Considering how many bars there are in the neighborhood, you would think that Williamsburg would be stuffed with places where you can dance. Not the case. Cafe Balearica is a great option, though. This two-story spot on the corner of 11th and Berry has a ground-floor space with tropical plants, high ceilings, and a big vibrant mural in addition to a clubby downstairs room where you can dance beneath a disco ball with a bunch of people you’ve probably seen at the Williamsburg Trader Joe’s. The downstairs is only open on Fridays and Saturdays (starting at 9pm), so that’s when you should stop by if you’re looking for a scene. The ground floor stays open Wednesday through Sunday, and if you need an attractive, relaxed spot where you can catch up with a friend, it’s great for that. Order a watermelon negroni, and claim a velvet booth near the big windows up front.
