Living Room - Closed

154 Ludlow St. New York, NY 10002 | Lower East Side | 212-533-7237

Location Description:

The Living Room's bartender describes their clientele as "low-key" before explaining that Keane dropped by for a secret performance earlier that week; a month prior, Justin Timberlake stopped in for singer-songwriter Matt Morris's set. This sort of thing just happens around here, at an L.E.S. mainstay as casual as the name implies. Here, you'll find two acoustic performance areas: the back space (a cafe-table-cluttered dwelling of faded browns, oranges, and maroons) and Googie's Lounge (a tiny, milky-blue room with a white grand piano at its center). Both contain aspiring Norah Joneses.
