2,000 Person Capacity Venue Opening in Bushwick (East Williamsburg For People From Manhattan)!

A former steel factory in Colonial Williamsburg at 319 Frost Street is going to become The Brooklyn Classic.

To put this in perspective, Output has a capacity of 450. If this manages to jump through all of the legal hullabaloo that accompanies the creation of a new venue in Gotham, we’re going to see a massive new home for insane parties.
