Poll Clubs 2020: Elsewhere

Location: Brooklyn, New York, USA
Capacity: 1,400


Elsewhere has emerged a certified year-round hot spot. The 24,000-square-foot Bushwick venue opened in late 2017, and debuted it’s art-forward rooftop —  where artists like Robert Hood, Soul Clap and Justin Martin dish out beats to the happy-hour crowd — the following summer.

After dark, the party moves inside to the Main Hall, which recently hosted acts like The Knocks, Mat Zo, A-Trak and Mija (live). The dark and intimate Zone 1 room is primed for more experimental tastes, and on select nights the upstairs gallery is transformed into a third hangout with easy access to a full bar and gender-neutral bathrooms, one of Elsewhere’s inclusive offerings.

Brooklyn’s underground scenesters have found their new home at Elsewhere. The tall ceilings and winding staircases of the 24,000-square-foot, former furniture assembly warehouse contribute to the seamless navigation of this fledgeling hotspot, which opened in Bushwick during October of 2017. A true club for all seasons, Elsewhere’s rooftop features rotating art installations, frozen drinks and sunset DJ sessions during warmer months. The Main Hall (which has welcomed talents like ZHU, Magda, Nastia and Mike Servito) boasts a large, multi-tier dancefloor, but for Elsewhere loyals, the intimate ‘Zone One’ is the final destination for experimental sounds. “The first year is really about listening to your crowd and continually evolving the space alongside your community as it grows,” says co-owner, Jake Rosenthal. Long may that continue.
