What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but what happens in Brooklyn starts global trends that spread like wildfire, at least for beard oil, Jay Z, and remarkable music venue/bowling alley Brooklyn Bowl. Brooklyn Bowl was Ticketfly’s first client (trivia: the first ticket we ever sold was to Lebowski Fest there), so we can’t help but gush over the opening of Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. We’re extremely proud of our good friend and partner Pete Shapiro, the New York nightlife impresario, and excited to power ticketing and digital marketing for Vegas’s newest hot spot:
“Ticketfly has been a key part of the Bowl team and operation, from social media marketing to on sale support. When we had the opportunity to take Brooklyn Bowl to Vegas (with a space three times the NY one and a capacity of 2,000 people) we knew that the only way to sell tickets would be with the best ticketing team in music, Ticketfly.” – Peter Shapiro
Their new venture stays true to its Brooklyn roots, despite the increased opulence and grand size customary in Vegas: three floors and 80,000 square feet with a total of 32 lanes of bowling, a full restaurant, and a 2,000-person-capacity concert venue. According to Brooklyn Magazine, BB Vegas is the largest live music venue in Las Vegas, and one of the largest nightclubs in the country.
Given the circumstances, booking talent hasn’t been a huge challenge. The Vegas Bowl already has a ton of spectacular acts on the calendar, including The Avett Brothers, Elvis Costello and The Roots (that’s right, together!), Cake, Disclosure, Bonobo, Chance the Rapper, Phil Lesh, and Jane’s Addiction – to name a few. This is no surprise considering the original bowl has already witnessed phenomenal acts like Guns N’ Roses, Adele, Elvis Costello, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs – again, just to name a few.
