Jim Carden and Andy Templar, the team behind Union Hall, were hardly the first to carve a music venue from a Brooklyn warehouse — but few have done so as expertly. Converted from a 1920s printing press, their ambitious Bell House brings a sizable performance space with a decidedly Adirondack feel to crumbling-brick Gowanus. Chandeliers dangle from the 25-foot arched wooden ceilings, while a buffalo silhouette looms over the stage, which hosts a variety of bands and comedy acts. An impressive auxiliary bar, backed by an enormous Hudson River School oil, means you don’t have to leave the music for another pint of Allagash White. But the Bell House’s intelligent design emerges most clearly in the swanky, low-lit front lounge — formal parlor meets exposed-brick Brooklyn, with bistro tables, generous armchairs, and inviting nooks for cozying up with cocktails or beers on tap, a welcome respite from the eager crowds a room away.
