G at Nassau Ave.
An integral part of the city's music scene, Warsaw (located inside the Polish National Home, in Greenpoint) has played host to outré newcomers (Le Tigre, the New Pornographers), as well as still-relevant favorites (Patti Smith). It's a discerning balance that most clubs—with their unsubstantial underground acts or museum-worthy oldies bands—fail to achieve. Warsaw's high ceilings, good sight lines, and clear sound make the venue one of the city's premier nightlife destinations—in any borough.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
