After over a decade of throwing events all over New York and beyond, Verboten has touched down in Brooklyn at their long-awaited permanent home for quality underground music. The venue is a 10,000 square foot former metal shop in the heart of Williamsburg, featuring two rooms, multiple skylights and futuristic, industrial accents that bring the Verboten aesthetic to life.
The Control Room has been designed from the ground up to be a true home for dance music events, concerts and private events, featuring a cutting edge Martin Audio sound system [including line arrays for live music], acoustic ceiling panels, panoramic video walls, raised seating areas and a sprung wood dance floor [reclaimed from a warehouse once belonging to Thomas Edison].
The adjacent Cabaret Bar is a warmer, more intimate space with its own sound system, designed to function along with the Control Room or completely independently. Featuring overstuffed leather banquettes, sound absorbent curtains, neon chandeliers, and a burned concrete bar, it plays host to day parties, smaller weeknight events, art shows, cabaret and [eventually] a small plates restaurant.
