Pre-pay admission here.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not sell "tickets" at the club itself. There is no box office. So if you would rather not pre-pay your admission online, you may make a reservation over the phone. Call the club at (212) 255-4037 and leave your name, the number of people in your party, the night you would like to come and which set you would like to attend. Reservations are held until 15 MINUTES before show time. If you need to speak to us in person, call after 3:00 PM EDT.


We no longer accommodate groups of more than 8 people. If you try to circumvent this rule by pre-paying admission for a larger number of guests in batches of 8, we will consider your total group as separate. You will not be able to sit together.


The admission price for Friday & Saturday is $30.00 per set plus a 1 drink minimum.

The admission price Sunday through Thursday is $25.00 per set plus a 1 drink minimum.

Generally speaking, A STUDENT DISCOUNT is in effect Sunday through Thursday, 2nd set only. The student discount admission is $20.00. There is a 1 drink minimum. Valid student I.D. required. In all cases, the discount is subject to availability. It's wise to call the club to be sure.
