This LES haunt started as a tiny, cramped storefront space and has expanded into a multistage downtown fixture. Rockwood books an endless parade of aspirants, some of whom (such Chris Thile, Gabriel Kahane) have gone on to become stars of the singer-songwriter and Americana realms.

If you don't like watching free music then stop reading this review now. If you do, then welcome to the promised land. Rockwood Music Hall is one of those places that has a good vibe and always something new to see. There are 3 stages, none of which are large in scale but all are great venues that offer an intimate setting for you and your friends to view artists. I've been there a few times now and every time I enjoy myself. Depending on the crowd the artist is anticipated to draw, you may have a variety of arrangements (seating or standing). There may come a time when you have to pay for a certain stage but don't sweat, if you cant afford it there are other stages to tap your feet to. This isn't a place you get all dressed up to go to, it's very relaxed and comfortable. They have a full bar and the staff are super friendly. A must see!
