    Balcony up top is cool. Awesome lights
    Ariel Seltzer · December 1, 2014

    Too bad this place is closing. Great space for claustrophobic shows.

    Live music. Bands before they get famous and charge $70 for tickets.

  • Gothamist
    Glasslands hosts everyone from local stars to up-and-comers to that dude who serenaded you at the G stop yesterday, along with some bigger names; recent shows include the likes of Light Asylum & LE1F. Read more

  • Jonathan S.
    Sit up on the balcony if your legs are tired from watching each of the five million bands they booked.

  • Staff Picks
    The infamous Robyn-themed dance party hits Glasslands. This Party Is Killing You celebrates Sweden's most bad-ass pop star, Robyn, by promising a night of all-pop everything. Fri, 6/27, 11:30pm. $5. Read more

  • Rebecca B.
    Best venue in NY. Consistently book talented up and coming acts. Unpretentious, casual, not a bad seat in the house. Cash only bar, solid selection of booze and beer.
    Rebecca Bea · May 23, 2014
  • Gordon M.
    Very small, intimate venue with indie lineups. Loud and fun on the floor. Great view of the stage from the balcony.
    Gordon Mei · May 21, 2014
  • Samantha H.
    They throw Robyn dance parties. This place gets me.
    Samantha Henderson · April 22, 2014
  • Cooper S.
    If it's a chill show, it's highly likely people on the balcony will remain sitting for the entire show. Arrive early and you might even snag the highly coveted couch
    Cooper Smith · April 21, 2014
  • The Infinite Zoo
    We miss the clouds on the ceiling :( Still a great place to see bands up close that you normally wouldn't. Cheap drinks, fun times.

    Dance Cartel hosts the best parties here
    Trish R. · April 18, 2014
  • SPIN
    Besides possibly being Brooklyn's best small venue, its also the loudest. They sell earplugs at the bar for $2. Cash only!
    SPIN · October 15, 2013
  • Ray L.
    Apart from its like-kind neighbor (285 Kent), the best place in Brooklyn for an intimate show with great bands. Grab a cheap tallboy at the bar and \m/

  • Compass
    A South Williamsburg staple since 2006, Glasslands is a converted warehouse where partiers enjoy live music and a photobooth.

  • Daguito R.
    New indie rock bands!

    After remodel, the toilets are still a travesty of modern sanitation, only less so. If you're a female, just pee in the gutter, you'll feel cleaner.

    so many good shows at this venue. always great lineups.

  • Chelsea Mae H.
    Newly renovated bathrooms! If you never used the old ones, you never lived. You also probably never contracted HIV.
    Chelsea Mae Hassman · March 21, 2013
  • Lauren I.
    Awesome venue, but the bathroom is terrifying. Unisex, small, dirty and crowded. Make sure you're ok to tear yourself away from the music and have some awkward encounters before you venture in.

  • FUDK
    The floor is sticky. Your hands are cleaner if you don't touch the sink.
    FUDK · January 19, 2013
  • Luciano T.
    One of my favorite places to go check new bands. Check their site before going, as some events require a ticket and get sold out (specially on Fridays)
    Luciano Tsiros · December 27, 2012
  • Liza D.
    upstairs is really cool during a crowded show.

  • Digital Tour Bus
    "Another smelly music venue in the heart of PBR city. It's a cool place with good views of the stage from all around. A trip to the photo booth after midnight is mandatory." -New Cassettes
    Digital Tour Bus · October 31, 2012
  • Cultivora
    The best views in the house are from a small section upstairs.
    Cultivora · October 12, 2012
  • Ben G.
    Good stuff
    Ben Gold · September 30, 2012
  • Concert Ticket Agency
    Now that 285 next door is also booking indie bands, some say this venue has mellowed a bit. We say the more, the merrier. Definitely worth going out of your way for. Loud music/Cheap beers/friendly
    Concert Ticket Agency · September 21, 2012
  • CMJ
    Glasslands continues to thrive despite looming condos sprouting up around the space. "Cosy" doesn't even begin to describe this venue, where the decor is glorious and ever-changing.
    CMJ · August 29, 2012
  • Jessica E.
    Great spot to see indie rock and new bands
    Jessica Elias · August 11, 2012
  • Steve R.
    If you arrive late, head upstairs. The sound is fantastic and the rail has one of the best viewing spots in the city.
    Steve Ritter · July 19, 2012

    Worst bouncer ever

  • Vevo
    An anything goes club; home to after parties and some of the hottest secret shows in the city.

