54 N 11th St, NY
“Nothing is forbidden" is the motto of Verboten, a underground party generating movement for the people founded by Jen Schiffer and John Perez. Specializing in deep house and techno, the crew has spent over 12 years hijacking a variety of boats, festival stages, large clubs and outdoor spaces. However, starting this weekend, these party nomads are pitching a permanent tent in Williamsburg. Verboten, the club, opens tonight in a 10,000 square foot former metal manufacturing warehouse and can accommodate up to 750 revelers. Programming for the space is going to be diverse with plans to host live music, art shows, yoga & fitness classes, and burlesque performances. For this evening's launch festivities, Crosstown Rebels’ are holding one of their infamous Rebel Rave parties. Label head Damian Lazarus and his crew, including Francesca Lombardo, Fur Coat, Ida Engberg and Verboten residents Pattern Drama, are poised to provide a forward-thinking experience for this new party spot’s maiden voyage.
