As The Silent Barn heads towards a possible reopening, we've been
trying to determine the best way to operate as a potentially rapidly
expanding collective that would be necessary to run a new incarnation of
The Silent Barn.

Silent Barn members Eli Dvorkin and Jordan Michael Amc are focusing on drafting these guidelines and work practices and Victoria Sobel recently suggested the Valve handbook as a helpful starting point for picking and choosing guidelines and explanations.

In our down time our small group of Chefs has been working hard in The Kitchen,
but as we looking to make major expansions in out operation if anyone
else has suggestions of models to look at for larger collectives that
would be awesome!
The Silent Barn is very close to signing a lease on a very large and
exciting property in Bushwick! We are in the process of looking for
professional advice on a build out estimate so we can adequately
negotiate a lease and acquire the proper funding for the project.
We specifically need professional advice on:
Fire suppression (egress)
Bar / Kitchen / Food Licenses
Beer / Wine / Liquor license
If you feel like you can give a professional opinion and/or estimate
on any of the following in the next few days we are trying to figure
these things out ASAP and would be more than happy to show you the space
whenever is convenient for you.
Please let us know! We are very excited about this space! In order to
move forward on this property we are going to need a lot of help as it
requires some work, but we think the space will be worth the wait! It
really is amazing...
