This little hole is reputed to be the best place in town to listen to jazz, it's maybe true, but if the place gets packed, good luck with the temperature, at least in summer time. Other than that, great vibe.

Great late night music on a Friday night when nothing else seemed to be happening. Cash only drinks and some of the best live music we've heard/seen in the city. Tiny place....grab a seat where ever you can find one. Friendly people.

Right next door from The Duplex. Definitely seems to be more of a “local” hangout. But the bartender, she was friendly enough. Had a drink and listened to a few songs by a very good blues guitarist/harp player. Cozy and small, but neat spot for...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
