Comedy nerds (and their loyal friends) mix with tourists at this tiny, no-frills room in midtown inside the larger Broadway Comedy Club. The long folding tables (with enough room for 85) might invoke flashbacks of your high-school cafeteria days (as will the menu filled with White Castle burgers and awful institutional pizza), but after a beer or two, it's almost charming. Each night's multiple shows are filled with improv, sketch, and stand-up performers just getting their starts, giving you the chance—however slim—to claim you saw the next big thing way back when. Events also take place at the Downtown Room (located, yes, downstairs) and the adjacent City Café, home of the City After-Parties. Improv classes are also offered.

Open Mic Nights:
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Free Monday, $3 Wednesday and Friday, with a one-drink minimum. Register at
