We’re building a movement for a more progressive and uplifting cultureby spreading the joy of radical music, for all and forever
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.
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.
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
Cutting our teeth
The team behind Elsewhere has deep roots in the Brooklyn music community, stretching back to our first venue Glasslands in Williamsburg - an early-2000’s first-thought-best-thought experiment in art & partying. Our staff is made up of culture lifers who have formed the fabric of the NYC music community for decades.
Since opening on Halloween in 2017, we’ve hosted thousands of artists, presented over 20,000 hours of live music, and staged over 600 events each year.
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.
Our venue is intended to be a haven for music, art, expression, and free play – and we need your help to keep it that way. Most importantly, we stand with all those who demand complete freedom from hatred, harassment, and discrimination in our city’s venues and nightclubs. Let’s work together to keep each other safe:
