Wait—you still haven’t been to Verboten yet? You really should pay a visit to the Williamsburg club, which opened a few weeks back with a visit from Damian Lazarus and his Crosstown Rebels compatriots—including Francesca Lombardo, Fur Coat, Ida Engberg and Pattern Drama—as part of the label’s Rebel Rave tour. The club has been going from strength to strength ever since—we’d go so far as to say that it’s been the most successful opening of a good-size club since its friendly competition around the corner, Output, opened up around a year earlier. Great DJs, fab sound, a warehousey vibe and a fun crowd—what more do you want? But if you need a bit more convincing, check out these shots from the club’s opening night.
