Foursquare Tips

  • If you're going to sing a solo at a piano bar full of people, you HAVE to sing out!
  • Don't forget to toast liberty! Founding father Thomas Paine, whose pamphlet Common Sense helped convince America to fight for independence, died at this location in 1809.
  • It's a piano bar! So please keep talking to a mimimum and sing some showtunes.
  • This beloved dive is the best bar to sing your heart out in a group. Every night, a pianist mines the Great American Songbook well into the wee hours for Broadway babies from all over the city.
  • A piano bar where EVERYONE sings show tunes as loud as you can. The bar is decidedly old-school looking, but the drinks are very strong.
  • Off 7th Ave & Grove. Be nice & say please when you're requesting a showtune - which doesn't always include Billy Joel or Mama Mia.
  • Lights go out, legs go up.
  • Between songs, ask 1 of the regulars or the owner to tell you about the ghosts that haunt the bar they take the paranormal seriously. More at http://www.partyearth.com/venues/maries-crisis-cafe.
  • Winner of Best Piano Bar in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Tip the pianists and they're play just about anything for you.
  • Sing out, Louise!
  • You need to know all of the lyrics to countless musicals. Does that sound fun? You're in the right place! "I saw RENT once!" Go somewhere else.
  • Michael Kors shares Marie's Crisis Cafe as his favorite New York City Secret. It's the fabulous piano bar where he's seen everyone from Matthew Broderick to Nathan Lane!
  • The best place for any broadway lover.
  • Want to sing showtunes? This is the place to be then. But don't forget to tip your piano player, server and bartender, and they'll take care of you!
  • They have Admiral Nelson's Spiced Rum.
  • Cash only. But the strong cheap happy hour drinks are worth it.
  • Great fun. Would be even better if all the failed theater queens could keep their attitudes in check.
  • Come sing with Jimmy before 10 on Wednesday! And no matter who's playing, show your love with cash in the fishbowl!
  • Absolutely amazing Broadway music and great vibe. Bring cash.
  • Had an absolute blast and already can't wait to go back. It's very small, but I think that really just adds to the charm.
