Huzzah! Back in March, a fire wreaked havoc on the insides of beloved Park Slope music venue and bar Union Hall. This being Brooklyn, where local businesses permanently shutter for problems far less dire than having their insides burned to the point of temporary closure, many may have thought the space done for. But ho, it lives!

The venue will reopen in full (the basement has been open since early May) on Friday, July 21st. “The fire in March gave us an opportunity to do some renovations and everything looks amazing,” Union Hall wrote in an email this afternoon. Expect all new books (the old ones were casualties in the fire) and a few new couches.

In celebration of their grand re-opening, Union Hall will be hosting a no-cover celebration on the 21st with $3 Sixpoints, giveaways and, “other fun surprises.” Doors will open at 1pm, the kitchen will open at 4pm, there’ll be an extended, DJ-ed happy hour from 5 to 8pm, and a ticketed show downstairs. At midnight, the basement will host free karaoke.

Welcome back, Union Hall! So very glad you didn’t turn into condos.
