  • Cake Shop

    New York

    Cake Shop - Bar | Live Music Venue | Pastry Shop in New York.
    Jun 10, 2013 Dig it! "I really dig Cake Shop. We were in town a few days and wanted to see some live music at a small local venue, ya know: just cheap cover and rock n roll, and Cake Shop scratched that itch perfectly for us. Cake Shop was something that came up on Yelp and so we popped in there on a Saturday night, I believe, in September and caught several good bands, including the excellent Native Cats from Australia. The beers were reasonably cheap and the atmosphere was great. This place has that greasy rock feel to it with stickers and grime but it's clean overall and while it's kinda funky being in a basement to see a show it's really no big deal. People were super friendly and while there is only very limited seating it's easy to get right up to the stage, which is like a foot off the ground or whatever, and be 'intimate' with the performance. This is the kind of place I love to see music: independent-type joints and the fact that you can shop for records and eat sweets here as well is just, er, icing on the cake, really. If you like this place and are improbably in Minneapolis, Minnesota, stop by First Avenue, or even better, the 7th St Entry." hide

    Jun 10, 2013 Well great! "Talk about a great place with great music and I will always pop my head in with a phrase - "Have you been to the living room"? At first people that are not aware of it, think that I am maybe trying to invite them to my living room...but after some further clarifications on its location they all of a sudden remember that they've heard about it somehow, but never've been there. To which I say "Well u HAVE to go then, great music, you can actually talk to the people that perform there before or after the show without any pompous rules or attitudes and did I mention that it is donation based?" I have been there only 4 or 5 times and already consider it as my regular spot to see and hear some great music and i love doing it randomly on any day, especially a weekday. The Living Room has some great shows almost every day and every day you will find it is full with regulars and occasional by stoppers. There is a bar in a back and another lounge upstairs, plenty of fun to be had at this EV joint. Check out some videos I managed to sneak last few times I was there." hide

    The Wayland - Cocktail Bar | Restaurant in New York.
    Jun 10, 2013 Just right! "DRINKS: I will get this right out of the way - I didn't like their signature Garden Variety Margarita - too much "garden" for my taste, so unless you really dig kale, get one of their other amazing cocktails! The Wayland's take on a Pimm's cup ("Pimm's for Pros" don't patronize me, I'm a thorough amateur) is a solid cocktail incorporating rye and ginger ale to round out the flavors in a slightly different direction than the typical gin-taste. Also their "All Hallow's EV" (Bourbon, pumpkin juice, cinnamon-infused agave nectar, lemon, bitters, prosecco) has me wishing autumn would stay around longer just so they would continue to offer this. SERVICE: How do they manage to stay friendly while being so busy? REALLY busy and yet none of that pretentious hipster shit that has invaded the service industry. The bartenders (I save the "mixologist" title for dopes who need to feel special) are super skilled, and it shows. They're pumping out cocktails that rival overinflated places like PDT at double the pace, AND keeping up a conversation with the customer at the same time! FOOD: Holy crap look at that menu! Come for the cocktails - stay for the eating. For someone who doesn't like Brussels Sprouts, their shaved raw ones paired with apples and walnuts went PERFECT with the dressing (some kind of honey-base). They offer an AFFORDABLE cheese platter (and unlike some other places you can choose 1/2/3 so you're not stuck with a huge amount of cheese if it's just 2 of you that want something to nibble on). I must've seen 4 orders of the pulled chicken going out in the short time that I was actively monitoring what others were eating (aka 'greedily eying everyone's plates and wishing I hadn't eaten all day beforehand') and it looked and smelled out of this world. CROWD & AMBIANCE: Ok, it gets crowded, what bar doesn't? It also might get invaded by East Village douchebags from time to time (makes me pine for the days when the LES was more of a squalid hole and people wore work boots because they WORKED in em). Don't let it bother you. Try to nab a seat at the bar on the far side of the room where it's a little more sane, or bring enough friends to grab a table. There's plenty of hooks on the walls for coats/bags which is a really nice thing to see. The lighting is old school naked light bulbs set on dim, and candles lower down on the tables/bar. Music seemed to be mostly brass band jazz, and low enough to create an atmosphere but not so loud that you're competing with it to talk. Put the Shazam down, it won't work." hide
