Don’t expect Brooklyn’s status as New York’s “it” area to be revoked anytime soon. With buzzing nightclubs, quirky date spots, and, of course, more than a few hipster haunts, the borough’s lasting popularity is in the bag. Just in time for your next night out, here are the best areas for nightlife in Brooklyn, New York City.

Williamsburg

You knew this one was coming. In recent years, Brooklyn’s Williamsburg has become an epicenter for New York City’s hipster culture. Locales like oldies-screening cinema-bars, dive cocktail spots, and chill rooftop bars make “alternative” living the norm here.

Red Hook

Park
Self-described cocktail snobs (it’s Brooklyn—we all know one) should head to Red Hook, home to some of the best critically acclaimed bars in the borough. At Time Out- and Serious Eats-endorsed Botanica, produce-focused drinks blend Caribbean and Mediterranean flavors to delicious effect, while nearby bar Fort Defiance sticks to tradition with potent renditions of gin fizzes and mint juleps.

Park Slope is known for its family-friendly atmosphere, a quality which extends (sort of) to the Brooklyn neighborhood’s nightlife scene. Leave the BabyBjörn back home for this one, Park Slopers: the fun at local bars Union Hall and The Dram Shop (think bocce, pool, shuffleboard, and plenty of drinks) was made with grown-ups in mind.
