J, M, Z at Marcy Ave.
TBA Brooklyn—named for the city’s underground electronica scene, where party locations are “TBA” till the day of—has audiophiles, artists, and foreign nationals flocking to a seven-week-old former auto shop in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge. Run by a gaggle of nightlife veterans from Blkmarket Membership, Porch, and Deep, the democratic space (there’s no door policy) has a pumping sound system, stiff tequila drinks (try the Habla Habanero, made with Espolon Reposado and mango purée; $10), and room for up to 150 bodies. Still, it’s the rarefied techno, electronica, and house programming— a lineup that includes heavies like Stimming, Pig&Dan, and Butane—that will really give Williamsburg’s first megaclub, the months-old Output, a run for its revelers.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
