If you want to dance on a rooftop while you drink out of a small plastic cup and watch the sunset in Bushwick, Elsewhere is where you should go. This is a big music venue in a warehouse with a few separate spaces, including a large rooftop where you can hang out and dance. Different DJs perform indoors and outdoors most nights (except Monday, when this place is closed), and you can buy tickets either online or at the door. There’s no cover Tues-Thurs, however, and Tuesdays are typically a little more mellow with events like film screenings and drawing parties. But if you’re coming here, it’s probably for a weekend dance party on the rooftop - and you should be sure to get in line early to avoid crowds.
