It’s a small space and people get jammed in tight but the sound is great if you stay in front of the stage - it gets weaker off to the sides. The location and history make this place a must see.

This is a really comfortable small venue to see up and coming music groups. Bar prices are not exorbitant. And service is good.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
