Tucked just below an art gallery on the corner of the Lower East Side and Chinatown is Home Sweet Home, a dank underground alley bar with a small performance space in the back. Home Sweet Home would be aptly named if your idea of home were a macabre dungeon with all the accouterments, including a ton of dead animals. It’s taxidermy, sure. But there’s a darker edge to Home Sweet Home. When the bar opened in 2009, it quickly established itself as a punk and metal spot with an outre edge. Hosting the final run of the revered Wierd nights--put on by the record label of the same name--helped to cement that legacy. Now, with residencies from DJs like Jonathan Toubin, the joint seems to bow toward a reputation for sweaty dance parties. Crowded, musty, and always a good time--or at least a time that's interesting. --Dale Eisinger
