Came for the live entertainment and my expectations were certainly exceeded. I would have paid decent money to see their house band perform again! Super talented and super engaging. Played a selection of well known hits, with songs from Adele, U2, Radiohead, Rihanna, etc. Didn't...More

Good place to kick around in the village. Food is pretty good and they have a decent drink selection. It's perfect for when visiting by NYU as the entire street has pretty good options

We recently attended a music event here and made the mistake of eating while we were there. I had a burger and fries. My standard is Wendy's. I think the food should be at least as good as Wendy's, especially since it cost three times...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

I Just had beers and a couple of appetizers. Beer depende much on The type, but i remember paying 5 dollars for a blue moon. And around 20 bucks for the appetizers. But the music was very good! Worth a visit. Enjoy!
