Had friends that played here to debut original music. Good place to break in. Let's new artist get a chance to display their talent-really good talent too!. Too bad the singers think the singing is all about them instead thinkin it was about the music!!! Could been a hit instead it goes up in smoke!
Worth the Village drink...if no pretense is involved..!

I had the opportunity to play here a few times. Great sounds system and great vibe. I recommend coming here to see live music. Be prepared to pay a cover. Cool upstairs area where you can look down on the bands. Come early to get seating.

- various forms of entertainers have performed there and they all have brought different sounds and great energy to the environment. Seating may present a problem especially if it gets crowded as you may find yourself lost so getting a good seat is paramount to enjoying the whole event. The food is also great my pick are the Catfish taco's.

Went barhopping last week and ended up seeing these really good bands at Kenny's Castaways. Ifyou want to rock out (also there were a bunch of cute guys hanging out) go there on Wednesday, I think the same acts are plaYING. Also, everybody in there were partying like hell, it was almost like aprivate party and NO cover charge! I will definitely be back this week!

I've never had a bad experience here. The drinks are cheap, the bartenders are cute girls / enormously entertaining Irish men, and the bands always sound incredible. The whole place reeks of an honest legitimacy hard to find in Manhattan these days. It's a great place to meet girls or guys, as there are always semi-intoxicated single people stumbling around in here, looking for love. The crowd is never snobby, pretentious or rude - just good people having a good time; it's a very welcoming and comfortable hangout. Definitely worth mentioning was the super hot redheaded waitress (legal?), who deserves to be tipped very well. Did I mention the sound was phenomenal?

Pros: Good Sound, Good Drinks, Bountiful Cleavage

Cons: Only open 7 days a week...

The other night my boys decided to do the Bleecker Street bar hop like we try to do once a week. We made the usual stops but were drawn into Kenny's by the music we heard when we walked by. The drinks were cheap and we drank our fill of jager-bombs and rocked out. Kudos on the sassy bartenders and the hot redhead barely-legal looking waitresses. We've been back as much we can as it's a short stumble to the PATH train on 9th Street. I'd recomend sitting down and getting your drinks sent to you, so you can the bands better.

Contrary to what David thinks, Kenny's doesn't seem to be a great place to meet women--most of them are with dates or the girlfriends of the band. It is, however, full of cute single guys that are easy to meet while listening to some pretty decent music. The best part just might be the tall soundguy--not only does he mix the sound well, he has a great smile. And plenty to smile about, with that nice butt!

Pros: lots of beers, great waitress service

Cons: the occasional creepy guy

A really cool place, tons of beers and great live music almost everynight. The cover is always cheap and there really is no dress code so dont be scared to wear your favorite sweatpants. But like i said in the title, there are lots women there, so a nice shirt is suggested if you want to meet one of them. They are all pretty laid back, and usually drunk, so i say give kennys a try if you A. want to get drunk B. want to meet women C. listen to great music D. Both a and b or E. all of the above.

oh and the service is good, fully staffed with pretty women

I went to Kenny's the other nite with friends and the music was incredible, there was an acoustic singer on stage who blew me away. We stopped in for a drink after work and stayed for several hours. The staff was very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. They seemed to take pride in the place and in the music. All of us enjoyed ourselves immensely and highly reccomend Kenny's to anyone and everyone. Thank you Kenny's. PS Did you know Kenny's has been around for 40 years???

This place is always packed with interesting people and usually decent music.

The drink prices seem standard, service is fast and reliable.

Waitresses never miss a beat, and the new younger looking girl they just got has a killer butt!

Go check it all out!

If so, ask for Cousin Gary, ask him if the King of New York has been around, then ask him for the "Sunday Sauce". Guaranteed you will get a complimentary beverage.

Pros: Casual ambiance, good bands, inexpensive

Cons: ugly girls

I went on Friday Jan 7th. Not many people so you get served quickly. Normal prices for a drink. We saw a very cool cover band, Harder Faster. People danced at the front of the stage to songs like "I Wanna be Sedated" The waitress in the seating area is not friendly at all. The past 2 times I have been there she has been rather rude. The bartenders are cool. It's a nice place to go for drinks.

Kenny's has very friendly staff and some really great bands. Sunday nights are always cool with good, live music. You can kick back and drink with your pals or groove to the bands. There is a dance floor if you are bold. The place is divey but fun.
