Marie’s Crisis Cafe is the place to be if you want to experience a different type of scene in New York City!
Have you ever wanted just just walk into a bar and sing as loud as your lungs can handle? Now, imagine doing that at a cool neighborhood bar in New York, where many other talent voices can sing along!
Located in the West Village, in Manhattan, Marie’s Crisis Cafe attracts a bit of everything. From locals, to artists and the coolest gay crowd, you’ll definitely have a great and interesting time there!
“If you like how people in musicals can go without warning from normal conversation to singing their hearts out, this is the West Village bar for you.
One minute, the barmaid is pulling you a pint of Bass, the next she’s belting out “Me and Bobby McGee.”
We have to emphasize that people there are usually Broadway lovers and know all the shows and lyrics!
It’s not a place you need to worry about how you look today. So be free to be yourself, have fun, appreciate everyone around you and…let go!
Do observe the sign that says it’s prohibited to film or take pictures of presentations. This is a place to have fun and enjoy, not to be behind a camera capturing everything. Besides, they do appreciate the privacy of not sharing what happens there. Not everyone likes to be broadcasted on social, right?
Be polite and respectful while there!
Oh! They are a cash only bar, so do be sure to have cash on you!
And believe it or not, Marie’s Crisis Cafe has no mirror or soap in the bathroom, so go prepared or bring your own. No, this is not a joke.
The West Village is one of our favorite neighborhoods in the city, so explore it with love!
For one of the top minimalistic Brazilian fashion brands, go to Uma.
And last, go to Sofar Sounds to see what secret music gig they are hosting in the neighborhood. It’s a fantastic plan for a laid back, bring your own bottle night where upcoming artists singing to a small, private group!
