The great thing about Brooklyn nightlife is that there really is something for everyone: Old-school dive bars, swanky hotel rooftops, bowling alleys, shuffleboard bars, outdoor patios with fairy lights and repurposed wooden tables, and pretty much everything in between. The vibe tends to vary by neighborhood—Williamsburg skews toward the younger, dance-ready crowd, and you’re likely to find something a little more tame closer to Prospect Park.
