Anchoring the corner of Avenue A and 6th Street for nearly 30 years,  Sidewalk Cafe is an East Village landmark, both a lively neighborhood haunt and a destination for seekers of a singular slice of  authentic New York nightlife.  Sidewalk is  known for its thriving live entertainment scene,  mouthwatering menu of modestly priced casual fare (particularly burgers made with meat ground on-site for superior taste and texture)  and  convivial bar, the site of one of Manhattan’s best Happy Hours.  With three distinct  spaces – Restaurant, Bar and Stage – offering three different reliably relaxed and always fun experiences, Sidewalk is open daily from 11 a.m to 1 a.m and weekends until 4 a.m.

Check our calendar for  our regular entertainment schedule. Mondays mean Sidewalk Cafe’s famous OPEN MIC NIGHT, no cover and a two item – any food or drink item – minimum!  And Tuesdays are now devoted to Urbana’s weekly poetry event with an open mic, featured poet, and poetry slam.
