Location Description:

North 6 St. in Williamsburg is the hub for dance parties, from the electro-friendly booking at Music Hall of Wburg to Public Assembly, a double-room venue that hosts DJs, cabaret, rock, pop, and the infrequent Mustache Championships. The wide rooms are excellent for movement; shy types need not apply at one of the artsiest clubs around.
