Joe's Pub at The Public Theatre
425 Lafayette Street (Near Astor Place)
Information: (212) 539 8778 /

 Arguably, the hippest, hottest nightspot in town for live entertainment.

 Joe's Pub opened on October 16th 1998 (with a concert performed by writer/recording artist Carl Hancock Rux  who replaced
an ailing  Audra McDonald.The New York Times wrote "... But Joe's Pub is a much less lofty enterprise, carved as it is from
ground-floor back-office space at The Public Theater. The $2.35 million club is the result, in part, of a construction and renovation
grant to the Public from city capital  funds that includes refurbishment of the Delacorte Theater in Central Park...." 

The versatile club's programming is idiosyncratic: from ethnic music ensembles to spoken-word artists to the most promising young
musical-theater performers on the contemporary scene, The ever-changing roster has generated an after-hours theatricality all its own.
The Pub is known as one of New York City’s live showcase venues, catering to an eclectic mix of musical genres.
The defining feature of Joe's Pub – its extraordinary variety of world clkass artists.
