Output is located at 74 Wythe Ave
10 PM – 6 AM on days with shows
Since opening in January beside the Wythe Hotel, Output has lured techno geeks and Manhattanites to an industrial stretch of Williamsburg rapidly evolving into the borough’s meatpacking district. A neon-illuminated bunker with vague references to a power plant, Output conjures Berlin-style ambience without the decadence. A rooftop patio recently opened.
Few Jersey Shore fist-pumpers here amid an amiable crowd of electronic music fans in their 20s and 30s in V-necks and untucked oxfords. With music roaring past 4 a.m., patrons guzzle water after hours.
Expect long sets from established and cutting-edge electronic D.J.s like AraabMuzik, Danny Tenaglia and D.J. Shadow. At parties like Horse Meat Disco or Maison Kitsune’s anniversary jam, the Funktion One sound system (one of only two in the city) renders any synth-buried high-hat crystalline clear.
- You don’t come to Output to be seen; you come for the music and atmosphere.
- Output brings a wide variety of talent. Past acts have included Madeon, Kaskade, Disclosure, Dusky, etc. Check Discotech to see who’s spinning.
- Stays open til 6 AM on Fridays and Saturdays
- Output features two rooms with two different DJs. May need to buy separate tickets for each room. Make sure you have the correct room when purchasing tickets!
- No pictures or video. Cell phones are highly discouraged. Except on the rooftop.
- The rooftop deck – A little bit of an adventure to find for the first time, but worth it once you do. It’s a good place to pre-game if you arrive “early.” (I also like Kinfolk bar across the street for that purpose). The rooftop is great as well for a late night breather or a smoke break (ironic, huh). Lots of varied seating including mattresses. A prime view of the Manhattan skyline. During the summer weekend afternoons, there’s rooftop-only events for those who like their electronica in the sun.
- There’s no VIP: but there’s VIP-style couches everywhere. Anytime you want to sit down and take a break on any one of the many leather couches, go right ahead.
- Atmosphere: dark, yet well-lit enough to get around and see the people around you. The lights & strobes are unreal and make for some incredible visuals. Fog machines and strategically-located fans keep everyone cooled down during the crowded hours.
- Co ed bathrooms – great for couples or guy/girl friends because you can go into the bathroom together and leave together (not wait for her to take forever in the girls’ line or vice versa). There are a lot of bathrooms available.
