The city’s best hoofers throw down at Showman’s weekly tap-dancing showcase—perhaps the only such game in town. The rest of the week, you can hear live jazz and blues, or mingle with postshow revelers filing in from the nearby Apollo Theater. A two-drink per-set minimum offsets the cheap, or nonexistent cover (free Mon–Thu; Fri, Sat $5). Nurse well drinks and standard suds like Heineken and Corona, all served in chilled wineglasses.
