    Relocated to Brooklyn, still a great place to see your favorite indie band. Friendly staff, nice bar, excellent sound.

    Quickly becoming one of our favorite NYC venues. Two bars means it's never too hard to get a drink. The bands keep getting better too!

    Too broke for the show? Sit down at the bar, order a $3 beer and watch the show through the huge glass window. Works great when they run the live sound into the bar, still kinda funny when they don't.

    Great sound for a small and intimate spot. You can watch the show from the restaurant, separated by glass windows. Never seen more people onstage at a Hip-hop show than the Phife Dog tribute here!

    game nerds, take note: this place has a weird Nintendo/SNES/Sega hybrid console and a bucket of games that you can play if you ask nicely. But be forewarned, if you fire it up, you may never leave.

    They always have great residencies and if your that into the band you can always watch them through the glass while sitting at the bar in the front of the venue. Grab some Fette Sau BBQ across the St.
