Time Out says

Opened in 1969, B.Y.G. boasts three dimly lit floors connected by a spiral staircase, the wood-panneled walls covered in music posters, framed artist photos and customer-drawn graffiti. Stacked up behind the register area at the front entrance are piles upon piles of CDs and records. When the bar first opened it was primarily a live music venue, but these days the main ground floor is exclusively a music cafe, with occasional live music performances limited to the 2nd and basement floors. Positioned at every table on the main floor are slips of paper and stubby pencils where you can write down song requests and hand them in to your wait staff. Be warned though that the focus here is Rock and Jazz, so you'll almost certainly be given a look of disdain if you request Taylor Swift, followed by the assurance that they don't have that stuff here. But any classic rock request you can think of will be gladly accepted and is surely somewhere in their stockpiles.
