Arlene's Grocery was converted from a bodega of the same name over a decade ago. It has built oodles of street cred since then, having booked the Strokes pre-fame, hosted the sad Dashboard Confessional guy, and appeared in a Michael Cera movie. Despite (or maybe because of) these neat tidbits, the Grocery isn't frequented by the same show-hounds that attend the Cake Shop and Pianos venues nearby. Hard rock and pop-punk acts tend to dominate the performance space here, but the Grocery's gloomy Butchery Bar (yup, converted from a butchery) still attracts the more general, nomadic L.E.S. crowd on the weekends.
