The Bitter End is a nostalgic Greenwich venue that’s been going strong for decades with strong roots in the folk community. Just take a look at all the famous stars that have graced the door (yeah, you might have heard of that Bob Dylan guy) since it opened in 1961.
I must admit, I’m more of a jazz, world music or indie type of guy, but this cozy spot always wins me over no matter who is on stage. The waitresses are nice, the drinks aren’t too expensive, and the crowd is always respectful. We usually try to snag a small table in the back for a perfect view as the music fills the air.
There’s usually a line to get in and come ready for a two-drink minimum, but don’t let that deter you. Even if you’re not that into the music, this is one of those classic New York spots where you can practically feel the history inside the room.
