Sidewalk Café

94 Avenue A New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 212-473-7373

Location Description:

Established singer-songwriters and heartfelt hopefuls strut their stuff (well, as much as singer-songwriters strut) in scheduled shows and open-mic nights at this East Village stalwart. In addition to a steady roster of young acts, the divey Sidewalk is known for its cheap food menu, unusual 24-hour-a-day schedule, and the rows of tables and chairs lined up outside the building--where, during the summer, the post-work crowd downs frozen pink margaritas and cheap beer while watching Avenue A traffic drift by.
