WORST PLACE EVER – Hard to find...first of all. Second of all, when we walked in all you saw was a bunch of wierdos with spiked hair-dos, pierced lips, knee high socks, Adidas and glow sticks jumping around like lunatics. The entire place smelled like Vix Vapor Rub and the music was some strange hard core underground techno. My brother and I walked in and walked right back out...but not before getting a refund on the $15 cover charge per person. The only good thing about it was that it was easy to get into......obviously.
amazing space - amazing sound – First of all - this place is easy as pie to get to - the walk from the train is shorter than many I've taken in Alphabet City to get to where I'm going. This is hands down one of the coolest venues I've been to - a really state-of-the-art stage and sound system...an awesome vibe...bleachers to hang out in and sizeable backyard to hang out in. It's exciting to be in a place like this because you feel like you're in on an awesome little secret. I'll be going to The Hook a lot more often.
fantastic – took the f train to carroll st and walked there in 8 mins. decor was amazing, people nice, good beer selection. sound system rocks. beer garden is great. my new favorite place. i recommend to anyone.
Live music, tons of atmosphere and nearly 5,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor space--prepare to get hooked. – The Scene
Is Red Hook the next Williamsburg? A few treks to this lofty music venue have already prompted some fans to seek apartments nearby. Industrial as DUMBO and brimming with potential, both Red Hook--and its best new asset--are a delicious, hard-rocking respite from Brooklyn's restaurant rows and ho-hum bars. They serve Schlitz in a can and malt liquor 40s, and don't even try to pay by credit card. It's a totally independent gig with big ideas, Jager in the fridge and music variety up the wazoo.
Whatever the music on tap--ranging from electronica DJs to a multimedia art-and-music blitz or an old-school reggae show--you'll find folks phoning friends from the huge concrete garden, imploring them to hop in a cab. A brick-laid bar and high, raw-beam ceiling get touches of club-style with professional stage lighting, four disco balls and sexy red chandeliers.
