5. The Bell House

Located in Gowanus, Brooklyn, The Bell House opened in 2008. Before it was the cozy two room music venue it is today, it was a printing press established in the 1920s. The Bell House hosts tons of quirky events like a 90s Prom Halloween party, and a tour of the roots of Dubstep. It provides a more natural feel to the crumbling bricks of Gowanus.
