It's basically a little sports bar with a room at the back where they do a comedy show. You need to reserve a place but the admission is free. I think you have to buy a drink but I did anyway. Drinks are not cheap...More

CJ Browne throws a great show here on the third Sunday of every month at 6pm. The show was totally free features comics who have been on television. Great alternative if the cellar sells out of tickets.

Decided last minute to attend the comedy club, free of charge but worth reserving via email and they accept donations at the end. There were five comedians, some great, all decent, and the half price margaritas were delicious.

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.
