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

    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.

    Hands down the best comedy venue in Brooklyn. Mixed seating, get there early.

    The Kentucky Bourbon Barrel on tap is delicious (and has a high abv so be careful)! :)
    Alisha Sedor · September 11, 2014
  • Bobby H.
    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.

    Great intimate music venue. Good beer selection
    Tiffany Langston · August 21, 2014

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

  • Mike L.
    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.

    Feels like Brooklyn Bowl. But better.

    Bottles of Kaliber, which get poured into the same plastic cups as everything else, concealing your sober shame. #nonalcoholic

  • TK ..
    A wonderful venue for live music in an odd corner of Bklyn. The hall's not so big wherever you stand, there's a good view. Staff: kind & mellow, beer menu: interesting, plus: there's a photo booth!

  • Ted A.
    Pretty stupid check in process for Night Vale event. No order or anyone to guide you to right place. Ticket taker is pretty rude and unhelpful.

    Coat check: Waste of time. Bartenders: not enough. Location: mildly annoying. People: better than the city.

    If you are going here to a seated show bring your own cushions. You won't be sorry.
    Harold Kramer · October 30, 2013
  • The Brew Noob
    Come for the shows/concerts/cookoffs, stay for the selection of craft beers! It's not the largest set of drafts in town, but they keep a variety of styles and usually a couple local brews.
    The Brew Noob · August 30, 2013
  • Chris F.
    Their ability to process tickets and get people into the show has gotten pretty abysmal over the last year - seems to consistently take at least an hour just to stamp hands and get a crowd in. :(
