East Village

Arts & Entertainment

Astor Place Theater

434 Lafayette Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.254.4370
http://www.blueman.com

Longtime home of The Blue Man Group, the show is forever changing and evolving. So, if you've seen it before, don't be reluctant to go back a second or third time. A favorite among tourists and natives alike, this is always a fun spot for an entertaining night out.


 

Joe's Pub

425 Lafayette Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.967.7555
http://www.joespub.com

This dinner club is located in the same complex as the public theater. Their musical roster covers a broad range of styles from cabaret, to opera to pop. They even have an occasional stand-up comedian to lighten the mood.


 

KGB

85 East 4th Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.505.3360
http://www.kgbbar.com/

This bar is known first and foremost as a literary haunt. Authors both established and aspiring congregate here en masse. There are many official readings by big names. There are many informal debates regarding the readers with big names.


 

Nuyorican Poets Café

236 East Third Street
New York City, NY 10009
212.505.8183
http://www.nuyorican.org

This East Village institution has been around for over 25 years. Its influence on poetry and spoken works remains considerable. With a tradition of supporting both well-known poets and new talent, their open mic night is still insanely popular.


 

Orpheum

126 Second Avenue
New York City, NY 10003
212.477.2477
http://www.nytheatre.com/nytheatre/orpheum

Home to the long-running Off-Broadway hit, "Stomp," it isn't so much a play as what they prefer to call "a percussion sensation." Featuring lots and lots of intense, energetic pounding, it has been selling to a packed house for ages. This theater was formerly home to "Little Shop of Horrors" and "Oleanna."


 

Public Theater

425 Lafayette Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.539.8500
http://tickets.publictheater.org

Regarded as New York's most prestigious Off-Broadway theater, Joseph Papp, of Shakespeare in the Park fame, has put on legendary shows here for decades. And lucky for us New Yorkers, the tradition lives on.


 

Sunshine Cinema

143 East Houston Street
New York City, NY 10002
212.330.8182
http://www.landmarktheatres.com/market/NewYork/SunshineCinema.html

Film critics nearly agree (with all due deference for spirited esoteric dissension) that Sunshine Cinema is one of Manhattan's finest art film venues. This renovated Yiddish theater shows limited releases of independent and foreign films that might also run at the Angelica or Lincoln Square. Unlike those theaters, however, there is no trade off in the quality of screen, seating or amenities. Sunshine therefore makes for a truly outstanding cinematic experience.


 

Webster Hall

125 East 11th Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.353.1600
http://www.websterhall.com

This multi-level space has become the site for many a rock and alt-rock performance. Recent headliners have included the Hives, Bad Religion and Muse. There is a bar in the back of the room, a stage and not a whole lot else. It's all about the music here.
