Best of New York 2014 • Fun

Best Concert Venue

  • Baby’s All Right

    146 Broadway, nr. Bedford Ave., Williamsburg; 718-599-5800

    Considering Williamsburg’s reputation for raw DIY ­spaces (Death by Audio, the recently shuttered 285 Kent), the elegant Baby’s All Right, designed by the folks behind the Box, feels very ­done-up. There’s a floor modeled after the maze in The Shining, orb-chomping laser-cut ­alligators, and LED installations by industrial demigod Tucker Viemeister. Yet ­proprietors Zachary Mexico and Billy Jones share the same anything-goes spirit as their new neighbors, with laid-back parties and live shows that cut across a wide spectrum of experimental (Pharmakon, Stephen O’Malley), guitar-guided (Nobunny, Sebadoh), and sample-spliced (Powell, the Range) sounds. They also ­offer a reputable food menu from Ronald Murray, late of Acme and Bouley.
