Mission & History

BABAR BASICS

Brooklyn Allied Bars & Restaurants 

In 2010 we created an alliance of NYC bars, restaurants, venues and cafes working to navigate the needs of our industry & advocate for better policies. Our network of local owners & operators help each other with the day- to-day issues of running their business. Our group also brings the industry together for advocacy and meaningful local charitable giving. Together, we have gained representation on local community boards and convened with city agencies and elected officials whose decisions impact our businesses.

INDUSTRY SUPPORT

We  appointed the NYC Nightlife Advisory Board and co-founded the OutSmart campaign to improve safety awareness for our guests. We have also organized panels on topics such as the no-gratuity movement, plastic bag bans better ecological waste management, best practices for sustainable food operations, and alternatives to high credit-card fee processors.
