Bars Dive bars Williamsburg

Once a dance-music hub, this kitschy dive now welcomes buzzworthy bands and their enthusiastic followers. You can roll in early—the lineups tend to kick off around 8pm—but the party really shifts into high gear during the later sets, which finish at 1am. If you happen to get there early, take advantage of the free-booze happy hour from 8 to 9pm when you can get beer and well drinks on the house. 256 Grand St between Driggs Ave and Roebling St (718-599-1000, thetrashbar.com). Times and prices vary.

Tireless drummers help keep revelers pumped till the very end. 81 South 6th St at Berry St (718-387-5389, bembe.us). Mon-Thu 7:30pm-3:30am, Fri-Sun 7pm-4am; free.

Music Williamsburg

Secreted away in the back of The Lovin' Cup Cafe, this small, industrial performance space hosts a slew of rising Kings County rockers. Though it's most common for shows to start around 8pm, several excellent parties kick off around midnight. On the third Saturday of every month, you can catch Colin Rogister and a roster of guests playing ambient pop tracks. 93 N 6th St between Berry St and Wythe Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-302-1180, cameony.com)
