The last couple years have seen a drastic change in the NYC club scene, with many promoters and club-goers choosing to throw their shindigs in the edgier parts of Brooklyn over the glam-packed glitz of Manhattan. A good chunk of the best parties in NYC go down in Williamsburg, from indie music venues to bangin' dance clubs and warehouses. See local bands and touring indie darlings at Baby's All Right, Music Hall of Williamsburg or the Knitting Factory. Visit Output and experience the perfection of its Funktion-One sound system, or drop by TBA Brooklyn for its daily happy hours and strong, local lineups. Start (or end) your night at one of the neighborhood’s many hip watering holes.
