Park Slope bar, restaurant, and venue Union Hall has been closed since the fire that broke out there in March, and shows have been moving to other venues. At least a few of the shows that were moved to the nearby Bell House have doubled as benefits for Union Hall.

Finally, there's some good news. Union Hall is still in progress of opening the upstairs and the kitchen is still closed, but they're now able to host some shows in the basement, with entry through the patio gate. The Union Hall Basement Series begins May 15, and they're promising music, comedy and drinks. Here's their full statement:

Meanwhile, check the Union Hall calendar for some shows that have been moved, like Church of the Infinite You w/ Minister Jean Grae on May 14, now happening at The Bell House.

UPDATE: Mike Birbiglia announced a show in Union Hall's basement on Monday, May 29 and tickets are on sale now.
