    Cool hipster spot a little bit for everyone. Huge inside bar with a place for a band which they do. Great prices at the bar, unisex bathroom. There is an outside patio with a taco truck that is yummy

    Prepare to dance the night away at this Williamsburg staple. Drinks are reasonably priced; a DJ rocks the inside, while the taco stand and picnic benches out back offer a repose. - Green Guide Editor

    Check out the Wednesday night party MISSTER with one of the best (if not the best) DJs in Brooklyn, Amber Valentine. Her crunk 90's trill DJ set will be sure to keep you coming back every Wed!

    On Sunday nights, the wild dance bar transforms into a quaint jazz place full of life. The band that plays is truly not to be missed and they're incredible entertainers!

    Try stopping by fairly late on a weeknight to see if something fun is happening – a secret show, a cool DJ set. This place is a must for anyone in love with Williamsburg. Read more

    One of the better bars in Williamsburg to check out. They have a cover charge usually which sucks but the music is on point. Also they have food in the back... aka drunk food on demand!

    Really chill & lovely venue in Williamsburg. Dance to an eclectic DJ set or stay in the backyard and meet new people in their 20s to 30s. Not the night of your life but definitely worth the $5 cover.

    If it's late, and you're still up, and you wanna dance but can deal with the drunk people-this is your place! Good music, the margarita is surprisingly good!

    The food in the back was delicious. Bacon on a stick. Hot dogs. Grilled cheese. And the drinks are pretty affordable. AND THE MUSIC WAS FANTASTIC!

    It's everything people say it is - can be a really fun time & can also feel like an absolute meat market. Take it for what it is. Covers change week to week.

    Perfect mix of music and epic munchies, I will be back. Bacon on a stick is way too fancy, much happier with my corn on the cob

    Great for happy hour 5-10 M-F. New taco truck in the back makes great carnitas nachos. Get a blueberry lemonade and enjoy.

    Come with friends, don't pay a huge entry fee, get a real long drink and date to smoke on the patio outside. Perfect old-school music 👌🏽

    I come here to dance all night. You won't realize it's 4am until they knock up the lights at 3:50a. I enjoy how crowded it is - easy to get lost in the crowd.

    The roomy back yard is also home to Landhaus, maker of one of my favorite cheeseburgers and a delicious maple bacon on a stick

    There's a new dance party at The Woods every Monday called VVYNL hosted by the band Lexelle. DJS and live bands every week, showcasing the latest in the NYC electro-synthpop music scene.

    Affordable drinks, live bands, and groove-conscious DJ's draw an eclectic twentysomething crowd of North Brooklynites to The Woods.

    Fun dancing and a night outdoor space. Like a slightly more remote and smaller version of Union Pool. All the same people frequent both.

    Great pickle back shots. Wait, all pickle back shots are great. If it's not too busy, play some shuffleboard in the back.

    If you have to be here, go to the bar in the back across the patio and countdown the minutes till it's socially acceptable to leave.

    Dark times. Fall asleep in the back to heavy bass. Dance in the front and get molested by bodies. Shots and PBR between.

    $20 minimum on credit cards here, which is, by the way, completely illegal since the banking reforms in the President's first term. $10 limit is the max.
