Best live Brazilian band in New York City – Went there on a Tuesday night and was pleasantly surprised to catch the group Brasil Live with the most amazing Brazilian singers I've ever seen.
This Brazilian band is made up of the best pros in NY and they play all the cool Brazilian music hits by my favorite artists. Seu Jorge, Ivete, Sangalo, Tim Maia, Jorge Benjor... you name it, they have on their repertoire. The energy is so high up there, people can't help it but to stand up, dance and party all night.
The Village Underground is located right across the street from the Blue Note on West 3rd street so it's right in the middle of Village and super easy to get to. I was staying at the Hostelling International uptown Manhattan and it was a quick subway ride home. I highly recommend going there on a Tuesday night for an amazing night of Brazilian music fun.
I Love This Place – I used to be a regular at the owners old place Cafe Wha, but I love this new place much better. The music is the same fantastic quality, but the place is nicer and more comfortable, it's not as expensive, and the drinks are way better. Also many of my old favorite Cafe Wha musicians like Mike Davis, Elan, and Cheryl Pepsi Riley come down to perform with the band. I've brought a ton of friends here, and we've never had a bad time.
An Inexpensively Good Time – I've been going to the VU pretty much every Friday night for the past year and a half and I never cease to have a good time whether I come alone or with friends. I dance, drink, eat and I adore the band and love the music the DJ plays during the band's breaks. Even on the nights I can't make it out, I still watch the show online. Anyone looking to have a good time should definitely consider coming here.
AMAZING MY FAVORITE!!! – I have been living in NYC for bit now and I have to say I love to go out and explore the scene.
I came across Village Underground by accident, now I go there all the time. The martinis are amazing and very fairly priced. THE SERVICE IS AMAZING, i've had different waiters and they were all nice, which is a rare thing in NYC. The DJ is awesome, I have been there for my birthday and a bunch of other times with friends and I keep going back. You can get a table without a reservation if you get there early I they don't make you by bottles. Which lets face it....at times it's a good thing. In the end you end up with a fair tab and NOTHING BUT A GREAT TIME!!! Highly recommended!
My New Favorite Place – I come here to dance sometimes on Saturdays, but my favorite time to go is during the week. The band is unbelievably good, and they're funny and friendly too.
Favorite Club! – I have been to many clubs and this is BY FAR my favorite! The music is great, decor is cool, mixed crown, yummy martinis, good food, nice staff...the list goes on and on! The black and white movies complete the experience and make it so cool! Love it so much!
great music – Have been going to this place for a while and I have to say I LOVE IT!!!! It just has everything I love. I have to say I love the fact that I can reserve a table. Gypse the party host is so easy to deal with. She isn't snooty like so many other places. I could go on and on...And really that fact that I don't have to buy a bottle to reserve is the best!! Can't wait to go back!!!
THAT'S HOT!!! – Best night of my life!!!! Danced my a$$ off!! The DJ was pumpin!!!! We got a table reservation with no hassle at all and had it all night. The guys at the door didn't have that typical attitude you get from NYC bouncers. They have a great martini menu too. So much to choose from... oh i almost forgot the best part. They have an upstairs too so if you have those friends that don't like the club scene there is a room upstairs with comfy couches to just chill one and talk. so everyone is happy :)
best night EVER!!!! – I love the Village Underground!!! The hostess Gypsee is so sweet and so quick to help. NY is filled with so many places you never know what place is good but this place is GREAT!!! From the door men to the bar MEN!!! I sent Gypsee an email and she got back to me (NO LIE) within 5 min!! by email!! and we had everything set up right away. They really take care of you at this place. My drinks were great and I didn't have to wait an hour for them either!!! I will def. be back!!!THANK YOU GYPSEE!!!
