55 Bar

55 Christopher St. New York, NY 10014 | West Village | 212-929-9883

Location Description:

Set among the old New York bohemian charm of Greenwich Village, 55 Bar has been serving affordable alcohol and jazz underground to faithful regulars and newcomers alike since 1919, surviving through the prohibition era. With a focus on jazz and blues for guitar, 55 Bar is often a welcoming venue for musicians to try out new material and the no-stress attitude of the performers carries through to the staff and ultimately the customers too. The right mood is set with a warming glow that emanates from the combination of old wood paneling and subtle wall lighting .
