We arrived around 8:30 on Friday night, just in time to get a great table. The place is quaint, and the vibe was just as great. The crowd seemed to be there to enjoy music, and not drink itself to oblivion. There were times when...More

Coming of age during the heady folk and rock-filled days of the 1960s, I have long been aware of the place the Bitter End, and other long-lost New York City venues have had in the development of modern folk, rock, jazz and blues music. During...More

I heard about the Bitter End for years. I've visited NY 10 - 15 times and it's my first visit. Definitely worth the stop.

All across the board average! Did not enjoy and seemed slightly mediocre to me. Rules are draconian especially for newbies.

I've been to this music venue that has been at the same place since the 1970s on another occasion. It has a $10 cover charge on most days, but it's worth it for the quality bands that can be heard on this stage. It's a...More

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
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

Hi, I don't think so because it's a licensed bar and drinking age is 21 in NY.
