This is a really comfortable small venue to see up and coming music groups. Bar prices are not exorbitant. And service is good.

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.

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.
