Emerging bands downstairs every night of the week. Cafe and Bar upstairs, all day and all night with good music all the time. Check in often for new specials.
Cake and liquor. Does it get any better?
food offerings meager, but great comedy!
Sweets & live music. Oh and booze. YES.
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.
Happy hour!!! And the bartender who is also known as DJ Ariel Max
Love the downstairs space, great to catch cool bands out of the blue for as low as $10.
Tea infused cocktails - try the earl grey old fashion or my favorite, the camomile infused gin with elderflower.
Great music venue!
You MUST visit both floors for the full experience.
Chip option to Piano's
Cake? Music? Hot toddies? This place is a gem.
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.
Great vegan baked goods(and this is coming from a non-vegan!) Friendly bar staff, cozy atmosphere.
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?
If you want to escape the tourist crowd in the village, just come here. Nice atmosphere, good beers, friendly staff.
Nice spot, but not sure I'd go here for the (ten) records.
The Best is the vintage records for sale.
Very cool space for a baron the evening Great music too
Music, drinks, coffee
They don't carry jack Daniels -__-
I got baked at the Cake Shop!
Cafe and bar with up and coming bands playing downstairs every night of the week. Give it a trust rating to help spread the word: http://bit.ly/1fciZzd
Bartender in the basement rocks!
Delcious pastries and sandwiches upstairs.
The legendary venue is a record store, bar, music venue, and pastry shop all rolled into one.
great cafe au lait. fun place for a late night hang for coffee/tea and/or alcohol with cake and cookies!
Bar staff both up and down are gorgeous, living dolls. Great drinks, nice chats. ♥
Sit down,drink a couple of beers during happy hour and write. Let words fly to you.
This is one hell of a small rock shop. The best of the best play HERE (or Pianos) first.
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.
“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
start band, play show here.
they do PG tips
love cakes here!
If you run into Henry Rollins, don't look him in the eyes.
A great place to lounge, listen to new music and work. Bring you laptop and order a mocha. :)
Love this space! Two for one happy hour a bonus. So glad I came back to support an old local favorite!
Mr. Dream will be playing the NYTAPER CMJ showcase at Cake Shop on Thursday 10/20/11 at 5:45 PM
Craving an explosive late night snack? Say hello to the Cake Shop's Peanut Butter Bomb.
$15 long iced tea- wasn't even good. Stick to beer or wine. I often find the baked goods not very "good".
Incredible cake & great local bands!
Cute space!! Strong drinks!! I really wanna cookie :p
