Inside a 2,500 square foot loft in Brooklyn, in the year of 2007, the House of Yes in Bushwick was brought to life! It was a labor of love with the mission of offering a creative place for artists and friends.
In time, the dream came to life. After a massive transformation of a former ice warehouse into this fantastic space, The House of Yes was finally opened.
Who they had hanging there? The most creative and inspiring groups of musicians, dancers, artists and creatives of all types. The venue was used for dance and dinner parties, yoga for the fitness & health tribe and even movie screenings for the cinephiles.
Less than an year went by and a huge fire tore the place down, but with priceless help and love of the local community, they restarted this project at Grand Street, East Williamsburg, in an even bigger space.
The project grew, the groups of interesting people expanded and the activities offered had now a wide range. Classes of various modalities were given, people rented the space for birthday parties and brands coveted the spot for their fashion shows.
In 2013, with the ferocious raising rents, they had again to move to a new spot. So, they were taken back to where it all started, in Bushwick!
Today, the space continues hosting and showcasing the most unique, intriguing and peculiar performances.
The parties are some of the best in the whole New York area, with top artists and creatives. The mixture of acrobatics, circus acts, fetish-style vibe and music might help you understand what to expect.
They have the craziest nights in town, but they also offer fantastic children performances and family events. If you’re not sure what to expect, take a look at the image gallery and a few pictures we selected!
Plus, take a look at their fantastic performance at the NYC Price 2017 parade.
House of Yes in Bushwick is surely a place that the entire community benefits from and most definitely enjoys! Keep your eyes opened for their next breathtaking event!
