Sunday Best is back where it belongs!

The popular afternoon dance party — which built a following at Bklyn Yard along the banks of the Gowanus Canal before a one-year hiatus in Bushwick — will return on May 29 to the same lot off Carroll Street.

And the same team — Justin Carter, Eamon Harkin and Doug Singer — is working the turntables.

“If you never made it down, let us count the ways you’re going to love it,” said Carter. “First, kids and dogs — you can bring them. We love them, and we don’t get to see enough of them on Saturday nights.”

Carter, Harkin and Singer — who DJ under the name “Mister Saturday Night” — brought weekend dance parties to Gowanus three years ago, but the party closed down when its organizers had trouble securing a liquor license for the space, forcing a move to Brooklyn Fireproof East.

But this time it’s here to stay — and there’ll even be a few food vendors from the Brooklyn Flea, such as the smoked meat geniuses from Mile End and boozesmiths from Botanica.

Sunday Best (400 Carroll St. at Bond Street in Gowanus), beginning May 29, 3–9 pm. Tickets, $12 with RSVP to [email protected].
