Best garage-rock venue (2008)

THE HOOK

In a totally industrial section of beautifully deserted Red Hook is a rad new venue (capacity about 450), which books garage's finest, like the classic, never-not-awesome oldsters the Lyres, and scene staples like Detroit's Demolition Doll Rods, not to mention plenty of fabulous local acts (the Shop Fronts, Little Killers, Dan Melchior's Broke Revue). Plus, THE HOOK—far away from the nearest subway stop at Carroll Street—reimburses anyone who takes a car service there the price of the ride in drinks.
