  • B.B. King Blues Club & Grill

    B.B. King Blues Club & Grill

    237 W. 42nd St. New York, NY 10036
    212-997-4555

    http://www.bbkingblues.com Robert Johnson sold his soul for prodigious skill on the guitar. B.B. King was already pretty good, so he ended up with... a Midtown mega club? Just kidding, don't worry about B.B. King's soul, it's fine. B.B. King's Blues Club and Grill actually plays host to plenty of great shows than span a variety of eras and genres. Occasionally, forever-awesome names play B.B. King's (like, say, Al Green) and if you can navigate the block from Times Square without having a panic attack, perhaps you'll appreciate the club's weirdly unifying allure. Said charm earned the "Best club to sit with tourists named Sven and see forgotten bands" from this very publication. Due to its proximity to the teeming, glowing epicenter of NYC-tourism, the venue was conceived to endure a constant barrage and thus provide a steady stream of musical entertainment. The day-to-day talent involves cover bands, soul-tributes, and Beatles-themed brunches. Since it's in Midtown, B.B. King’s is expensive, oversized, dripping in neon, and the attached restaurant-venue Lucille's doesn't serve the most "authentic" BBQ. However, the Harlem blues and gospel revues play the best regular gigs, and just because the longhairs have become gray hairs doesn’t mean they aren't still killer performers. The namesake guitar legend is in his late 80s now, but he still performs and occasionally drops in on his club. --Alex Spoto More >>

  • BAM Cafe

    BAM Cafe

    30 Lafayette Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11217
    718-636-4100

    http://www.bam.org A church-like space, BAM Cafe is often celebrated more for its events than its food. The always-packed place plays host to musicians, comedians, authors, and anyone else worthy of getting on stage in front of Brooklyn’s pickiest art seekers. That’s not to say the food isn’t good (and affordable), though. There’s a pretty decent burger and some nice ravioli, and the bartenders serve up some standard drinks with good attitudes. But, really, the entertainment and the atmosphere are the real reasons to come. The seating is first come, first serve, but it’s also free. A full schedule is available at the cafe's website, and new acts are always being added. --Shane Barnes More >>

  • Barbes

    Barbes

    376 9th St. Brooklyn, NY 11215
    718-965-9177

    http://www.barbesbrooklyn.com The neon-lit Hotel D'Orsay sign looming over the back room's stage (on which alt-lit freshmen air out their slam poetry and Brazilian bongo kings groove impromptu) is not the only attitude at this Park Slope hideaway. The burly bartender is blunt and stone-faced, but is happy to break out rarely imbibed aperitifs, and teach you the way Ernest and Ezra drank Pernod and Ricard in Paris back in their literary day. Try a Barbes, basically a Cosmo with dashes of Chambord and Pernod. Stay for the band, and you won't be disappointed; this is one of the finest world music venues in town. More >>

    Beacon Theatre

    2124 Broadway New York, NY 10023
    212-465-6500

    http://www.beacontheatre.com The Beacon, an old vaudeville theater that dates back to 1928, presents performances that range from productions of A Christmas Story to the annual two-week residency of the Allman Brothers in March. Though tastes run in an adult contemporary veinaRyan Adams, Sting, and Tori Amos have all played hereathe theater is the only major spot on the Upper West Side for big-name live music and it may be one of the few venues in the city to be registered as a national historic landmark.

  • The Bell House

    The Bell House

    149 7th St. Brooklyn, NY 11215
    718-643-6510

    http://www.thebellhouseny.com Like many new Brooklyn venues these days, the Bell House was birthed out of a '20s warehouse. Naturally, a space this big lends itself to a variety of joyously disparate events (i.e. the Harry Potter Yule Ball, Super Japanese Game Show Melee, Radio Happy Hour) punctuated by a mix of veteran songwriters (recently John Oates) and sizable indie-pop acts (Beach House and such). The Bell House's key decorations are antiquated, sinuous chandeliers and a wood panel branded with a buffalo, both of which are indicative of the venue's tattered, vaguely Western, Prohibition-era aesthetic. Also notable is "Fight Club," a monthly craft-beer-and-cheese-tasting event. More >>

  • Blue Note

    Blue Note

    131 W. 3rd St. New York, NY 10012
    212-475-8592

    http://www.bluenote.net As spontaneous, free, and chaotic as live jazz can be, there's a certain decorum at the Blue Note. To enter, one must reserve a spot in the bruise-blue and mirror-decorated room at either the bar (roughly $20, depending) or a table ($30, same deal). There, you can order up some filet mignon or pan-roasted salmon, and sip wine while chaos enfolds on the bandstand maybe four feet away. It's impressively authentic here: the jazz veterans who sit in each night are less than six degrees of separation from the greats, i.e. Miles Davis or Herbie Hancock, and six feet from your table.

  • Bowery Ballroom

    Bowery Ballroom

    6 Delancey St. New York, NY 10002
    212-533-2111

    http://www.boweryballroom.com The Bowery Ballroom is generally regarded as the city's best music venue. It has three floors, three bars, an intimate 550-person capacity, balconies for the mosh-pit-adverse, and status as the most popular destination for rising indie-rockers. It's also the place where "special guests" (such as David Byrne!) drop by, and more established acts (such as Nine Inch Nails!) treat their fans to "secret" shows. While the Ballroom now has a Brooklyn clone (the Music Hall of Williamsburg) with sleeker finishes, swankier bars, and better couches, the original club's homey charm is something that can't be replicated.

  • Bowery Poetry Club

    Bowery Poetry Club

    308 Bowery New York, NY 10012
    212-614-0505

    http://www.bowerypoetry.com Bob Holman, the man who helped popularize slam poetry in the city, founded the Bowery Poetry Club, so you can feel quite confident that the acts inside aren't just a bunch of wannabe beatniks. Spoken-word poets, self-conscious rappers, amplified rockers, and tawdry burlesque acts frequent the stage in the back, while arty regulars hang out in the club's macabre, red-chandelier-equipped cafe. It also has wi-fi. More >>

  • Brooklyn Bowl

    Brooklyn Bowl

    61 Wythe Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11211
    718-963-3369

    http://www.brooklynbowl.com Basically, Brooklyn Bowl is the Pimp My Ride of music venues. It has a 16-lane bowling alley with big-ass HD TV screens situated above the pins. "Rock. And Roll. Fries" and the "Really Sloppy Joe" are on the Blue Ribbon-supplied menu. And they book wonderfully odd and unexpected novelty shows such as Lebowski Fest, the Regional Air Guitar Championships, and Snoop Dogg. Most of the time, however, the Bowl brings out the latest in indie rock, punctuated by seasonal specialties like Questlove's weekly DJ residency. Their couches are really comfortable, too. More >>

  • Brooklyn Bridge Park

    Brooklyn Bridge Park

    1 Main St. Brooklyn, NY 11201
    212-639-9675

    http://www.brooklynbridgepark.org In Brooklyn’s tiny DUMBO neighborhood is one of the city's most diverse (and smallest) parks, offering up programs of jazz, classical, and countless other events. And though there’s something for everyone--from Shakespeare to festivals of trumpet music to free movies to activities for children--the best part about this spot is the view. Lower Manhattan hardly looks as good except when you're sprawled out on a great lawn with a bottle of white wine at hand, fronted by the Metropolitan Opera or a great rock band. Hurricane Sandy couldn’t even squash the spirit here. The famous riverside carousel emerged from the flooded water unharmed. --Dale Eisinger More >>
