House of Yes in 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
House of Yes

Dear House of Yes patrons, party goers, performers, students and friends,

Five years ago, we signed a lease on decrepit building in the depths of East Williamsburg, and turned it into a castle of creative forces, an incubator for ideas and for many... a place to call home.

This week, we learned that we were unable to renew our lease at 342 Maujer Street. While we were initially shocked and saddened by this news, we have now come to realize that this is the perfect opportunity to take things to the next level.

We are looking to create North Brooklyn's first proper theater, a versatile event venue and an aerial training facility. We will be a more polished, professional, and larger House of Yes.

5 years ago we embarked on this project with extremely limited resources and know how. Now we head into the future with incredible potential. We stand ready and eager, backed by a community of thousands, with a whole lot of experience under our belts.

These past five years in this space has generated more joy than some see in an entire lifetime. We are forever grateful for every second anyone has ever spent at House of Yes- Every audience member. Every party goer. Every performer. Every aerialist. Every person reading this. Every person who made the House of Yes a thriving hive of art, energy, performance and family.

The House of Yes was never a building- it was always a community of creatives, fueled by a desire to work, make and share their gifts with New York City and the world.


the House of Yes Crew.

The gentrifiers are being gentrified.

Wow, even deep in the ghetto venues aren't safe anymore.

I must say, you've got one of the best blogs I've seen in a long time. What I wouldn't give to be able to create a blog that's as interesting as this.

This is creative. And it’s a good way to reach out to those that you have admired but maybe haven’t told them enough. Builds relationships and trust.
these sound so good! Such a cute idea!

I heard that House of Yes had a secret room in the basement. Can anyone confirm?

^ Yes... It was a secret hummus kitchen. They used to make some real ROBUST platters down there. Sorry to see this place close.

Just not the same when they tour without Anderson. Just a tribute band. He's the best.
