IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Verboten Grand Opening This Weekend

Verboten translates to “forbidden” in German, but the opening of a new club of the same name in Williamsburg is by no means as restrictive as the name would suggest. It is in fact, the exact opposite. It's like the Garden of Eden, a paradise full of everything you could ever want from a nightlife, music, and arts venue, and nothing is off limits. This Friday and Saturday, March 14th and 15th, Verboten hosts the grand opening of its purpose-built venue and invites you to come try some of forbidden food and drinks, you won't regret it.
