Best of New York 2014 • Fun

Best College Dance Party for Adults

  • “Oh Yes!” at Tutu’s

    25 Bogart St., at Varet St., Bushwick; 718-456-7898

    For those who lived and played in a pre-Flea Williamsburg, lately it feels as if all the spots where one could get footloose with a group of friends have been overrun with weekend warriors. The solution? Go East—down into Tutu’s somewhat-secret basement, for a dance party that is as comfy, carefree, and drunken as the shindigs you attended in college. One ­Friday a month (for future parties check, the basement gets sweaty with Bedford Avenue exiles dancing like only their closest friends are watching. The unpretentious vibe comes courtesy of DJ’s John McSwain, Anette Lamothe Ramos, and Lucas Walters, whose selections range from the familiar to the revelatory: from Ginuwine’s “Pony” to A$AP Ferg to Stevie Nicks.
