About

The joy of radical music,for all and forever

Crowd dancing in front of DJ in the Hall

Elsewhere is a multi-room music venue, nightclub, and arts space in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Our focus is underground and unbound music, presented with love. Since 2017, Elsewhere’s three stories of dancefloors and stages have been home to expansive sonic offerings for all New Yorkers to explore. We are and will forever remain fiercely independent.

Vibe together, thrive together

In the tradition of our favorite NYC venues throughout history, Elsewhere is for everyone. We believe that the country’s most diverse city deserves spaces dedicated to serving all our communities, and so we create experiences that bring people together. A city that vibes together, thrives together.

Underground and unbound

Elsewhere is a place for uplifting the next generation of artists, and we believe the future of culture knows no genre: here you’ll find rockstars and rappers, metalheads and ravers, vinyl nerds and punks, folk singers, old-school house heads, baile funk crowds, hyperpop producers, and probably everything else.

Soulful nights

Transcendent music reminds us that a better world is possible, and so we try to spread that feeling every night. Elsewhere is a place to discover new artists, meet new friends & lovers, celebrate music, and leave your day behind.

Come as you are

"I’m so grateful for Elsewhere, as both a performer and concertgoer. The staff puts a ton of effort into making every show as safe and enjoyable for everyone as possible. The space is incredibly versatile - it can be warm and intimate for live shows and also a sprawling club for late night adventures. I’ve loved all my experiences performing at Elsewhere, and of course rolling up regularly to catch my friends’ DJ sets - it’s always a great time."

Memorable Nights Halloween

We were barely done with construction when we opened our doors for the first time on Halloween 2017, welcoming the community back after a few years without a home venue, for a costume party and performances from BATTLES, Combo Chimbita, Cakes Da Killa and many others. Now we celebrate our anniversary on Halloween every year.
