    Bar in the front, live music in the back. Arlene's Grocery has kept LES local music on the map with seven weekly nights of music, including live music rock and roll karaoke nights. Always a party.

    Had an awsome time in this place, great music by (to me) unknown bands like Random acts of blindness which were actually very good. Vibe in here is second to none!

    Such a funny concept to take a grocery store and turn that into a bar and a live house. Live house part requires $10 cover but is good for all night

    Karaoke night is a blast whether you're a participant or spectator, and even if your voice isn't as pristine as your fellow karaoke-ers, the band will have you sounding at least somewhat like a star. Read more

    It's a wonderfully gritty Lower East Side music venue. I'm always happy when I can catch a show there.

    Best dive bar on the LES. After the rock show, the left side of the bar turns into a fun dance party, perfect place to end your night.

    There are few things more fun than seeing your friend’s band play at Arlene’s. Maybe singing karaoke to said friend’s band on Monday nights is more fun.

    Fun spot with usually good live music. Sometimes too loud, and frequently overcrowded, but worth visiting to at least check it out.

    Aside from being an awesome bar and rock club, it is also the home of the "Lombardi Case 1975" - one of the best interactive theater experiences in New York City. Go see it!

    Intimate (tiny room) venue, but great sound and great staff. Door security was personable, friendly. Bar staff at street level was cool.

    What a great venue. Inexpensive. Lots of space and seating. And a large bar by the stage. Excellent.

    Cool venue, nice staff, just not usually crowded, which affects the atmosphere. Generally good music, mixed in w/ pop covers you might want to avoid (maybe that's why the bar is separate).
