Schimanski

Schimanski

When you stroll up to Schimanski, it doesn't look much different from its defunct predecessor, Verboten, with its façade of classy rusted metal and sandblasted brickwork. Inside, the Williamsburg, Brooklyn nightclub looked pretty much identical too, aside from the addition of a high-end Alpha Dynacord sound system. In fact, when I arrived at the club's "pre-opening" Halloween party on Monday night (October 31)—a blow-out featuring a cast of American and European house and techno heavyweights like DeWalta, Konstantin, Boris Werner, Jesse Calosso, and Caleb Calloway playing till 4AM—I overheard one clubgoer say, "Everyone's just going to keep calling it Verboten."

Nowadays

Nowadays

Nowadays is an outdoor performance venue and hangout spot from the team behind well-loved Brooklyn dance parties Mister Sunday and Mister Saturday Night, offering cold beer, fresh food, and communal, backyard vibes. Nowadays provides a relaxed, park-like setting for all-ages performance and play. The central feature of the garden is a padded, multi-use dance floor that accommodates hundreds of dancers on Sunday afternoons. A formal grid of honey locust trees surrounds the floor, offering filtered shade and a leafy canopy to relax beneath. Nowadays opened an listening bar inside called Indoors, which is situated on an industrial stretch of Cooper Avenue lined with auto repair shops. The 5,000-square-foot converted warehouse features an audiophile-approved custom sound system, fog machines and a polished marble bar that runs the length of the modern, minimalist space. Hypnotic blue strobes pulse on the hazy dance floor, where a strict no-cellphone policy is enforced. Indoors hosts niche listening events like Planetarium, where people are encouraged to bring pillows, blankets, and even sleeping bags to get cozy on the floor and listen to music in silence for five hours. Indoors also offers vinyl records for quiet listening, strategy board games, and even a class about Stranger Things taught by start-up Think Olio.
