    Fun spot with usually good live music. Sometimes too loud, and frequently overcrowded, but worth visiting to at least check it out.

    The bartender here was VERY rude to me. Was w/friends who were drunk but behaving and tipping well. I hadn't had a single drink and when I ordered a shot he told me "I clearly didn't need it."

    Bar in the front, live music in the back. Arlene's Grocery has kept LES local music on the map with seven weekly nights of music, including live music rock and roll karaoke nights. Always a party.

    Cool venue, nice staff, just not usually crowded, which affects the atmosphere. Generally good music, mixed in w/ pop covers you might want to avoid (maybe that's why the bar is separate).
