The Stage is Suspended Over the Bar
From the street you may notice that the facade looks like one of the old churches that is the center of every pueblo pequeño (little town) in Latin America.
The bar is owned by a former doctor who takes care of the building like it is his patient. He’s originally from Colombia, so if you’re from South America, you’ll feel at home the moment you walk in.
The stage is suspended over the bar, so it’s really unique. Terraza means “terrace” in Spanish, and it’s near the (7) Train, so it’s Terraza 7 of course.
The owner is a graduate of Universidad Nacional de Colombia which is sort of the UC Berkeley of Colombia. Graduates tend to become politicians or at least active in their communities.
Terraza 7 has a funky good underground community vibe. It’s one of those special places that you’ll only find in New York City.
