Knitting Factory

361 Metropolitan Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11211

  • Mon–Wed 4pm–4am, Thu–Sun noon–4am

Previous incarnations of this iconic music venue existed on East Houston Street at the edge of NoLIta and on Leonard Street in TriBeCa. This locale, in the heart of a thriving nightlife scene, started a new chapter in the venue's rock 'n' roll history back in 2009. Capacity is approximately 300 in the intimate main room; the front bar is not just a place to sit for a drink before the show—it sometimes hosts events, like Sunday night comedy.

Arts & Culture Comedy Night at the Knitting Factory

The cerebral Hannibal Buress—who's written for Saturday Night Live and made memorable appearances on 30 Rock—still drops by this free weekly stand-up showcase in Williamsburg from time to time, but Will Miles, Clark Jones and Kenny DeForest usually host these days. Make sure to call ahead and check whether the show's happening before you go; they do skip some weeks and charge admission on special occasions. Guests regularly stop by, and many of them are famous. Don't bring the kids, though—it's 21-plus.
