Southpaw is a large capacity, 5,000 square foot venue located in Park Slope, Brooklyn. We bring you local, national, international artists and dj's spanning all musical genres.

Carved and created out of a 99 Cent Discount store in the middle of Brooklyn, Southpaw opened its doors in June of 2002 and since then has emerged as one of New York City's premiere venues for concerts and special events.

Southpaw was chosen as one of the top 5 venues in all of New York City by TIME OUT NY. Our famous jukebox (RIP) was also called "jaw-dropping" in Time Out NY's Music Issue.

Southpaw has hosted acts such as Cat Power, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, TV On The Radio, Sam Prekop, Supergrass, Mogwai, Prefuse 73, Clinic, Ted Leo, Radio 4, Sahara Hotnights, The Chameleons, Squarepusher, Unicorns, KRS-One, and a host of others.
