littlefield over the years. We also work with an amazing team of engineers, architects, designers and contractors who understand what littlefield means us, our patrons and our community.
