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
