Since it opened in June 1998, the Bowery Ballroom has had the title of best music club in New York pretty much locked up. And one of the primary reasons it's so popular, apart from superior sightlines and sound, is the darkly swank, well-stocked bar. The band playing upstairs ain't doing the trick for you? Plant your tuchas down and get yourself nicely plastered without having to bear the sounds of Johnny Indie-Rocker. Whether or not the show agreed with you, Bowery Ballroom also offers downtown's best post-show hang: Johnny Indie-Rocker can be fun to drink with, lousy music notwithstanding.


The box office is located at Mercury Lounge, and accepts cash only (open MonSat, noon7pm). For credit card purchases, call 800-745-3000 or go to
