“Brooklyn Steel is filling a void in the Brooklyn music scene, offering the largest general admission venue in New York’s largest borough,” The Bowery Presents’ John Moore and Jim Glancy said in a statement. “With every venue we open, we aim to create a space where both fans and bands can fully enjoy the experience.”

The building will reflect the industrial look of the neighborhood with a main lobby bar created from scrap metal and a salvaged five-ton steel hook hanging over the main lobby that will feature an original installation from a local artist.
