[Please note: 116 MacDougal is closed.]
116 MacDougal116 is a new “old bar” – a rock ‘n’ roll cocktail lounge with a classic drink menu, diverse downtown crowd. This subterranean spot is the historic location that originally housed the legendary Gaslight Café.
Known as The Birthplace of New York Bohemia, the space once featured the readings of beat poets Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, the stand-up routines of Wavy Gravy and Bill Cosby and early performances of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.
The stone-walled lounge is now lined with low banquets, private alcoves, photo booth, and a classic cocktail menu. As an intimate performance venue, their calendar features a rotation of emerging NYC musicians, poets, comics, DJs, and more. 116 is reemerging as a new home for New York’s up and coming creative community.
