Flowers For All Occasions

Flowers for All Occasions might not actually sell flowers, but it does do an awful lot. Rachel Nelson and her husband Erik Zajaceskowski (for ease, friends go with “Erik Z”) first opened their business in November, and it was the completion of a trifecta: They also own Secret Project Robot, an art gallery; and Happyfun Hideaway, a bar, but one that is further along the dive-y and party-heavy spectrum than Flowers.

Flowers For All Occasions

Similarly to Secret Project Robot, Flowers for All Occasions is an artist-run space with a small, back gallery setting. Upon the first walk-in, a wine bar and cafe offering a fun, affordable menu greets you. It seems like a great place to converse, grab a snack or write. As you move towards the back of the space, the gallery gets intimate, white wooden walls corroborating the ambience. When asked howFlowers for All Occasions varies from the other art and fun-focused projects, Erik told us “Secret Project Robot needs 150 people to fill the space at any given event. We wanted something that could still show the work of undiscovered artists, but in a smaller setting and could still feel like a great event with 40 people.”

Flowers For All Occasions

Sometimes, the ideal place to drink is in the comfort of your own apartment—or it would be, were it not for the dirty dishes, the sick cat, and the alarming thuds from upstairs. Luckily, on the Bushwick-Bed-Stuy border, there’s now Flowers for All Occasions, a homey bar away from home. This former flower shop was retrofitted into a “tavern / café / gallery” by Erik Zajaceskowski and Rachel Nelson, the husband and wife behind Secret Project Robot and Happyfun Hideaway. One recent evening, a lady evading her unbearably overheated living room curled up in a human-size driftwood cubbyhole and nursed a Cali Mucho—rioja and Mexican Coke—amid potted plants, Christmas lights, and old board games. The games had been donated by a dear friend and “hoarder of American-cool vintage stuff,” whose pregnant wife, Nelson said, demanded that he clear room for the imminent baby. The prodigiously bearded artist Gregory (Stovetop) McKighan dispensed Franzia boxed wine, beer, and soju-based cocktails (there’s a church next door, so no liquor) and the kind of snacks you wish you’d bought at Trader Joe’s (hummus bagel, cheddar pretzels) beneath TVs playing “Inland Empire” and the “Cremaster” cycle. Between orders, Stovetop worked on a drawing of a groovy dude—a re-creation of a painting that had been stolen from the bar’s back gallery, a space currently bathed in psychedelic black light. “It’s a weird compliment,” he said. “ ‘I like your art so much, I took it.’ It’s like, Thank you, but fuck you!” Most of the bartenders are artists, with pieces in the exhibit. “It’s a family affair,” Stovetop said, and offered to share his markers. ♦

Flowers for All Occasions featured dreamy pink neon window signage that identified it as a bar, that also offered espresso and cocktails, even if its actual name suggested it didn’t do any of that. The window sills were potted with green plants, and the door was open; people milled in- and outside; we went inside.

Some people walk in, who expect to buy flowers, says Nelson, and they are of course rebuffed—but not ultimately. “The idea was flowers for all, meaning the gift of, like, existence, in the philosophical sense,” says Nelson. “This is the flower.”

Husband-wife artist duo Erik Zajaceskowski and Rachel Nelson (Secret Project Robot, Happyfun Hideaway) stick to their schtick of arty drinking spaces with this third multiconcept joint, taking over what was a florist’s shop. The “Adrian’s Flowers” facade remains, but the 35-seat interior has been revamped: Gnarled tree branches line the bar, and the tables and benches were carved out of driftwood found in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Near-daily art events highlighting works from local artists, including Zajaceskowski, Raúl de Nieves and Dean Anthony Cercone Jr., are fueled by budget-friendly beers and house punches, such as mango sake with blueberries and kiwi, guava-shot champagne and limeade with a chili-salt rim. Scrawled on a hand-drawn menu are bar bites ranging from a grilled cheese to a trio of sloppy joes.

Nelson and her husband are plugged into the art scene (via their gallery, of course, and Nelson is also an artist), and the staff are all, as Nelson describes it, “artists first.” (Another reason she kept the menu easy-breezy—simple things can still taste great, but anybody can prepare them without much trouble.) She and Erik also managed to incorporate a gallery space in the back of the bar. Installations change every month: presently, a video arcade is installed courtesy of Death By Audio.
