Combining a storied tradition with an array of young, progressive minds, Brooklyn art and culture provides plenty to see, do and explore. Art centers, movie theatres, music venues and museums are all great starting points to exploring this vast scene. To offer a little jumpstart, here are some of our favorite art and culture destinations near NU Hotel.
Located in the historic Tobacco Warehouse in Brooklyn Bridge Park, St. Ann’s Warehouse is one of Brooklyn’s premier avant-garde theaters. The warehouse’s vast open layout creates the opportunity for unique performances, as the 25,000-square-foot event space can be modified as needed to best support individual performances. Renowned international musicians, critically-acclaimed innovative theater and large-scale festivals have all been hosted here.
The Invisible Dog Art Center is one of Brooklyn’s most well-rounded and prolific proprietors of creativity. With new art continuously cycling in and out, the Invisible Dog is always stocked with fresh creations and new happenings. Head over and peruse the space’s various exhibitions, pop-up shops and events during your stay at NU Hotel.
Don’t forget to include Nitehawk Cinema on your Brooklyn art and culture itinerary. Unlike most movie theaters, while watching a film at Nitehawk you can order from a full menu of delicious entrees, unique craft beers, and wines. Head over to Nitehawk to enjoy Hollywood’s latest cinematic achievements while indulging in one of the theater’s latest food specials.
