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.

This Astor Place venue is a great place to stop in for a concert. It's located in the Public building, which is also home to a niche theater (where Hamilton got it's start). It's intimate but the acoustics are great, and the shows are relatively inexpensive. Unless you come with a big group you'll be seated at a communal table, and the shows have a food and drink minimum. The drinks are good, and the food is tasty but the portions are super small for the price (not surprising for a music venue, but still). Be prepared to rush out at the end of your show, there are performances back to back and they clear the venue pretty quickly.
