The Local 269

Map & Directions 269 E. Houston St.
New York, NY 10002
  • Daily 12pm-4am


Village Voice's Description

The Lower East Side music circuit welcomes all types of musicians, from massively successful anthemics to bright-eyed upstarts, and many of 'em get their start at the Local 269. The small space boasts a friendly stage and a well-kept bar, and its flourishes of antique chandeliers and a disassembled, bone-white drum set lend a gothic vibe to the constant revelry. The bar's $10-for-five-shots deal leaves none wanting, as well.

  • Nicole D. on 08/20/11

    Love the clean bathroom! Not many bars in this area have bathrooms that don't smell like hobo.
