I've been to Café Wha a number of times over the last 10 years. The music is excellent, musicians are fabulous, and everyone is grooving with the music.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

I Just had beers and a couple of appetizers. Beer depende much on The type, but i remember paying 5 dollars for a blue moon. And around 20 bucks for the appetizers. But the music was very good! Worth a visit. Enjoy!
