Kenny's Castaways

Kenny's Castaways is all about rock and blues, baby. Serving up live music for more than 40 years, this place earned its street cred playing host to bands like the New York Dolls, Kiss, the Ramones and Phish; Bruce Springsteen played his first New York gig on this very stage. The cool atmosphere blends a bit of style and rock history, with gold records and signed photos adorning the walls, and a dark and sexy mezzanine level that's perfect for curling up with a good cocktail on while you listen to almost six bands every night. The crowd varies, but is generally an oddly harmonious blend of young and old, hip and shaggy.
