Village Voice's Description
Like many new Brooklyn venues these days, the Bell House was birthed out of a '20s warehouse. Naturally, a space this big lends itself to a variety of joyously disparate events (i.e. the Harry Potter Yule Ball, Super Japanese Game Show Melee, Radio Happy Hour) punctuated by a mix of veteran songwriters (recently John Oates) and sizable indie-pop acts (Beach House and such). The Bell House's key decorations are antiquated, sinuous chandeliers and a wood panel branded with a buffalo, both of which are indicative of the venue's tattered, vaguely Western, Prohibition-era aesthetic. Also notable is "Fight Club," a monthly craft-beer-and-cheese-tasting event.
