We stumbled across the Apollo by chance and liked it so much that we went back a second night in s row. A nice and cosy venue with some big names in the past. The two shows we went to both finished by midnight and...More
We were very excited to attend a show here. The audience were fun, very engaged. The house band were very good and the compere was funny. The acts were generally good and 2 were excellent. My only disappointment was how touristy it was.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighbourhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
