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.

St. Mazie is a relatively low-key Williamsburg bar that has live music and good cocktails.
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.
