A spacious venue in Bushwick that features aerial performances, burlesque, live music, circus, theater, and cabaret performances in the former home of an ice warehouse. They also serve Moroccan & Middle Eastern food until 11pm most nights at their adjacent cafe Queen of Falafel. We recommend the Middle Eastern Plate (hummus, falafel, tahini, arabic salad, roasted eggplant & labne) which is a bargain at $12. Still, House of Yes is more about its performances and dance parties so be sure to check their calendar before arriving. On weekends they serve brunch from 11am-4pm.
Part Burning Man, part burlesque, and totally glitter-queer, this gorgeous, roomy bar combines great cocktails with a roomy performance venue. The Bushwick hot spot offers a dazzling array of events, from sweaty dance parties, bingo, bottomless brunch, and even an amateur burlesque night. Oh, yeah, and there’s a delicious Middle Eastern café, too.
This wild Bushwick spot opened in 2016 and quickly established itself as a reliable way for Brooklyn revelers to wear insane costumes and lose their inhibitions just about every weekend. With exhibitionist parties like “House of Love” and the immersive “Little Cinema” film tributes, along with a panoply of aerialists, magicians and dancers on retainer, House of Yes is constantly inventing new ways to make a night out more than just drinks at the bar.
