B.B.’s joint plays host to one of the widest varieties of music in town: Cover bands and soul tributes fill the gaps between big-name bookings. The Harlem Gospel Choir buffet brunch, on Sundays, raises the roof; another regular buffet brunch presents Beatles cover bands (occasionally including family favorite Bubble Do Beatles).

Intimate venue in Times Square area that hosts a vast variety of musical acts.  Named after blues legend, BB King, the bar and grill and stage are located down a set of stairs.  The sound is great and it can get quite loud. Bands that I have seen here include The Ohio Players, King Diamond, and Ministry.  The bar is tough to get to on full nights, so get your drink on early and enjoy the rock or funk or gospel or whatever they have that night.
