DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Vintage fashion, booze-infused desserts and grilled cheese sandwiches are all that's jumping out of this dark alley.

Grove Alley, a dead-end street once called "a candidate for the worst street in Brooklyn” by Forgotten New York, will soon see new life. On Friday night the alley will be jumping with live music, food trucks and vendors.

"The venue is the perfect backdrop for the musicians and market vendors — a gritty, undiscovered alley sandwiched between Fulton and Livingston streets," Downtown Brooklyn Partnership wrote on its blog. "We coordinated with local property and business owners to transform this dead-end street into one of the most unique locations in Brooklyn."

Grove Alley Nite Market will feature music by Trouble City All-Stars, The Toothaches, and Heems formerly of Das Racist plus. The Morris Truck, Hibachi Heaven, Spirited, and Rickshaw Dumplings will serve street eats.

Brooklyn Brewery will provide the beer.

The event is organized by The Gowanus Nite Market and starts at 7 p.m on Friday June 28. Check out this flier for more information.
