Union Hall | a new Brooklyn music venue in Park Slope
A brand new venue/bar/restaurant opened in Park Slope. Union Hall shares an owner with Floyd, is connected loosely to the people responsible for music at Magnetic Field, and is located only a few blocks from Southpaw - 702 Union St @ 5th Ave to be exact. They've already hosted a few privatish events and a Siren Festival afterparty that featured record spinning by the bands Stars and Dirty on Purpose. Serena Maneesh stopped by too.
The entire place is over 6000 square feet with two bocce ball courts, food, and a downstairs 100-capacity music/entertainment room. Impressive shows are already showing up on their schedule like comedian Eugene Mirman and friends EVERY SUNDAY.
