Great for night fun

Very nice place to go to have fun in NYC night. There always live music in the weekends - very good bands playing different type of songs (pop, rock, blues, old american songs, etc). Price would be between 40 - 80 dollars, considering drinks.

I travel annually to NYC with friends, simply to experience a wide variety of live music. For me the best area for this is in Greenwich Village, with The Red Lion in Bleecker Street operating one of the very best live music shows. The atmosphere is always good and from circa 8 pm until 2 pm (even later at the... More

Cracking live music on when we were there, a stonking cocktail served in a pint glass (which went down a treat i will let you know) and a great friendly atmosphere with quite a diverse range of people.

Jan 25th 2015. First round and I'm short changed $10 by the guy serving, clearly deliberate. Not impressed at all. Some iffy looking dealings going on in the toilets. The live music was good.

It's a sort of irish pub, where they play live music already early in the night. Food is average for a pub, my chicken bbq sandwich was really nothing special, hamburgers are surely better. I would rather go for a drink than for dinner

Love this place - live music 3 times a day, when we were there on Nov 2nd we saw a great country and western band who were cool about a customer / vocalist joining in (and he was great too) Warm waiting staff, just ace

A Dive...and nothing but a Dive. Dark and Dreary - Complaints of stale beer and dry sliders. With urinals practically on top of the sink (is this legal?) - and depending on your drinking state - the men's room can be a very dangerous place to be. Best to move on...

Good staff and beer and music goes on to 4am. We enjoyed the music and drinks it was busy and the staff still had time to chat and give helpful advice on the drinks selection.

We specifically went here to listen to a friend's band who is from out of state. We have seen him play many times, but there was something about this location that I felt they played and sounded the best ever! The flow of people through here was amazing and it had such a fun, happy vibe to it. We were... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
