Drom

While Times Square is the crossroads of the world, our city's crossroads for world music is Drom, located in the East Village. A visit to Drom is an integrative experience presented through the multicultural lens of their globally astute staff. It combines music, food, drink and a sophisticated yet comfortably spacious setting for an unmatched evening. As co-owner and manager Serdar Ilhan says, “Drom is a warm and inviting venue with its earthy colors, comfortable seating, high ceiling and friendly team.”

Going to Drom is like taking a journey to the most exotic places on earth and, as Ilhan explains, that is where the club's moniker comes from, -It comes from the word “dromus - road”. Drom is “a journey” in the Gypsy language like in the movie Latcho Drom - Safe Journey. Open less than a year, its patrons have thus far been treated to many unique musical journeys. This is in part due to the backgrounds and experiences of the owners. As Ilhan relates, “I have been in the production and restaurant business for a long time. I always wanted to have a place like Drom to showcase world music. After selling my last place, Maia Meyhane [7th and B], my friends Nachi and Numan liked the idea and wanted to be partners with me. We are three partners, two of us Turkish and the other one Indian. I studied art and I am a graphic designer and producer. My partners are from the finance sector. I like jazz and world music and the last five to six years I have been into Gypsy music a lot!”
