The New York Underground
NYC is becoming boringly corporate, but Drom keeps alive that old school basement night club vibe. We always have fun there. The little plates of food are pretty good for sharing too.
Like Istanbul, Drom feels like a crossroads of the world. The owners are Turkish Americans who have a distinctive point of view in their curation. Turkey is the tip of West Asia and home of one of the world’s great civilizations.
You can hear the West Asian influence in the flamenco, the blues and all the musical forms that developed from them – even in salsa and reggaeton. The oriental influences reached the Americas through West Africa.
Flamenco, one of the tap roots of Latin music, passed through Turkey on its journey from Northern India to Spain and the Americas, absorbing everything along the way. You can hear the “along the way” in many of the shows at Drom.
