Considering Williamsburg’s reputation for raw DIY spaces, 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.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
