Thursday Night (April 1st) is Gamenight!

On one Thursday of every month at 8:00, on the beautiful red-curtained stage of our monthly home, the Slipper Room (at the corner of Orchard and Stanton on the Lower East Side), Neil and Clams bring you their classic guessing game that has been a live downtown hit for over three years! A panel of NYC's nightlife favorites (from burlesquers to bloggers) join forces and attempt to guess the occupation of regular New Yorkers and the identity of fabulous celebrity mystery guests! Past mystery guests have included Martha Plimpton, Zach Galifianakis, Mo Rocca and Randy Jones, to name just a few. Who knows who you'll see next month! And every month contestants are drawn from our audience, so you just might get to come up and play the game for fabulous prizes from our sponsors!

See the show Time Out calls New York's Number One game night for under $7, and the New York Post, Village Voice, Next Magazine Gawker and more all recommend! You don't even need to know the secret knock to get in on this Speakeasy's underground action.

Gameshow Speakeasy, at the Slipper Room, 167 Orchard Street @ Stanton (5-minute walk from the East Village Apartments).

NYC Jazz Nights - Ari Hoenig March Venues

Ari Hoenig is surely one of the busiest players in the local clubs, and the drummer has kept up a steady pace of releases as a band leader since 2004. But you really need to hear Hoenig live to understand what a scarily advanced musician he is.

New York – The City with Many Hues

Among the most popular tourist destinations in the world, New York has a very unique feel to it. And anyone who has been to this city would not have missed noticing that the city offers an experience that hardly any other city of the world can.

Not only is the city a very well-known commercial hub of the United States, with many global brands having their presence here, New York balances this aspect with its set of parks and various cultural avenues. New York City’s culture has been built gradually over centuries specially the twentieth century and has been greatly affected by massive immigration into this city.


With its open, unbiased and promising environment, people from distinct nationalities, cultures and communities have set up their home here. A routine walk through the streets of New York will bring you in touch with people of very distinct cultures living here with ease. This is among the very special characteristics of this city that it embraces people of all cultures with warmth.


Personally, I cannot forget my first visit to New York City. Just as we entered the city in the evening, I was smitten by the energy, charm and verve of this city with its colorful people returning from their work in the evening. As the evening progressed, I could see throngs of New Yorkers walking through the streets heading towards parks, clubs, restaurants, theatres and other places of interest. I came across many people of Asian origin manning the cabs and running the various roadside counters reminding me of the multicultural identity of the city.


And of course among the best aspects of New York City is its very vibrant market that brings to you the best merchandise from around the world in the form of the most exquisite showrooms sprinkled around the streets of New York City.

And then towards the night, while you can see many Afro-American citizens thronging the streets for some fun, dance and romance, visitors like me retire for rest to their hotels or the many vacation rental properties that the city offers.
