This wild Bushwick hotspot opened in 2016 and quickly established itself as a reliable way for Brooklyn revelers to wear insane costumes and lose their inhibitions just about every weekend. With exhibitionist parties like “House of Love” and the immersive “Little Cinema” film tributes, along with a panoply of aerialists, magicians and dancers on retainer, House of Yes is constantly inventing new ways to make a night out more than just drinks at the bar. Pro tip: Snag tickets in advance and get there early — the entry line often runs the block.

Absolutely AWFUL New Year's Eve party. Thanks House of Yes for a terrible end to my 2017. I paid $115 for a "ball" with a strict formal dress code and the promise of five rooms to explore, complimentary champagne, and cocktails for purchase. They only, however, had TWO OUT OF FIVE rooms open for the entirety of the first three hours. This is blatant false advertising. It was so over-crowded in those two rooms everyone felt like sardines. I was smushed in between people so intensely I thought my body was going to explode. That complimentary champagne they promised was virtually impossible to acquire because there was no way to traverse your way all the way to the bar; you couldn't move in that place. And not to mention - the cash machines at the bar stopped working, so they couldn't process payments for cocktails, and therefore stopped serving them! This lasted at least half an hour, after which I had already left so don't know how much longer it lasted - possibly all night. Other terrible things: This classy "ball" took place in a disgusting warehouse in the middle of nowhere, with port-o-potty's as the only bathroom option. And they left the DOORS OPEN the whole night despite it being 10 degrees outside, so my toes had basically fallen off by the end of the night in a combination of freezing temperatures and being stepped on repeatedly. The coat check filled up within the first hour so I had to hold/wear my winter coat, scarf, hat, and gloves the entire party - meaning I couldn't even show off the formal dress I was excited to have worn. Just a complete disappointment, this party. Wish this site would let me give zero stars because I got absolutely zero value from this event and left after an hour. This organization has NO idea what they're doing or how to throw a party.


I actually got kicked in the back by female staff for laughs. Simply for the fear of lawsuits this would not happen to you at any other venue. This is a dangerous situation. What if it were security that wanted to do something to you for laughs? This is compounded by a very lame crowd. Avoid this place if you are a music lover. No one knew who was spinning, and it was Carl Craig.

Came here for my sister's birthday - everything from the staff to the drinks to the dancing to the weird was amazing. I never venture out to Brooklyn but this is worth the trip. Fun guaranteed!

The House of Yes is a very cool venue - even the bathrooms are worth checking out. There are a few different rooms, which I imagine are really fun during one of their warehouse parties. I have come to attend one of their interactive movie screenings, which were very cool. The movie plays and characters roam around, a live band plays and live performances overlay the film (think aerial dancers, contortionists, bubble artists...).

I was not surprised to see House of Yes has a 5-star review. What's not to like? Aerialists, dancers and decor make up the biggest themed dance party in New York any night of the week in this massive Brooklyn warehouse. 


Beyond the main dance room, there's an additional dance area (complete with stripper pole) containing one of the bars and also an outdoor space (complete with hot tub and shower) with the other. If that's not enough of an adventure there's also a bit of a BDSM room. Yes, you read that right. 


Each space has a unique sound and offering leading to an explorative, invigorating night. It's the kind of place where you lose all your friends and just dance the night away before reuniting 'by the bathroom next to the aerialists'. That is an actual text I've sent. 


If the above does not sound fun or sounds overwhelming, it's not your spot. 


House of Yes takes nightlife and entertainment to a whole new level. There's nowhere else I'd rather go!


I always feel transported into some magical wonderland when I enter and the time flies so fast... Its a magical oasis in the heart of bushwick


Always different, forever changing, unpretentious, sex-positive, fabulous, and so entertaining; this is the best venue since Paradise Garage.


House of Yes has the best parties and is always on my mind when thinking of where to go in Brooklyn.
