    Prepare to dance the night away at this Williamsburg staple. Drinks are reasonably priced; a DJ rocks the inside, while the taco stand and picnic benches out back offer a repose. - Green Guide Editor

    Cool hipster spot a little bit for everyone. Huge inside bar with a place for a band which they do. Great prices at the bar, unisex bathroom. There is an outside patio with a taco truck that is yummy

    I love The Woods but it’s become super popular! Arrive early to avoid cover and a long ass line! Other than that it’s reasonably priced drinks and great music!

    On Sunday nights, the wild dance bar transforms into a quaint jazz place full of life. The band that plays is truly not to be missed and they're incredible entertainers!

    One of the better bars in Williamsburg to check out. They have a cover charge usually which sucks but the music is on point. Also they have food in the back... aka drunk food on demand!

    Check out the Wednesday night party MISSTER with one of the best (if not the best) DJs in Brooklyn, Amber Valentine. Her crunk 90's trill DJ set will be sure to keep you coming back every Wed!

    Go for a beer in the daytime or evening on the weekend. You'll have the huge space basically to yourself! It's cool.

    If it's late, and you're still up, and you wanna dance but can deal with the drunk people-this is your place! Good music, the margarita is surprisingly good!

    Really chill & lovely venue in Williamsburg. Dance to an eclectic DJ set or stay in the backyard and meet new people in their 20s to 30s. Not the night of your life but definitely worth the $5 cover.

    The food in the back was delicious. Bacon on a stick. Hot dogs. Grilled cheese. And the drinks are pretty affordable. AND THE MUSIC WAS FANTASTIC!

    This is the only place I know where you can get down on the dancefloor with a fried chicken sandwich in hand. 👌🏾

    Perfect mix of music and epic munchies, I will be back. Bacon on a stick is way too fancy, much happier with my corn on the cob

    The roomy back yard is also home to Landhaus, maker of one of my favorite cheeseburgers and a delicious maple bacon on a stick

    Great dancing, like that they have a couple sections so you can order food and get away from the noise if you want

    Go to the back patio. Great feel on a nice day. The Haus burgers are soooo yum! And they're on potato bread!! 😋

    Great for happy hour 5-10 M-F. New taco truck in the back makes great carnitas nachos. Get a blueberry lemonade and enjoy.

    I come here to dance all night. You won't realize it's 4am until they knock up the lights at 3:50a. I enjoy how crowded it is - easy to get lost in the crowd.

    Great food and drinks, great servers, great security, TERRIBLE HEAD OF SECURITY. Got kicked out for complying and having a good time, don't go here.

    Affordable drinks, live bands, and groove-conscious DJ's draw an eclectic twentysomething crowd of North Brooklynites to The Woods.

    Come with friends, don't pay a huge entry fee, get a real long drink and date to smoke on the patio outside. Perfect old-school music 👌🏽

    Fun dancing and a night outdoor space. Like a slightly more remote and smaller version of Union Pool. All the same people frequent both.

    If you have to be here, go to the bar in the back across the patio and countdown the minutes till it's socially acceptable to leave.

    Great pickle back shots. Wait, all pickle back shots are great. If it's not too busy, play some shuffleboard in the back.

    Love the big outdoor area next to the dancefloor. I need more spots like this one. Union Pool comes close but I like the vibe here more.

    A place to dance the night away and have a few beers for a decent price. We think it deserves a trust rating:

    The bathrooms are easy to enter and hard to exit. Which is the opposite of what you want in a bathroom.

    Great on a weeknight, avoid at all costs on a Friday or Saturday. Unless you are creep, then you can join the other creeps there.

    Dark times. Fall asleep in the back to heavy bass. Dance in the front and get molested by bodies. Shots and PBR between.
