Head over to The Griffin to Michael Fredo's Wednesday night party. They have a great show and an open bar from 8-9:30. Free admission too. Michael Fredo with The Benny Reid Ensemble is a great Jazz/ Ratpack show. 50 Gansevoort @ Greenwich

This little jewell in the Village is quite interesting. The show on Saturday started at midnight, great music, the place was full but not super crowded. You can get a table if it's not too late, no rush, no pressure, no such thing as

Pros: A very high..."thumbs up"!! The atmosphere was very inviting & relaxing. The music wasn't so loud that I couldn't enjoy what I was hearing. "2 thumbs up"!!

Recently, my friends and I went to 55 Bar. We had a blast! We didn't expect to have such a good time. The atmosphere was dark, but it got us in the mood for good jazz music. The bartender was sociable as well as the other patrons.

The 55Bar on Christopher Street is a prime example of old Greenwich Village panache, dark brown atmosphere, friendly charming bartender and two music scenes a night at six and ten.The early show is particularly groovy, a two-drink minimum
