Went last night and and was amazed by a guy named Dana Leonardi who sat in with the band for a couple songs. What an incredible guitarist.

We love live music and especially 'soul' so we scoured the Internet to find a club in NYC that would suit two visitors from the UK. Found this place and went to the open mic night one Sunday. We booked in advance (essential). Arriving at 8.45pm, there was already a queue. The fascinating mix of tourists, locals, students and singers... More

I was in NYC for a girls' trip the first weekend in May, and we hit the Village Underground on that Friday night. We started with some laughs at the Comedy Cellar (same building, same room, so convenient) and stayed for the live music. It was phenomenal. The house band was talented, fun and energetic and played tunes for a... More

I had my birthday party here in March. We arrived from Europe and it was worth it. The club has great atmosphere and excellent band.

Entertainment at this little underground lounge/bar was absolutely amazing! The band was brilliant (they could pretty much play ANY song you want) and the singers that signed up to perform that night when we went (it was open mic session) were also fantastic! My bf and I got there at 10pm, which was just when the show started but there... More

Love the VU - as a Manhattan resident for ~7 years now and tired of the posh scene in seceral areas in the city, I love bringing friends here that want a taste of good live music and a great time. Can get a little crowded and the prices are on par with the village. Expect a cover ranging from... More

My wife and I have visited NY twice in the past three months and Village underground 3x on those two trips. We love good soulful and varied live music which is exactly what VU delivers Mon-Sat nights. Also, Amanda Brown from The Voice was one of the female vocalists when we went there in Sept. She was but one of... More

Some of the best jamming I have ever experienced. It was "open microphone" with guests on vocal and the house band as backing. It was absolutely fabulous! Went there 3 nights and will definitely go back next time in Manhatten.

Awesome place to see live music. Brought a friend who was visiting from out of town, and we had a great time.
