The Knitting Factory finds its latest incarnation in Williamsburg (previous NYC locations include Soho and Tribeca), with a medium-size space divided in two by a huge glass window. There’s a low-lit bar in the front and an even dimmer stage in the back. The sound is great, the bookings even better.

I love Knitting Factory - a bunch of my friends' bands have performed here so it's really fun. There's a big room in the back with the stage and a small bar and it's fun to just dance around.


I don't go to the knitting factory that often, but my experiences there have been quite pleasant. There's a huge front bar area with a pseudo porch (they open the doors so you can sit on a bench sorta). The inside is also quite spacious, and I love that I can just walk right up to the stage. No barriers, no nothin. It's also more of a wider space so that it's somewhat intimate but allows for more view of the stage since people are spaced out horizontally instead of vertically, putting you just a teensy bit closer to the action. And that's where you want to be!
