New York City - Recommend restaurants with good live entertainment / music?

Hi Chowhounders,

I am looking for a Manhattan or Brooklyn restaurant that has some fun live entertainment or live music.

I am pretty open to types; belly dancing, flamenco dancing, live folk music, opera singing, string quartet, Irish music sessions, you name it.

I have been surfing the internet, and it's oddly difficult to find this correctly in a category. Looking for a unique New York place. Nothing cheesy like jekyl and hyde.

What are some of your faves? Hoping the food is pretty good too.

Appreciate your expert advice. Thank you in advance for taking the time to help in this dining / entertainment search.

  1. Saturday 4-7pm at Lilly's on 17th st off of Union Square. They have a traditional Irish Craic session. They have a decent beer selection, good whiskey and the food is a slight step up from traditional bar food.

    1. Smoke on Broadway and 105th Street- great jazz and excellent food. I also love Birdland on W. 44- also great jazz, decent food.

      1. Thanks for taking the time to add your suggestions.

        Funny about Lily's. I have gone there a few times, and never knew they had some good craic. I must just miss it.

        Any other great suggestions?
