    This live music indie lounge is a venerable Lower East Side institution. The bi-level locale includes a sweets shop up top and a stage downstairs which regularly plays host to tunes from local talent.

    Super cool actual cake shop that has an even cooler tiny venue downstairs. Great for catching a late-night super intimate show.

    Indie-rock still has a home in Manhattan at Cake Shop. The ceiling is low and the stage non-existent, so get there early and get to the front if you want to see the latest rising stars.

    A place open late that you can get cake, hot chocolate, craft beer, specialty drinks, good music and live music? How can you not like it?

    Tea infused cocktails - try the earl grey old fashion or my favorite, the camomile infused gin with elderflower.

    Love the downstairs space, great to catch cool bands out of the blue for as low as $10.

    “If you want to see the band, you’ll have to get next to the speakers by the stage. Bring earplugs if you don’t want ringing ears for a few days.” More at

    If you don't get a cupcake here then you've made an awful mistake! The downstairs venue is the perfect space for an intimate show.

    The small space lets you get real close to the band, but it can also get really loud so bring earplugs if you have a pair. Read more

    Can't help but feel the basement room is a fire trap, especially when it's packed for a live band. Take note of the emergency exits!
