Best D.J. Bar

643 Broadway

In recent years, APT and the Tribeca Grand dominated the dance-connoisseur D.J. scene with superb bookings—which made the tinny sound systems and barely-there dance floors of both places doubly frustrating. Happily, a better option has arrived: What this subterranean bar lacks in design, it makes up for with a decent dance floor and speakers powerful enough to capture the sub-bass on that obscure house classic. After-work cocktail drinkers help keep things jumping, as everyone from cult German techno label Kompakt’s latest contender, Jake Fairley, to “Body and Soul” disco icon Danny Krivit grace the decks. Table 50 points the way to a New York future in which people who like dance music have an actual place to, you know, dance.
