Sounds good to me – I love seeing shows at The Living Room. I'm a bit of an audiophile so when I go to see music, an enthusiastic performance is not always enough. The Living Room seems to be one of a short list of local venues that have attentive sound guys that make bands sound amazing. The main room has a great natural sound for their genres, and the live mixes are consistently good. Really great room...
Best Place for Live Music – The music is always amazing here! I can’t say there’s ever been a time when I’ve been disappointed with the live music at The Living Room. It’s small and intimate so you can always see the performers and hear the music without having to squeeze through a crowd to reach the front. The acoustics in the room are phenomenal. Definitely one of my favorite spots in NYC to go have a few drinks and listen to some heartwarming tunes.
Finally found Folk 'n' Bluegrass – I finally found a place in NYC where I can feel like a kid a little bit. Some of the acts that blow through this place remind me of some of the tunes my Dad and his friends used to play at family bbqs. I grew up on bluegrass music, and when they get it here, they got it HERE. The bartenders even make a sweet tea fire fly vodka sour. If anything could have made my favorite drink better, it was sour mix. Absolutely brilliant crafty bartenders doing what's best: being innovative.
New York's best venue – The Living Room’s atmosphere is homey and very comfortable. The low stage gives off an intimate feeling, which I personally loved. The staff was awesome and their photo booth helped me remember (most of) my night. I would definitely go back.
Warm and Welcoming – Everything about the living room is warm and welcoming. The people there are hearty, down to earth, and genuinely unassuming. The artists I’ve seen there have always been captivating. The low stage makes it super intimate too. The cute waitress that worked there on Thursday night didn't hurt either.
Best music venue out there – Really cool music, a low key atmosphere, two floors for performances and a Photobooth! The Living Room is the place to go on the lower east side. A friend of mine told me about it, so I went to go check it out and since then I’ve fallen in love with the place.
Great place on Ludlow – The Living Room is the my fave place on Ludlow to hang out. Pianos isn’t so bad, just the guys that hangout there are kinda pushy. I’d really prefer The Living Room because it’s low key. I like that you can talk with your friends and not have to deal with annoying people. The staff is super friendly. I wish I lived closer so that I can be a regular.
favorite hang out on ANY night – It’s a Monday night and you have no idea where to go? Go to the Living Room on the Lower East Side. It’s guaranteed to have awesome bands playing every night with drinks at a chill, cozy bar. I’ve loved coming to the Living Room for two years now and I’m never disappointed. There are always really fun and unique people to chat with at the bar, and the staff is always friendly. DEF recommend coming here!!
LR tickles my fancy! – A true “hidden treasure” among the masses. It’s unfortunate that this gem is sandwiched between frat jocks and hipsters. The night I went there was no cover, which means the money you earn can stay in your pocket! They have a decent drink menu at a cheaper price than most other places. I found out that you can even find drink specials via Twitter. Five bucks got me a beer and a shot! Plus, I didn’t want to stand for a show and they had decent seating. There should be more places like this.
Great place to chill out! – My second time at the Living Room was even better than the first! I brought some friends with me and they were impressed with the chill atmosphere and the quality of the bands. Not to mention the staff was very nice and they seemed to have a genuine love for their jobs. It was a little crowded but it never got uncomfortable. I’ll definitely be making another trip with even more friends!
