    One of the loudest venues around. Room is so shallow there's nowhere for noise to go. Earplugs available for $1 at will call.

    The $10 tall boy and shot deal at the front bar is the way to go.

    Fun place for concerts but also for a drink at the bar where you can actually watch the crowds dancing inside the show room

    One of the many great smaller venues to catch live acts in Williamsburg. Not just music, but excellent comedy every Sunday night, which was once hosted by Hannibal Buress.

    Great for watching games, especially as a Bay Area sports fan (not a lot of crowds on those game nights). Big screens, tap selection could be better.

    If a band you follow is playing here and you're telling yourself "aw man it's pretty far" GO. It's a great venue. A bar and two bathrooms in the stage area and more down the hall.

    Small sports bar with cheap drinks and a good layout. Grab a table quickly because they'll run out soon. They don't serve food so order something from the pizza spot next door and bring it in.

    How do they have a "B" rating when they don't even serve food? Makes me wonder how dirty the beer is! Yuck!

    The Brooklyn outpost of the national music venue chain often books out-of-the-box acts that the crowd always enjoys.
