The PERALTA project, Apt.78 and Cerveza Presidente created the "Uptown Colmado": A Dominican affair commemorating the colmado, a place for congregating, drinking, dancing and most importantly, groceries. The colmado, the predeccesor to the bodega – that dots corners all over The Dominican Republic, is making its Uptown debut.
The installation was previewed on June 3rd 2018 at La Marina in Washington Heights. The event brought home warmth, jovial feel and Dominican-ness of a colmado to New York. Just like in a Colmado, folks were able to dance , eat, socialize and enjoy an ice cold Presidente, Tremenda Dominicanidad.
On October 6th The Uptown Colmado made its debut in Wyndwood, Miami for the “Colmado 305 ”
