The Village Underground is the best place to hear live
music in New York City. Routinely booking acts that usually play
rooms 2 or 3 times the size the Underground gives
the discerning music lover a chance to see some of the worlds
greatest performers in an utterly intimate setting.
We like the description that Citysearch.com has written. Surrounded
by side booths and candle-lit tables, the intimate club's low stage
is bathed in blue light. A step up in the rear--where political
posters on naked brick walls recall the Village's radical bohemian
past--more tables, ample standing room and a long, polished bar
accommodate the crowd. Sight lines and sound are impeccable.
Masterminded by New York City music impresario Noam Dworman,
the "Underground" boasts the most diverse booking policy
in the city - the only thing our acts have in common is their quality.
You might also like to check out our world famous open-mic showcase,
every Sunday night at 9:30. Hosted by Sony records A&R man Ron
Grant, celebrities and amateurs share the microphone on a weekly
basis. Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, and many others
have all been known to drop in.
We work very hard to make the Village Underground the
best music room in the world we hope you enjoy it.
