    Strictly enforced 2-drink minimum, but worth it for a wonderful view of artists.

    I used to think I would never experience such a disappointing service and staff ever in my life, before this happened.

    Great place

    If you sit in the far booth on the couch, you may find yourself stretching your neck a lot to see the left side of the stage. If you're here for a show, beware!

  • alariva

    The banda were ver y good and dribla as well, but paying a $5 entrance and later find out a 2 drink min consumption per person and bitchy waitressing service was kinda dissapointing.

    alariva · November 9, 2013
  • Adrienn K.

    Music was good but 10$ cover and 2 ridicously expensive drink per person per show at a table is too much

    Even if you’re not that into the music, this is one of those classic New York spots where you can practically feel the history inside the room. Read more

    This place truly has the worst staff/service. Still coasting on that 60's fame. I'm only here to support a friend.

    One of my least favorite places to see a show in NYC. Ridiculous drink minimum, and people always talk through the sets.

    Highly recommend checking it out if you love live music & a bit of rock history. Place is small but worth squeezing into. This is Dylan's old stomping grounds!

    Check out the free singer/songwriter sessions on Sundays, and admire glimpses into the past (Dylan! Gaga!) on the walls of this classic club.

    If you are playing here with your band, expect to hit the stage a little bit later than scheduled. Virtually no backline. But the sound system is excellent.

    Had some good bands the night I was there.

    The Bitter End is not only the oldest rock club in the city, it's also where Bob Dylan got his start. He has five gold albums that were recorded there live.
