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.

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...
