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 4 a.m.

Join us for SidewalkLIVE, 20th Anniversary, our year-long celebration of two decades of live performances in our intimate back room Stage.  To mark the milestone, throughout the year we will host special celebratory events and offer food and drink specials.

Check our calendar for  SidewalkLIVE, 20th Anniversary events,  along with our regular entertainment schedule,  including the new SIDEWALK SWINGS series on Wednesday nights.  Mondays mean Sidewalk Cafe’s famous  OPEN MIC NIGHT, no cover and just a one item – any food or drink item – minimum!  And Tuesdays are now devoted to comedy; again, no cover and just the one item minimum.
