Best Outer-Borough Dance Party
“Journey” at Caviar Studios
46 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn
718-222-9456


Outer-borough clubbing has come a long way since the days of Tony Manero. Thanks to Manhattan gentrification and Giuliani’s never-ending nightlife crackdown, a slew of trendsetting parties have emerged in Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx in the past few years—Krash, the Warehouse, and Bang the Party, to name just a few—putting a new spin on the term bridge-and-tunnel. Right now, the best reason to juice up your MetroCard is “Journey,” a Friday-night deep-house party near the Navy Yard in Brooklyn that’s home to one of the city’s sweatiest dance floors. D.J. Kim Lightfoot’s intoxicating mix of vocal house, Afro-funk, and soul classics brings out the city’s more serious steppers. Best of all: The club has some of the friendliest doorpeople found in any borough—one freezing night the bouncer insisted that we stand closer to a heater in the doorway!
