It’s no surprise that a city like New York has attracted the construction of some of the most legendary music venues worldwide. From legacy stages like Madison Square Garden and the Beacon Theater to newer arenas like the Barclays Center or Citi Field, New York is unquestionably a destination for the globe’s most popular artists, athletes and performers. But where to go for those in pursuit of a more intimate showing of New York’s incredibly high bar for talent?  Peppered about Manhattan and Brooklyn are some smaller scale gems.



Since 2005, Rockwood Music Hall, located at 196 Allen St. on The Lower East Side, has been showcasing up and coming locals in addition to national and international touring acts across a variety of genres. The warm, dimly lit rustic décor and friendly staff provide an ideal setting for a great night of music. With a near-perpetual rotation of acts across 3 unique stages, finding one’s groove is assured.



Opening in April 2017, and with both a past and upcoming calendar of engagements by both rising young talent and established Indie royalty, 1800-capacity Brooklyn Steel, the newest and coolest edition to the Bowery Presents’ family of world-class venues is quickly drawing even more attention to the thriving Williamsburg community. With its high ceiling warehouse vibe and impeccable sound that is reminiscent of it’s larger sister-venue Terminal 5, Brooklyn Steel has already established itself as the best place to see an Indie show in NYC.  



For the Jazz heads, Smoke Jazz & Supper Club, located on the Upper West Side at 106th and Broadway, serves up sets of everything from Bebop to Fusion in addition to renowned chef Patricia Williams’ creative brunch and dinner menus. After the kitchen closes, a late night jam session commences and otherworldly cocktails take the spotlight alongside some of the best musicians in town. With food this good and playing so masterful, it is no wonder that reservations are very much recommended for this small but elegant space.
