This compact concert hall is pretty bare-bones. Right around the corner from the opulent BAM conglomerate, the Brooklyn Masonic Temple looks just as grand—from the outside. The hall itself, rather sparse in decor, is a viable option for shows nonetheless, hosting a range of indie bands in the two-story venue. The ground floor is usually standing room while the balconies feature original if less-than-comfy seating. But the location in ever-up-and-coming Fort Greene makes all the difference. Exceedingly hip restaurants and bars are close by and plenty, even as the neighborhood retains a quiet, residential feel. Take the C from Manhattan, or the more accessible G from Brooklyn or Queens.
The Brooklyn Masonic Temple is regarded as one of the most outstanding structures in the United States. The cornerstone to this beautiful edifice was laid in 1907 as an exact replica of King Solomon’s Temple. Only two other Temples of its kind have been erected in the world. One in Colorado and the other in Egypt. It cost four million dollars to complete this art of monumental status. Marble staircases along with Masonic murals can be found throughout the building.
