Village Voice's Description

The painted, floating heads of Bob Dylan, Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, and Stevie Wonder stare at you from the wall behind the bar at the Bitter End. They are the ghosts and previous performers of this famous, half-century-old live music/comedy venue. The Bitter End books a collective of alternative rockers, some more rockin' than others. Regardless, there is a YouTube video of Lady Gaga--before she was gaga--howling in front of the brick-wall-backed stage. Perhaps there are more legends to come.

    Since 1962, this Greenwich Village famed club has hosted some of the biggest names' earliest shows: Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder, and Joni Mitchell included.

    Grab a beer, sit in the back left corner, and enjoy the show.

  • Mike H. on 03/01/10

    This is self explanatory. The Bitter End is one of the most fantastic music hangouts in NYC on one of the best streets in all of NYC too.

  • JP F. on 02/28/10

    Love this place, played here a bunch of time, great music. Drink specials for the musicians is great.

  • Meg D. on 02/16/13

    One of my least favorite places to see a show in NYC. Ridiculous drink minimum, and people always talk through the sets.
