Biography View


Brooklyn Bowl, ranked the #1 busiest club in NYC and #7 busiest club in the world in 2017 (Pollstar), is the ultimate night out, with its groundbreaking integration of premiere music, 16 lanes of bowling, a bar featuring locally crafted beers, and food by the acclaimed Blue Ribbon restaurant group. Located in the beautiful, 19th-century Hecla Iron Works building, the venue -- aka "rock and roll heaven" (Village Voice) -- boasts a sound system and amenities that "no other local rock club can offer" (The New York Times).

Wearing its homegrown values on its sleeve, Brooklyn Bowl is as committed to locally made products -- serving award-winning beer from the adjacent Brooklyn Brewery -- as it is to environmental sustainability -- it's the first L.E.E.D.-certified bowling alley in the world and serves paper straws. And the food? "Epic," says Eater. In other words, Brooklyn Bowl's unprecedented combination of top-flight music, bowling, beer and food is "like nailing a spare on a four-ten split" (The New Yorker).

Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia is a 900 capacity multi-floor version of its sister venue in Brooklyn, opened in November 2021 in the up-and-coming Fishtown neighborhood.

In July 2015, Shapiro created Fare Thee Well, Celebrating 50 Years of the Grateful Dead.

(Rolling Stone)”

He also created Jazz & Colors, an experiential music event held in such iconic locations as New York City’s Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, along with Chicago’s Field Museum.

He serves as publisher of Relix Media Group overseeing the iconic print publication Relix Magazine, the highly trafficked music website and digital ad agency, Hear & There. Billboard acknowledged the collective success of his endeavors by naming him to their Power 100 lists of 2015 and 2016.
