Profile

This venue is closed.

With its dim interior and worn floorboards, this subterranean rock room appears at first glace to have preserved the East Village rawness that spawned punk music just a few blocks away. But a small bar in the corner serving wine and single-malt (and the booming clarity of the top-grade sound system) reveals that, like the surrounding neighborhood, this former dive has been upgraded for more discerning consumers. They come by the L-train-full for the occasional country artist performance, but the rest of the time, the stage is more likely to hold at least one distortion pedal. Comedy and theater nights allow the audience to slip into the shadows while emerging talent squints at the lights and everyone gets to experience the awkward excitement of something new. Perhaps the East Village hasn’t completely lost its former function after all.

Note

All shows are 21+ with proper I.D.
