Dropped in after the show at the Comedy Cellar. LOVED the band! Place was packed with folks from all over. Fun time.
Here's a place to be alive NYC style. It's a low ceiling, dingy basement with seats set up in booths around a small stage. The house band played all genres under the pop and rock sun, from Marley to nirvana. It is loud, and my ears are ringing almost 24 hours later. The house band isn't playing ever night, so... More
A live band playing good music and a very nice vibe down there, i will love to go again. I just had such a great time :)
Loved the band! Sunday is no cover and the music was great! Although the atmosphere is dark, cramped and uninviting, I will definitely be back for the great tunes! The food was simple bar food. In the future, I would eat first and enjoy the music after.

Just got in from having spent Sunday evening/early hours of Monday morning at Cafe Wha and was compelled to come on here and write how amazing the place is! Took my fiancé for his birthday, booked same day for the 9.30pm set, which goes on til 2.30am! Free to get into on a Sunday (no cover charge), only a two... More
