Best Live Music
The Rock Shop
249 4th Ave, Park Slope
Concrete floors, cheap drinks in plastic cups, and no VIP section—this is the real deal: a sports bar with burgers, wings, a rooftop patio and live music from the former booker for Bell House and Union Hall. Opened just in time for last year's CMJ by the owner of Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge.
Don Pedro, 90 Manhattan Ave, Williamsburg
Dark, dingy and cheap, this East Williamsburg spot is one of the best spots to catch hot Bushwicksburg bands without having to pay $8 a beer.