  • Casie A.
    Look up. The pink clouds are straight out of Katy Perry's teenage dream. Also, don't mention Katy Perry whilst inside.
    Casie Attardi · May 15, 2012
  • Kenan A.
    The upstairs balcony banister is a good place to stash your coats...
    Kenan Ali · May 13, 2012
  • Jesper D.
    Don't see bad bands. Don't let dumb, drunk NYU kids ruin the show for you.
    Jesper Dahl · April 27, 2012

    Great venue needs dark beer

    “It's on a stretch of Kent Avenue that doesn’t see much traffic & is relatively unmarked, so look for a smokers in front of a tagged wall.” More at
    Party Earth · April 5, 2012
  • Peter
    Probably the best venue in all of new york
    Peter · March 12, 2012
  • Tiffany S.
    the makeshift space seems like it's gonna fall over at any second but so far no injuries... oh and seeing bands in this small space is tops.
    Tiffany Serra · March 8, 2012
  • Brendan J.
    Dude, you've finally, found the perfect venue to perform your dance quintet–you know, your cycle– and well I’d love to come and give you notes.
    Brendan Jordan · March 7, 2012
  • exfm
    If you're seeing shows here then you're probably catching the next big band right before they blow up. Popgun Booking does an amazing job with this space. A must for indie music lovers!
    exfm · February 14, 2012
  • Nao M.
    A secret music box in Williamsburg. The small stage, chill crowd, and great bookings are just a few reasons why this is one of my top venues. Saw SBTRKT, shigeto, BBF, fujiya&miyagi here!
    Nao Miz · January 20, 2012
  • Daniel B.
    I can't believe this place is legal, but I'm glad it apparently is.
    Daniel Bremmer · January 15, 2012
  • Ear Candy Go: Music
    Even if you haven't heard of the band chances are they're going to be good. Head upstairs for a good view and take a peak at the wall of setlists in the back. An ECG fave. Read more

    The best spot to discover the next band of the moment has an amazing track record for booking hyped indie-rock acts and the DIY decor gives every show the air of a stumbled-upon loft party. Read more

    Glassland Gallery's recent renovation has turned it from a wild DIY space to a wild official venue. A must see for an indie music fans.

    EDIT: there is an ATM and they added more bathrooms.
    Laura Wynn · March 25, 2011
    There's nothing fashionable about being late to the party at this BK art space and music venue. Shows typically end by 1am, so start your night here, then head to Cameo for an all-out dance party.
    RCRD LBL · February 28, 2011

    New additional to Glasslands. An ATM!!!!

    Just saw the Suuns? Very cool. However, they wouldn't let my friend in without id. But she just sat outside and listened-it was loud enough!

    Tons of great bands play here. I just wish it wasn't so far from the train.

  • Energy F.
    They tale credit cards, $10 minimum. Beware the avant garde music!
    Energy Fiend · July 25, 2010
  • Christine B.
    They need to install some AC here. Everyone including the bands look like they are going to pass out. Also, watch out for the pigs, they like to circle this block and harass you for standing outside.
    Christine Be · July 10, 2010
  • Lily M.
    Such a great off-the-radar venue that it's not really off the radar anymore. Don't miss the Soul Clap Dance Off whenever they host. Insanely good times!
    Lily M · April 25, 2010
  • Joshua T.
    Stop by Glasslands on Tuesday nights for Todd Pendu's "Horror Scores for the Dance Floor." Double fist some free absinthe and get lost in the fog. Read more

  • Dan P.
    Great vibe, reasonably unpretentious, and decent live music. Hipstertrash for certain, but fun none-the-less. But: it's a bit of a hike from the train, so bring cash as there's no ATM. Read more
