Sugar Bar

The Sugar Bar Open-Mic

The Sugar Bar supports performers with a House Band. They do not permit CDs of any type. Artists can perform a cappella or with the band, original songs or covers. If you play an instrument please bring your own (except drums & keyboard). There is a $10 cover charge and each artist must sign up at the Sugar Bar at 9:00 pm the evening of the event.

Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar has hosted the best and most dynamic Open Mic for the last 3 years in New York City. During these 3 years they have had many guests and entertainers such as: Stevie Wonder, Raphael Sadiq, Patti La Belle, Dr. Maya Angelou, Queen Latifah, Mario, Michael McDonald, and Roberta Flack to name just a few. Woven between the buffet of celebrity guests and Grammy winning artists are the next generation of powerful performers.

It was always Nick & Val’s intention to bring new artists to the light, and so it is every Thursday night. Having captured their enthusiasm and hearts, these rising artists attend Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar’s Open Mic Night faithfully. Whether performing cover songs or originals, these talented performers know they can rely upon the audience’s response to inform them if they’ve missed a note or delivered flawlessly. The performers have used Open Mic Night as a means to master their live shows, from establishing a memorable stage presence to improving their vocal skills and deliver.

And - the menue is red-hot favorites and the club bustles with excitement and performers all week. This is one of those worst kept secrets of Manhattan - after dark. Valerie Simpson carries on the tradition that meant so much to her late husband Nick Ashley.

Over the last thirty years it has quintupled in size, it has won numerous awards both for its food and for its performances, but it has remained at heart an artists’ café. Singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega started out here, as did Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues. Senator & presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy & attorney-activist William Kunstler have read their poetry; Dr. Oliver Sacks continues to read his prose. Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann presents a monthly Science Series; members of Monty Python & the Royal Shakespeare Company intermittently perform. Cornelia Street now offers some 700 shows a year, two a night, ranging from science to songwriting, from Russian poetry to Latin jazz, from theatre to cabaret. In 1980 Stash Records released the award-winning album, Cornelia Street: The Songwriters Exchange, a collection of songs born at the café.

Opened in the ‘50s in its original location across the street, The Duplex moved to its current digs in the ‘80s and is touted as the city’s oldest cabaret theatre where the likes of Joan Rivers and Woody Allen tested out their early work.

Enjoy an entire evening of Broadway-quality entertainment without the long lines or overpriced tickets. The centerpiece in the downstairs piano bar is undoubtedly the black baby grand piano, played nightly. For patrons with the courage to take center stage, the piano bar hosts impromptu open-mic sessions for singers during the week after 9pm and a comedy open-mic on Wednesdays from 7-9pm.

Upstairs @ The Duplex will provide you with that NYC lounge feel, and late night weekly and monthly parties now reminiscent 0f the West Village of the past.
