    Great place to hang w/ good music. Sometimes you need to pay $10-15 for the admission but mostly it's FREE. Highly recommend stage 2 rather than stage 1.

    This venue has given the stage to local NYC bands since the ’90s. Every day, a few indie, bluegrass and Americana bands take to either one of the two stages to showcase their talent.

    If your bartender is a brunette named Ann, check out her band Mother Feather and tip her very well. She rocks and is a sweetie.

    Main attractions are obviously the two stages with their entrances on Allen Street. in addition, there is a large bar space that has its entrance on Orchard. lovely spot for a drink before a show.
