Billie’s Black Bar Lounge is the quintessential soul-food spot in Harlem. The fender in the far corner plays a mash-up of hardcore rap, neo-soul, and old-school. The bar seats four and fills up quickly, so grab a wooden chair at one of the cafeteria-style tables to enjoy slam poetry or a scheduled performance. If you’re looking for more privacy, there are several high tables that seat two. Billie’s serves a full menu alongside specialty cocktails like the Billie's Kiss (Tanqueray and Peach Schnapps) or the Black Heifer (Bailey’s and Amaretto).
