Opening on Halloween 2017, Elsewhere contains three levels, including a rooftop, and is one of the most vibrant spots in all of Brooklyn. The team behind Elsewhere has been working in the Brooklyn live music scene for over 20 years and have now established themselves as a premier venue for a variety of genres including electronic and hip hop.
Honey’s – IFKYK, but if you don’t yet, just know that mead kinda like sweet n’ funky wine, and Honey’s is one of the few places in NY that makes it well. There’s a great rooftop (that feels like your artist friend’s apartment in Bushwick) where you can often catch local DJs spinning, a small bar inside, and a massive Meadery lit up by a disco ball where you’ll also find cool release parties, community events, and more. If you need some fuel, grab a bite at Bunker Vietnamese just next door. Open: Mon-Thurs 5pm-12am, Fri 5pm-2am, Sat 5pm-4am, closed Sun. 93 Scott Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11237. 2 min walk to Elsewhere.
The Rookery – Great spot for a cocktail and a bite with indoor/outdoor seating. It’s right in the center of Bushwick, off the Jefferson L, and the kitchen serves fire fried chicken sandwiches, among other things, till the wee hours of the night. Perfect spot for a pre- or postgame with your crew. Open: M-Wed 12pm-2am, Thurs-Fri 12pm-4am, Sat 11am-4am, Sun 11am-2am. 425 Troutman St, Brooklyn, NY 11237. 5 min walk to Elsewhere.
