Since opening in October of 2000, Union Pool has become a cornerstone of Brooklyn nightlife. Union Pool features three separate bars, a beautiful 150 person capacity venue, pinball and a REAL photo booth. Our spacious patio is home to the El Diablo Taco Truck, which is open year-round and all night.

Resident DJs provide a wide variety of music every night. Every Monday night, the Reverend Vince Anderson and The Love Choir perform in the venue starting at 10pm (no cover). Be sure to check our social media for the latest news about Afternoon Hang, our ongoing free Sunday concert series as well as our long-running free Saturday concert series Summer Thunder. Feel free to peruse our Archives to get a small sample of the many incredible bands and events that we have hosted over the last sixteen years.

We do not have pool tables or swimming pools. We do not take table reservations.
