Goggles and Top Hats in the House: Photos from Steampunk Stylin’ at The Way Station

Steamdog Michael

Okay, so we’ve been a bit gushy as of late about The Way Station—but, as the new den of nerddom in Brooklyn, why not? Last Sunday night was no exception, when the bar threw its first official steampunk event since its opening. Steampunk Stylin’ was a energtic night filled with fine musical performances, well-dressed gents, lovely hats, and, as the night wore on, an endless line before the TARDIS.

You can check out some pics from the evening after the jump.

The full album of photos is up over at Tor.com Steampunk’s Facebook.

Dear Ayleen, we know you're into alternative history- but don't you think when it comes to bars that's a little too far? I have been reading Tor.com for years and love the events it does but you are wrong in saying this is the first steampunk event this bar. Tor had an event there for its first steampunk month and if you look through the steampunk tag on Tor.com you can find three posts about it.

It always drives me crazy when people who are new to things never check their facts and assume that the first thing they go to is the first thing ever.

Hi Jim,

Tor has certainly had events at The Way Station for years, but these were always one-night events only, since the bar hadn't officially opened to the public yet. The Way Station has been on a long journey these past two years in order to officially open, and didn't actually do so until this February.

I've been keeping in touch with the bar owner, Anders, following his progress. We're really excited that he can finally open the doors to everyone, and so far, the bar has been trememdously successful. I hope you have a chance to see it one day!
