Located in the home of former venue Club Europa, Good Room was redesigned by nightlife impressario Steve Lewis and opened in October 2014. The main room was designed with the DJ in mind with a perfectly placed booth, solid sound system, ample dance floor and small stage for performances. Another area houses their massive square bar with surprisingly reasonable drink prices, while a side smaller room—the Bad Room—houses a massive wall of vinyl and another DJ set-up for separate tunes. For people who don’t want to deal with the hassle of Brooklyn’s newer mega clubs, Good Room is the perfect club antidote.
Amid the handful of both legit and underground DIY venues popping up (and vanishing just as quickly) in Brooklyn, Black Flamingo appears to be here to stay. The chill two-level location opened its doors quietly in 2015, but partiers quickly adopted the restaurant-bar-nightclub, and for good reason: David Shapiro and Etan Fraiman of Battery Harris, Eli Goldstein of Soul Clap, Philipp Jung of M.A.N.D.Y., Gadi Mizrahi ofWolf + Lamb and creative partner, Bryce David, are all scene veterans behind the venue, which serves food upstairs while hosting excellent DJs downstairs and go-to parties like Kaviar Disco Club in the warm, wood-crafted den.
This multiroom dance club, located next to the Wythe Hotel in North Williamsburg, was hailed as the savior of NYC nightlife even before it opened. Enjoy its great sound system and firm commitment to the underground, both in its house- and techno-heavy booking policy and general lack of bottle-service inanity. While the lines can get quite long and the dancefloor a bit too crowded on busy Fridays and Saturdays, the pristine Funktion-Ones and excellent bookings usually make the hassle worthwhile.
Empire State experience :
Many are surprised to find out that the Empire State Building is open until 2AM every night, the last elevator up is 1:15AM! A late night visit to our Observatories, whether after dinner or into the early morning hours to catch the illuminated skyline, will be a highlight of your trip. For some real romance, come Thursday through Saturday, 9PM-1AM to catch their live saxophonist. Yes, he takes requests.
