    If your opinion of a music joint is based solely on whether or not you get your freebie, you're a soulless hipster who shouldn't be allowed to darken the welcome mat of ANY establishment. 78 B rocks.

    The free kamikaze ain't free. It's bullshit. The bartender told me its only for one person per night. Again, bullshit.

    The special is a joke. They only honor the first person per night. Don't bother. This place sucks.

    Taffy, is there another pl in UWS you can see awesome established bands for free? Let me know. Sodas are usually 4 bucks but when there's a band playing, sodas cost $7. "I just wanna dance!"

    They charge $7.50 for a glass of plain club soda...no refill..it cost more than the beers I bought my husband. Absolutely ridiculous.

    What a great place, the drummer from Wings, and one of the Blue Brothers. Best live music venue I have been to in New York so far

    78 Below, both fan-friendly (no cover) & musician-friendly (a quality back-line + bands get 2-3 hrs to stretch out), is a much needed UWS live-music spot. Dig it & tip your bartender & waitress well!
