Ready for a Greenwich Adventure? How About CBGB?

Punk Rock Got Its Start in the Iconoclastic Bar CBGB

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.
