James Murphy’s Brooklyn Business Empire Is Growing
The LCD Soundsystem frontman is adding an eatery next to his existing wine bar.
LCD Soundsystem/DFA Records honcho James Murphy has been in the wine game for years now. Launching his Brooklyn-based wine bar the Four Horsemen back in 2015, Murphy and his business cohorts (who include his wife, Christina Topsøe) have long been among the early proponents of the current “orange wine” craze. Yup—not only does he know all the cool bands, he’s also ahead of the game in the dizzying world of vino.
Murphy is bringing that obsessive eye to a brand new business venture, as Eater NY reveals that he’s set to take over the location next door to Four Horsemen. The space was formerly known as speakeasy bar Larry Lawrence, which shuttered last summer, while the Four Horsemen got a big boost in stature when it was featured in an episode of Aziz Ansari’s Netflix show, Master of None.
While there’s no indication whether the new spot’s name is an homage to the classic Bob Seger song, what we do know is that Night Moves plans to deliver breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with operating hours of 10 a.m. to 4 a.m. Kind of late for breakfast, but I guess that’s just how Williamsburg rolls. The proposed lunch menu would boast turnip cakes, grilled chicken wings, and a matcha custard-filled doughnut.
