The Opportunity

Playing the Branded Saloon is a wonderful opportunity to organically build your fan base in Brooklyn and even begin to eventually create your own nights with other bands and musicians. The Branded Saloon books acts nightly and are always searching for new and exciting bands. 

We offer an old western saloon environment complete with antique trappings- foot-powered piano, wagon wheel chandeliers, & a tiger oak bar from the West. Dubbed a "straight-friendly gay bar" by Time Out magazine in 2012, Branded Saloon prides itself on being as diverse as the neighborhood we are located in.
