Music Hall of Williamsburg

When, in 2007, the local promoter Bowery Presents found itself in need of a Williamsburg outpost, it gave the former Northsix a face-lift and took over the bookings. This is basically a Bowery Ballroom in Brooklyn, and hipsters flock here to get their indie fix. Shows from family-friendly performers are rare but are booked on occasion.

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!
