Probably the city’s premier small spot for sit-down audiences, Joe’s Pub (named for Joseph Papp, the founder of its parent, the Public Theater) brings in impeccable talent of all genres and origins. While some well-established names play here (Gilberto Gil, Ute Lemper), Joe’s also has loaned its stage to up-and-comers (Christina Courtin and the new-to-America Amy Winehouse). A small but solid menu and deep bar selections will seal the deal for you. Just keep an eye on the drink prices.
