New NYC Club Schimanski to Open in Former Verboten Location



In Brooklyn, one beloved club was lost about six months ago – the well-known and much loved Verboten – when it was seized by the state in March 2016 due to its previous owners failing to pay a hefty sum of sales taxes. Since then, the venue has been silent – until now.

Rumors – and fliers – have begun circulating around Brooklyn that a new club named Schimanski will open in November in Verboten’s place. Club-goers and music lovers alike are excited, as this step was expected since the property was purchased in July. The club’s name comes from a fictional character in a 1981 German crime series.

Fliers have been circulating the area – which you can see in the image below – hinting at lineups filled with some of the best in the underground dance music world, as well as an opening party in November with performers including Breakbot, Lauren Lane, Radio Slave and more. The lineup for its fall season include Edu Imbernon, wAFF, Eli & Fur, Mat.Joe, Sascha Dive and numerous other heavy-hitters New York residents will definitely be looking forward to.
