Knickerbocker cafe is a great place to see some live music. We were there recently to see our buddy and his band play along with a blues harmonica player, both musicians very well known this area.

Love this place as a concert venue. We have been here for numerous concerts in the past 4 years and have to say, one of the best for a small venue. Have seen Jimmy Vaughn & Lil Ed & the Imperials here. Great place as its intimate and you have the opportunity to chat with the musicians and get autographs.... More

I had not been to The Knick in a very, very long time. What a fantastic night we had New Year's Eve. Our server was great, the food was delicious, the champagne perfectly chilled and the band was the best. We had such a really good time. We can not wait to go again!

The door man and women bartenders were a wonderful, friendly surprise. I knew the Brassattack band would be fabulous. Try a french martini too.
