From happy hours to drink specials to just plain old good prices, New York's rife with watering holes that won't dilute your bank account.
Since 1999, the Slipper Room has been instrumental in reviving—perhaps even creating—the burlesque community in New York City, for the first eleven years as the cozy, intimate cocktail lounge it once was, and now as the two-level burlesque theater and bar and it's become. James H...167 Orchard Street
Don’t really feel like leaving the comfort of your own living room for the evening, but still want to listen to some great live music?

Wood-clad and dimly-lit, the Barrow Street Ale House is a bit of yesteryear (well, yestercentury, really) in the West Village.15 Barrow Street

Now over four score old, Arthur's still provides the same jazzy environment--and the music to match--that it has since 1937. The style of the live music offerings waver between jazz and blues and there's never a cover. The two drink minimum is more for show than anything else, as...57 Grove Street
