    A good place to see a niche live show and grab a good drink or some interesting food.

    After nearly a decade open, still haven't figured out a good door policy to let people drink at the bar while waiting to get in.

    So many great events - I've been here for 2 Dope Queens, Secret Science Club, Spice World Sing Along, and more. Good selection of beers, and good views of he stage from just about anywhere in the room

    Shows, podcast tapings and dance parties here are so fun. The sound is great! My advice: bring $3 cash so you can use the photo booth :)

    Great venue for a concert or then Taping of NPR's Ask Me Another. The main room is huge and there are no columns in the middle of the room, so there really are no bad views.

    Great place to see a show or hear some good music. Get there early or be happy standing. Good beer choices plus wine and drinks

    Poorly managed door/entrance for shows. Two separate occasions, two different disasters with ticket handling, communication, and host/hostesses at door.

    I've caught a few shows here and like the space. Lots of great comedy. Good beer on tap. Make sure to show up a little early and grab a good seat!

    It's a nice party place. A bit out of the city centre but w/ F & G you can be there in half an hour.

    Nice place for an event. Cookie takedown was good. No egg nog like was advertised. Very disappointed.

    The photobooth's always broken but the giant space is great for a concert or dance party.

    The Kentucky Bourbon Barrel on tap is delicious (and has a high abv so be careful)! :)

    Hands down my favorite venue in Brooklyn. Whether it's a dance party, a comedy show or a touring artist, the Bell House is the best. Drink cans of Sofia and feel fancy.

    Watch NPR's trivia show Ask Me Another over beers for a raucous good time. Try not to hang from the chandeliers.

    Best to arrive at comedy shows here early. Seating very limited. Tho, probably shouldn't tell you that. It's gonna make me have to get here earlier. Know what? Forget I said anything. Plenty seating.
