audience feels rather than audience feel ... so C is out

such "found spaces" better than "found spaces".. as such goes back and refers specifically to "storefronts, bars, and even backyards,".. hence, A & B out

between option D & E.. E is easy winner..

The non underlined portion of the question already has "better" so comparison is already implied. Rather is also used for choose between option. Correct usage of Rather will be x rather than Y. Her the correct usage in this example is better served by X than Y.
