Looking for something to do that is quintessentially ‘Village’? Then you must check out “CBGB.” Located at 315 Bowery at Bleeker Street, it is where you end up after taking a scenic walk down the historic Bleeker Street.
Mostly a bar, back in the day CBGB made a low risk bet when it gave a venue to the ‘not-too-good’ punk-rock band, the Ramones, and therefore launched a revolution in music. Some say that CBGB is the birthplace of the “modern hipster,” and who knows? Maybe they’re right.
So if you have a hankering for being smushed together in a less than comfortable space; perhaps having a beer or two spilled on your clothing; or feel a deep-seated need to visit one of the most horrific restrooms in town, then don’t hesitate to make a visit. Not up for such and adventure? Try the downstairs space which affords its patrons a less ‘avant-garde’ experience.
