The Resy Guide to New York’s Best Bars and Restaurants with Live Music


One of the best things about living in New York City: there’s no shortage of live entertainment. After many long years of a pandemic that tamped down nightlife and now is (hopefully, tentatively) beginning to wane, we don’t take for granted the absolute joys of listening to music and basking in the collective experience of eating and drinking together, surrounded by strangers and loved ones. So, keeping that in mind, here is our guide to the best bars and restaurants in New York City to watch and listen to live music.

Newly added: Baretto at Fasano, Negril BK, The Sultan Room at The Turk’s Inn, Zaab Zaab (Queens), Caviar Russe, The Friki Tiki, Midnight Plus One, and Tasca.
