    Unabridged joy night after night. If you don't like show tunes and high school theatre geeks reclaiming their thrones, it's not the place for you.

    The best place to go if you're feeling down! There's always someone playing Broadway classics on the piano, and at least a few others singing along at this cute little bar in the West Village.

    My absolute favorite bar in New York. Live showtunes every night, and a good crowd from the end of work right up to closing. Keep an eye out for the occasional Broadway or TV star too.

    Most quintessential NYC place ever. Go early for uber cheap drinks and more access to the piano, go late for amazing singers and rando Bway celebs gloriously belting showtunes.

    If you request Rent, you will get seasons of love. If you request little mermaid, you will get part of that world. bring cash to tip the pianist. The singing waiters are quite exceptional.

    Come here already drunk; keep a buzz w/ a $7 Bud (...yea, 7). Mixed drinks (also $7) are dixie cup size. ¬_¬ Use the can or go outside when any of the waitstaff starts "singing."
