The draw at this beloved West Village institution ain't the drinks—cheap beer, vodka highballs—it's the old-school piano-bar experience. Belt out a Broadway tune with the rest of the bar, and keep an eye peeled for legendary pianist Dexter Watson, who's been a fixture at Marie's for ages.

The Man on the Street

Toby Keith sings a song called "I Love This Bar" Well I don't suppose Toby will ever make it to Marie's Crisis, but hell "I Love This Bar" On a five day visit to New York we ended the night here three times. It's gay but Hetro friendly and possibly the best Piano Bar in the world. Broadway sing-a-long with outstanding solos from time to time. And if you don't like show-tunes you can pop into the blues bar next door. What's not to like ?
