There is nothing quite like live music, and we have some of the best character establishments right here in Bed-Stuy. Here are a few of the best places to catch a live show in Bed-Stuy.



LunAtico is a Jazz club that everyone in (and out of) the neighborhood needs to check out. They have live music almost every night, and a Gospel brunch on the weekends. They bring in many different bands, have a full calendar, and they take their music very seriously. It is an intimate venue, so you will be close to the music, and the atmosphere is always vibrant. LunAtico exudes character, and is one of the best bars in Bed-Stuy. For quality, live music, LunAtico is a must.



Tilly’s is an upscale Carribean restaurant that often has live music to complement the cuisine. It is a large space and the band plays on an elevated stage. When we went, the three-piece band had a soulful vibe with amazing vocals that resonated through the whole restaurant. Tilly’s is great for date night, especially if you want that extra component of live music.

If it is a club/DJ vibe that you are looking for, C’mon Everybody is the place for you. They bring many different acts that you can find on Eventbrite, some free and some with a small cover charge. They have a front room with a bar, and then the main back room, where the DJ plays and the party thrives. If you are looking for a booze-filled fun night where anything goes, check out the very inclusive C’mon Everybody.

The Casablanca Cocktail Lounge has a very cool vibe and decor that has recently been revamped. It’s got an industrial feel and is a great place to grab a drink and hang out late night. They have different DJs who bring different sounds and add variety to Casablanca. It is a great place to head after having dinner at nearby Chez Oscar.

Community Gardens

Last but certainly not least are our community gardens in Bed-Stuy. Often times in the summer, if you happen to be walking by on the weekend, you will be drawn in by live music and a crowd. The music is great, the crowd is always happy, and it just makes life slow down a little. It is so nice to stop what you are doing, step into a community garden, and appreciate your neighbors.
