    I was at SOB's just last night as an invited guest. I was there to do a freelance job for Art of Rhyme which involved doing a video spotlight on one of the artist they had performing that night. We...

  • 2. McSorley's Ale House

    Seriously, I want to move to East Village just to become a regular here. Just a couple singles gets you not one, but TWO delicious hand crafted beers. And it's not that crap Miller Light, gotta be...

  • 3. Broadway & Shows

    Can you imagine that some performances were so good that I forgot to use my camera? I was lucky to see George Coleman playing sax, like God. It was such a great experience! I was hypnotized for an...

  • 4. Copacabana

    My first time here we were lucky enough to get on the guest list for this great club. Saved us the hassle of waiting on line as well as the admission price. I honestly really like the place. Upstairs...

  • 5. Guest House & Home

    OMG, this place was hot, hot, hot!! There is a huge line to get in, but if you don't mind shelling out a few hundred (more like $600) for a table, you're in!! Come with a group so you can all chip in...

  • 7. Cafe Wha?

    This nice small venue is a typical pub with live music every night. It’s located in Greenwich Village like many other small venues like this. The stuff were very polite to us and the man at the door...

  • 8. De La Guarda

    This is by far the craziest thing we have ever seen! It's not quite theater, not quite a concert, but somewhere in between. It's indescribable, all we can say is LOOK UP! COMFORTABLE! You are on your...

  • 9. The Bitter End

    The Bitter End claims to be New York City's oldest rock club. I will not dispute the claim as it is a fabulous place to see rock bands of the highest quality. Numerous notable celebrities have played...

  • 10. Slainte Pub

    Slainte is a great Irish pub with a large beer menu on tap or bottle. It also has a large selection of top shelf liquor and wines to please any one. Ferni likes his Bacardi and I usually enjoy a Blue...

  • 11. Mulberry Street Bar

    We were wandering around the San Genaro Festival when I felt like a drink. We ducked into the Mulberry Street Bar. The crowd was definitely local and were watching the football game on the big screen...

  • 12. Sound Factory

    It was Saturday night. Your first clue you're in the wrong NYC club is the line. There is zero dress code and everyone wearing anything gets in. I need you to picture this for a second because it was...

  • 13. Coyote Ugly

    After seeing the (pretty awful) film of the same name, I was sure that the Saloon would be the No.1 tourist trap of all time. Unbelievably this my No.1 bar in NYC. At $4 a pint, bottle or short, it's...

  • 14. Gin Mill

    Jazz Clubs in New York New York City is the "hub" of the Jazz World. All the greats made their names here, and young up-and-comers flock to the city for the chance to prove themselves. ##55 Bar 55...

  • 15. Village Vanguard

    Max Gordon founded this much-celebrated jazz club in 1935. Ever since, it's been in the same basement location in the West Village. With a seating capacity of 123, it retains the same intimate...

  • 16. Fat Cat

    Very laid back place with late night/early morning live music. Music, Billiards, Table Tennis, Shuffleboard, Scrabble, Chess, Checkers, Backgammon, Cards, Beer, Wine, Soju, Coffee, Tea, Juice,...

  • 17. Fat Black Pussy Cat

    We were having a bad night, my friend's birthday bash at Tortilla Flats, in the West Village, was a bit flat - not exactly a party atmosphere and neither the food nor drinks were great. We decided to...

  • 18. The Rainbow Room

    The Rainbow Room is one of those MUST DO New York experiences. It'll set you back a small fortune but will be a drink you'll remember for the rest of your life. View is half of what you'll see from...

  • 19. Lucky Cheng’s

    This is a Chinese food restaurant with Drag Cabaret for entertainment. Before you go here, please go to their website so that you don’t get surprised by anything. I will try to explain it as easily as...

  • 20. Culture Club

    This place is for people who like to dance and just have so much fun. Downstairs is eghties music, upstairs nineties. The vibe is tourists and bachelorette parties and anyone else fun. There is no...

  • 21. Radio City Music Hall

  • 23. Don't Tell Mama

    Don't tell mama is a wonderful piano bar where you can drop in for a couple on nightcaps and listen to some incredible performers who also serve the drinks sing all the Broadway show tunes. Go early...

  • 24. Webster Hall

    I could go on forever, but my allround fav club at the time (we're talking 1996 here) was Webster Hall. Yeah yeah, I know it's very touristy and often perceived as 'out', but who cares? It's the...

  • 25. Pyramid Club

    The Pyramid, 1984 night (Fridays 10pm-5am) $7 Cheezy 1980s nights abound everywhere, but this one is bouncy and cheap and consistently fun, so I'm recommending it, especially if you are from out of...
