Baby Grand is the baby of married couple Mike Uy and Raylene Gorum, both self-proclaimed karaoke evangelists—so much so that they ditched mother-approved careers as a hedge funder (him) and an architect (her) to run the place as full-time owners, part-time bartenders, and occasional dueters. In an ode to the name, the L-shaped bar is painted black halfway down and white halfway up (nevermind that an actual baby grand wouldn’t fit inside the tiny—240-square-foot!—space).

Gallery Space

The bar also accommodates New York's tiniest “gallery,” a monthly rotation of artist work displayed via 24 one-inch slides (magnifying glasses included).
