Club in East Village & Lower East Side

This brick-vaulted cavern beneath Ave A does its best to hide – access is through an unmarked door behind a cafe that seems to occupy it's (Berlin's) address, then steep stairs lead down into a dim, riotous indie lair. Once you're in, enjoy a night of rock, funk, disco, house and other party tunes in close proximity with your fellow revelers.

The fun, bohemian crowd mixes with little pretension, and you might see a vestige of the East Village as it was in its days of full-blown hedonism.
