Best Bar With Live Music


Right off the Bedford L stop, Spike Hill is an easy-to-miss but truly unforgettable pub, perfect for a session of cheap drinking and great music every night of the week. Spike Hill has two entrances: one leading to a collection of dark booths where patrons can order typical bar fare like juicy burgers and greasy fries or sit at the bar and nurse one of their many fairly priced beers. Through the entrance just to the left, however, you’re transported into another bar, one with a tiny stage hosting diverse lineups for which “free” is the most common ticket price. You can weave in and out of the rooms on both sides and take full advantage of the usually great music, strong drinks, and fun crowd. Spike Hill is one of those rare spots that makes you feel like your hangover at work the next day is totally worth it.
