Totally enjoyed the 10 pm comedy show in this fun, intimate, cozy space. Hectic process to get in but totally worth it. The six acts were no holds barred, diverse, intense, and super funny. One of the comedians was a nationally known super star. Great...More

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.
