Verboten debuts new venue this weekend

“With the party-tossing Verboten gang’s eponymous venue on North 11th Street slated to open soon, it’s official: Williamsburg has become New York’s new clubland paradise.” Time Out New York

The Brooklyn party over the last 12 years, “Verboten” aka “forbidden” in German, is debuting its new venue for nightlife, music and arts in Williamsburg this weekend. Co-founders Jen Schiffer and John Perez have spent years designing and planning the new venue along with partners and industry veterans. The new venue will continue to host DJ residencies, yet will also showcase the diverse array of upcoming music and arts programming that will include live music, art shows, yoga & fitness classes, burlesque performances, and much more.

“We’re excited to build a home for ourselves and our team; a multi-functional event space in Brooklyn designed for musicians & artists to fulfill their creative visions. We look forward to celebrating the unique wealth of talent that NYC has to offer for everyone who comes through our doors.”
–Jen Schiffer & John Perez, Verboten Co-Founders
The 750-person capacity venue is a 10,000 square foot former metal manufacturing warehouse, designed by Verboten’s John Perez and architecture firm Latent. The design of the venue features industrial steel and concrete accents. The venue features a one of a kind Martin Audio sound system custom-designed by ITI Audio, ROBE lighting, panoramic HD video wall, video projections and 3D mapping by multimedia designers Waking Dream.
The main “Control Room” is a 1,400 square foot space with a wood dance floor [reclaimed from a Thomas Edison factory used to make phonographs], multiple staging areas for live music or DJ performances, and raised modular seating.  The “Cabaret Bar” is an intimate room with a take on a Weimar-era cabaret with leather banquettes, skylights, steel chandeliers, and a small stage with a DJ booth that allows the room to be used independently or with the “Control Room.  Verboten’s specialty cocktail menu will be featuring absinthe along with locally made syrups and artisanal sodas. These cocktails will be paired with a small plates menu beginning this summer.
