The Four Horsemen bar will be situated in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighbourhood
LCD Soundsystem‘s James Murphy has announced his plans to open a wine bar in New York City.
As The New York Times reports, the musician and his wife, Christina Topsoe, will open a bar called Four Horsemen in early June. The drinking establishment will be situated in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighbourhood, serving food and up to 350 different wine selections.
Murphy has told the Times that he’s developed the acoustics of the bar himself. “That’s why it doesn’t sound cavernous,” he said. “All people will know is that they’re happy. They’ll not feel the unpleasantness.”
Last year, James Murphy launched his own coffee brand called House Of Good, made in collaboration with coffee company Blue Bottle. Its flavour has been described as “syrupy, well-balanced and thoroughly accessible” with tones of “dried cherry, cocoa, meyer lemon”.
Among his many musical projects, Murphy brought his Despacio soundsystem – a collaboration with Soulwax duo David and Stephen Dewaele – to Glastonbury Festival last year.
In February 2014, Murphy also revealed a brief preview of his plan to make every New York subway station have its own music, so that people will later associate each location with a specific sound.
The producer and frontman also shared an album of music he made using data from last year’s US Open tennis tournament.
