Run by local promoter Bowery Presents, this Williamsburg outpost is basically a mirror image of similarly sized Bowery Ballroom, one upping its Manhattan counterpart with improved sightlights—including elevated areas on either side of the room—and a bit more breathing room. With booking that ranges from indie-rock bands to hip-hop acts, it's one of the best rooms in New York to see a show.

I haven't been to Williamsburg in quite some time and for good reason: it feels more and more like another city's version of Brooklyn. Every city has one: Chicago's Near West Side, Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward, Austin's South Congress. Williamsburg is a "Place to See" in NYC tourist booklets; as evidenced by the hoards of Europeans clogging the sidewalks. It feels polished. Like a movie set with thematic restaurants and carefully curated shops so you can get bespoke bow ties and hip coffee all under the cover of commissioned graffiti.
But in a place of such intentional coolness The Music Hall of Williamsburg is a live venue that can be grandfathered in as "old NY". There is a basement lounge and two levels for viewing the main stage including staircase style seating on the second floor. All general admission, there isn't a bad view in the house. Music Hall is compact yet not suffocating. There are ample bars and bathroom stalls and the much appreciated self-serve water jug.
Check out their lineup and buy your tickets in advance at Mercury Lounge to avoid ticket fees. Music Hall gets it: they haven't changed their image to match the evolution of Williamsburg.
This former Northsix venue is a great small to mid size venue which attracts a wide array of different bands. Good sound and sight lines make this location a step up from its predecessor that had incredibly low ceilings. A bar is near the main entrance and another bar is located downstairs where the restrooms are as well. Upstairs there is a decent sized floor to dance\stand\mosh. There is also a balcony that wraps around the floor that I was able to sneak up to for Dillinger Escape Plan. Excellent views from this area, if you get a chance. Another bar is on the balcony level as well so no complaining about not being able to get a drink!
