Many ghosts haunt the sodden crossroads known as Sheridan Square: poets, painters, firebrands. But only at 55 Bar can you imbibe alongside a living legend, weekly gigging jazz-rock guitarist Mike Stern. Other top boppers and bluesmen swing in the narrow basement boîte nightly. All shows have a two-drink minimum, but never fear: The bartenders know how to mix. If you want to talk, sit in back so the head-bobbing jazzbos don’t shush you.

Every tourist who wants to get a real NYC experience that is cheap but the REAL DEAL, should head down to the 55BAR. Real fine sounding jazz, blues, Latin vocals and instrumentals.
Hope the fire on the roof yesterday did no damage to you. Margot Avery on Facebook took some spectacular fotos of the blaze from her apartment across the park. You could look it up.
