2013_the_playhouse_%2123.jpgA group of Gowanus residents is now suing the city to try to stop construction on The Rock and Roll Playhouse, which is the new project from Brooklyn Bowl co-owner Peter Shapiro. The members of We Are Gowanus aren't buying the "kid-friendly" claims of the club, which plans to offer children's music classes during the day and become a 21 and up music venue with a full bar and restaurant at night. Those jungle gyms and tambourine lessons, they say, would just be the "Trojan Horse" allowing a full-blown nightclub to slip past city bureaucracy. [NYDN]
