The party never stops in Williamsburg—Brooklyn’s original hipster capital—or rather, its best nightclubs. Dance, drink and enjoy a happy hour taco at a pioneering gay bar, a globally inspired dance spot, and more nightclubs in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
This Williamsburg mainstay remains among the area’s best dance party venues. For more than a decade, Metropolitan has hosted the “longest-running gay party in Brooklyn” on second and fourth Fridays (cover-free biweekly), plus deejayed events all month long.
New York nightlife names Mehmet “Memo” Erkaya and Gio Gulez are the duo behind this bar-cum-club dedicated to underground techno and house music. TBA Brooklyn, which made its triumphant return in spring 2015 after being shut down the year before, is a scene favorite thanks to its lineups featuring both local and global DJs.
The New York City loft rave vibe lives on at Schimanski. Multicolored lights, techno tunes, and a floor packed with sweaty dancers are all accounted for at this music-fan favorite known to put on four-hour DJ sets.
