From torch-song cabarets to cutting-edge dance clubs, from neighborhood bars to velvet-rope lounges, plus world-class comedy clubs and establishments with all manner of live entertainment, New York City is a world capital of nightlife. Here you can find libations from beer and wine to elaborate cocktails and high-end champagne, often accompanied by great food.

The birthplace of the New York Strip, Gallagher’s is renowned for its steaks, veal loin, and double-rib lamb chops, broiled over hickory logs. Now the Theatre District institution is featuring live jazz every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, performed by graduates of the Empire State Youth Orchestra form 9pm to midnight. Reservations are strongly suggested; call 212-245-5336. (Note: There is a two-drink minimum required for those not dining.)

Stop into any of Heartland Brewery’s locations and you’ll see that it isn’t just beer that’s brewing at New York’s first American-style brewpub. The relaxed atmosphere makes it a great place to kick back and relax, and the five locations make it easy to escape the rush of the city. Sample one of the many unique brewed beers, try a tasty martini, or have one of the appetizers. And located next door to the Times Square location is the newest member of the Heartland Brewery, HB Burger, which serves nine specialty burgers and “hard shakes,” which are definitely not for kids!

Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater has played host to all kinds of musical greats, from Billie Holiday to Aretha Franklin. Hopefuls and renowned artists still keep up with tradition, touching the Tree of Hope for luck before the many comedic and musical performances. Experience the original Apollo Amateur Night every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., where you choose the next Apollo Legend.

Times Square Arts Center features musical acts, but their stock in trade is comedy. Their nightly shows feature stand-up comedy by superstar comics (plus, their 8pm shows are family-friendly), while Eight Is NEVER Enough is an interactive improv show, and Friday & Saturday nights feature Midnight All-Stars, late-night lunacy for the not-so-timid comedy fans. They also provide upscale bar food, comfortable seating and great acoustics, as well as a VIP room.
