Why locals love it

The space has a rich history and is considered a gem of the East Village. It has served as a 1920s speakeasy, a movie house, a jazz club, and a theater where comedians such as Billy Crystal got their start. These days performances run the gamut from magic shows, comedy, improv theater, and burlesque.

Why you should visit it

If you want to know more about the theatre and its history, strike up a conversation with the owner who can tell you some interesting facts (Frank Sinatra and John Coltrane performed here). With many old venues in NYC shutting down due to rents increases, don't miss your chance to see this one.

Special tip

The building is also home to the Museum of the American Gangster.
