Went to Bitter End Friday night to watch some bands. Music was great, they had a good selection of beer and the staff was friendly. Yes they was a cover, but that is expected with bands playing. Being from SC the price of drinks was...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

The full bar. Always a lot of people. Whenever there's a band performing it's extremely loud there. But the environment is awesome overall.

This place had a good vibe to it. Lots of tables and chairs to sit and watch live bands. $10 cover on a Friday night. Great service! Expensive drinks.

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.
