Kenny's Castaways - Closed

157 Bleecker St.
New York, NY 10012
You'll know Kenny's Castaways when you see it. The outside looks like a pirate ship; the inside looks like the contents of that pirate ship (including a stray sea bass) blasted onto the walls. In its golden age, this legendary Greenwich Village mainstay housed the Boss's first New York show and was frequented by both Aerosmith and the New York Dolls. Few modern rock stars (unless you're counting Phish) can trace their roots back to Kenny's these days, but nonetheless, the bar and its incongruous crowd of NYU students, oldie locals, and bar-hopping Bleecker Street mateys are always willing to give rock 'n' roll hopefuls a shot.
