Black Flamingo is a vegan Mexican restaurant in Williamsburg that turns into a bar at night. Upstairs, there’s a lounge area where you can hang out and have both a cocktail and a conversation with someone. Downstairs you’ll find a little basement that gets dark, loud, and crowded. In other words, that’s where you want to be dancing. Expect crowds on weekends, and get there before midnight if you don’t want to pay a cover or wait in line, because there’s a good chance that there will be both of those things.

El Toro Blanco
El Toro Blanco is a trendy spot that’s Perfect For some Action At The Bar and a slightly less Raucous Party Atmosphere than you’d get a few avenues over in the Meat Packing District. The food just isn’t all that good.

Hotel Delmano is probably the best date spot in Williamsburg. It’s dark, cozy, and feels like an ocean liner that sank a long time ago.
