Things to do in New York this fall: Nightlife in Williamsburg
Among the biggest things to do in New York this fall is visit the new club opened by the Verboten guys, to debut in Williamsburg in early fall.
Tue Aug 20 2013
Williamsburg, Brooklyn is quickly becoming the epicenter of New York nightlife, thanks to a slew of clubs offering everything from underground artists to big-name house deities. And the opening of a new club by the Verboten crew is one of the biggest things to do in New York this fall.

The big club opening...
With the party-tossing Verboten gang’s eponymous venue on North 11th Street slated to open soon, it’s official: Williamsburg has become New York’s new clubland paradise. With the Fixed, Trouble & Bass and Bespoke posses already signed on as residents, and boldfaced-name DJs Guy Gerber, Carl Craig and Davide Squillace on board as partners—and barring an unexpected switch in music policy to meathead-friendly EDM—this should be the best addition to the late-night landscape since, well, Output (see below). 60 North 11th St between Kent and Wythe Aves, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (verbotennewyork.com). Opening early fall.

Just around the corner from Verboten, Output opened in January and became the nexus of the city’s house and techno scenes almost from the get-go.

- Critics choice
This club is basically a square room with minimal lighting and a bar, and admission rarely much more than $10. But that Hamilton will snare you a night of four-to-the-floor nirvana.
Big fall event: Ryan Elliott, Sept 6 10pm–4am. tbabrooklyn.com
- 395 Wythe Ave, (at South 6th St), 11211
The club itself may not be much, but the array of talent it’s attracted is mind-blowing.

It’s about as raw and ramshackle as a legal venue can get, with the cream of the underground rolling though on a nightly basis.
