This was our third visit to the Comedy Cellar. It’s a tradition whenever we are in the city. They pack you in that space but it’s worth it.

Hilarious string of comedians .. including the host. Friendly service. So glad we were not seated right in front of the mic. Tight seating. Will definitely go back.

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.
