Louis 649

Louis 649

In the frequently over-priced world of New York, most places that are even slightly economical offer little more than sticky barstools and a decent jukebox—Louis 649, on the other hand, is not only wallet-friendly, it's a great place for catching live jazz most every night of the week. Good local artists on the rise offer some of the classiest, traditional jazz around on a regular basis, and there's no cover charge to be spoken of. Even the drinks are cheap, here; the massive beer selection is frequently half-price, and the wines and premium-made well drinks are equally affordable. There's a mellow, bohemian vibe to this little Village jazz bar, making it a nice stop when craving a little live music and a tasty cocktail.
