Cake Shop

152 Ludlow St. New York, NY 10002 | Chinatown | 212-253-0036

Location Description:

From 9am to 4am, Cake Shop serves warm coffee and the sweetest indie rock in town. You can take your music live downstairs or enjoy excellently curated mp3s upstairs over one of the bakery's winning cupcakes. The cozy atmosphere, warmly attributed to trailer-type wood-paneled walls, and invitingly dingy performance space arrayed with holiday lights gives this hipster haven a particular chic that perhaps has to do more with the pastries than the tunes. Here you can have your music and eat it too.
