Arlene's Grocery

If you're looking for a great rock club with a hip yet intimate vibe, then look no further. Arlene's Grocery is an entertaining rock venue with an interesting history. What once was a Grocery Store has lead well known rock bands such as The Strokes and The Bravery to the record deals that brought them to new heights. While almost all acts that play here are unsigned, Arlene's remains a virtually untapped venue for some serious talent.

This venue has a great sound system as well as cheap drinks and good company. The cover is $8 during the week and $10 on weekends but it is definitely money well spent.
