Experience Brooklyn Nightlife at House of Yes
House of Yes is a vibrant nightclub in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York. Artists Kae Burke and Anya Sapozhnikova, and partners Justin Ahiyon and Ilan Telmont launched the House of Yes nightclub in 2015.
House of Yes was founded in 2007 by two of the producers behind Lady Circus, Kae Burke, and Anya Sapozhnikova. They ran a circus theater and creative event space in East Williamsburg Brooklyn called the House of Yes, hosting aerial classes, creative events, and circus theatre, from July 2008 to August 2013. In April 2007, the first House of Yes came into being in a 2,500-square-foot second-floor loft located at 19-49 Troutman Street. On 22 April 2008, a fire took place and forced evacuation. House of Yes had found a dilapidated former ice-house at East Williamsburg off the Grand Street L train in June 2008, less than 2 months after the fire.
House of Yes was identified by 10best.com as #1 thing to do in Brooklyn in 2016. BuzzFeed ranked House of Yes as # 4 for its “Dazzling Acrobatics” list of “18 Amazing Things In NYC That Will Bring Your Friends the FOMO”. In 2018, Time Out magazine ranked House of Yes the # 2 thing to do in the world. Earlier that year, DJ Mag identified House of Yes as North America’s best venue in the Northeast region. Thrillist called it one of NYC ‘s best dance parties, and for the “poor design enthusiast.”
The majority of the parties on the House of Yes are held on Friday and Saturday and it is inspired by a theme, and they encourage guests to dress up in creative outfits and costumes. Dress to voice it! Visitors do their best to suit the night’s theme. The big dance parties are on Fridays and Saturdays because they have burlesque and cabaret performances, poetry evenings, and even some sort of hard-to-explain activities like Foreplay, a series of “emotionally and physically intimate acts” where the boundaries between artist and audience overlap.
