Union Pool

"Both a characterization and a caricature of the Williamsburg music scene, this well-designed music venue also serves as a bar and as a training ground for the hip-to-be. The quarters are a bit close, but it's a welcome trade-off for the comfortable booths. Besides, with a backyard for the smokers, Union Pool seems to keep the pint-glass swimmers from overcrowding. Portrayed erroneously as "Brooklyn Pool" in the movie Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist ."
