Joe's Pub

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.

Joe's Pub is a super cool venue to catch some great live music. The cozy and intimate setting really make for a unique experience. All the seats are communal, so you even may pick up some new friends next time you are there. Keep in mind there is a twelve dollar food or two drink minimum spend per person. The menu offers a great variety of food such as mini lobster rolls, and fried macaroni and cheese for appetizers, or fish and chips, smoked cauliflower cassoulet, and grilled hanger steak for main course. Joe's Pub is truly a one of a kind place for a fantastic night out.
