The owners of Glasslands are back and ready to reclaim Brooklyn
The owners of former Williamsburg performance and arts space Glasslands have announced plans to open a new venue in Bushwick called Elsewhere. After shutting its doors at 289 Kent Avenue on New Year’s Day in 2015, the music venue now resurfaces under a fresh moniker at 599 Johnson Avenue in nearby Bushwick, also conveniently off the L train. The beloved DIY venue was allegedly booted from its home of nearly a decade amid neighbor Vice Media's office expansion.
In partnership with PopGun Presents, Elsewhere founders Dhruv Chopra, Rami Haykal, and Jake Rosenthal have announced plans for the new $3 million music and arts space located in a 24,000-square-foot repurposed warehouse. The venue will offer up an open rooftop, loft bar, and art gallery in addition to its five main spaces, each designed for varying objectives that include live music and dance, hosted parties, film nights, and more.
Slated to open this fall, Elsewhere will showcase both local and international artists from across a multitude of musical genres.
