Kenny's Castaways

Map & Directions 157 Bleecker St.
New York, NY 10012


Village Voice's Description

You'll know Kenny's Castaways when you see it. The outside looks like a pirate ship; the inside looks like the contents of that pirate ship (including a stray sea bass) blasted onto the walls. In its golden age, this legendary Greenwich Village mainstay housed the Boss's first New York show and was frequented by both Aerosmith and the New York Dolls. Few modern rock stars (unless you're counting Phish) can trace their roots back to Kenny's these days, but nonetheless, the bar and its incongruous crowd of NYU students, oldie locals, and bar-hopping Bleecker Street mateys are always willing to give rock 'n' roll hopefuls a shot.

    Be nice to the bouncers. Tip your waitstaff well. Order some appetizers and listen to some pretty neat music. + google how famous this place really is if you don't already know

  • Mike H. on 03/01/10

    Another great music hangout. Not on the same level as Bitter End but it is a few doors down from it and it happens to be a solid bar. However, they let any band and their mom play there. No bueno.
