Came here to listen to my cousin's friend play, and was really impressed by what this place offers. It's a quaint bar, but the atmosphere was on point. I really enjoyed the music and the service. I got a specialty pisco drink and wish I knew what was in it so I could recreate it, it was VERY good.

So, okay, once they set up the folding chairs in the small back room the competition for seating was fierce. Had a drink . No minimum. No cover. We saw ETHAN LIPTON AND HIS ORCHESTRA who provided an unforgettable evening of brilliant, hilariously unique music and lyrics in an intimate setting. All they did was pass the hat asking for...

One of three favorite spots in NYC, after 7 years living here. A wonderful retreat. Owned by a French guy who's very devoted to the bands he hosts, and to providing a venue for all of us to just decompress and be real with each other.

Barbes is a Brooklyn institution that will be remembered in the annals of local history. It is a bar that is run by musicians for the music, rather than the other way around. Yes, the back room is small and cozy (sometimes steamy), but the music is consistently top-notch, even as it is very varied. Look at the online calendar... More

We went to see Steven Wrembley play guitar and play guitar he did and he was great with his quartet. The room is tiny with only a few wooden chairs so most people stand up. It was so steamy and hot in there it was ridiculous while it was snowing outside. Yet, if you know what to expect and you... More

This bar and music venue has a big reputation and we went expecting something more than we found and therefore were a bit disappointed. The staff greeted us in a friendly manner when we proclaimed that we were there 'for the jazz', and we were shuffled into the small back room where there were 9 folding chairs, 3 small tables...
