NYC Bars That Actually Play Rap Image via theflatbkny.com

The Flat

Neighborhood: Williamsburg
Address: 308 Hooper St.
Website: theflatbkny.com

Anything goes at the Flat—anything. Not only is it a bar that plays hip-hop, but you're more also likely to find that it's your fav NYC rappers that are playing the rap. As a person who wears glasses, I am never able to see once inside, but I'm certain I've never reached the far wall. Despite its many Williamsburg in-crowd regulars, you're more likely to find Mister Cee trolling on Broadway (be a good friend and send him home) after leaving and it's South Williamsburg/Bushwick location guarantees a diverse group. It's dark, it's fun, and as long as you're gone before people get weird and start going to the bathroom more than the bar, you'll be fine.
