One of my favorite place to hang out with friends and have a drink is Landmark Tavern.
I found this place while searching for folk music in New York City, and noticed an entry in the Folk Music Society of New York (www.folkmusicny.org). “Every Monday 8pm to 11pm” – I was happy to see that, since a regularly occurring event doesn’t require much planning.
I dropped by one Monday evening, and had the most wonderful experience. The tavern is an 1868 architecture. It’s beautiful inside, the food is good, and the music wonderful. A group of musicians gather together to have fun, and the guests can watch when they are dining.
As simple as that. What I love about New York is that you can have a slice of every culture right here.
