This sparsely stocked new boutique sells high-quality vintage on consignment, as well as clothing by young locals
like Sarah and Mociun, whose aesthetic could be called “hard girlie.” Look for “Glove Notes”—tufts of feather fixed flapper

that looks ripped from an
old airplane, this rock club lives up to its name. Among the
four to five bands a night ($6
to $8 cover charge, with open
bar and free tater tots), you
might be lucky enough to catch
a next big thing like TV on

It’s not the fanciest wine store—that would be Bottle Shoppe on Bedford Ave. (718-302-3433)—but this mural-covered space gets the job done with a big selection of $6 wines. They can make a $200 budget for a 100-person party work, and they’ll deliver anywhere in Williamsburg, usually within the hour and with no minimum.

This cozy, pretty Japanese sushi restaurant
is a good place to try shochu,
the grainier alternative to sake—twenty brands are lit from behind, apothecary style.

This vegan fast-food joint is run by refugee recyclers from Staten Island’s hardcore scene and skips the rice and veggies for truly delicious fake meat, breaded and fried. Buffalo wings and soy milkshakes attract an endless stream of bicyclists.

Williamsburg’s most beautiful lounge is also its most peaceful, thanks to an unmarked doorway and a long hallway back from the street. Have a contemplative cigarette on the second-story smoking deck.
