Success! Thanks for posting your review of Arlene's Grocery. You’ve done the world some good today.

hot new talent

Last night's show, featuring SOFIA, was awesome. Last time I was at Arlene's Grocery was a few years ago when Sofia was first featured. Not only has the area improved, but Arlene's seems to have improved right along with the neighborhood. I will definitely be back to hear new talent at Arlene's. The sound system worked well, although the tech people at Arlene's had some difficulty getting the show going (I also he... view more

Bar/club with authentic atmosphere/Great live band! "" Haakon's Fault""

Just happened by this old lower eastside grocery turned club and heard a terric band with a big sound, big heart and high spirits-Haakon's Fault. Unusual name to remember but worth the try. Bar seemed well managed, very strict about carding and generally welcoming and pleasant in that lower eastside, grungy kind of way-lots of character.

Nice to see a live band up close and in the flesh

Had a great time, went out to see The Bravery perform even though its not the first time I heard them live it sure felt like it in this small joint. The drinks are fairly priced. Not a very wide selection of beers, they didn?t have my fav =( but all was well. The crowed at the time was social and hip. Overall a great first impression I will surely be returning for some other night.

Worst Service

It was a cool place, i thought the concept of a grocery store turned into a bar cool. But I kind of didnt like the way te bartender was towards me, she was a little b*tchy, and kind of catty. I have no idea why, even when I entered the place and sat down at one of the tables, she asked for id from everyone and she just snarled at us, like we were in her way or making her work, I dont know what her issue was.. but wha... view more

DEFOG ROCKED at Arlene's...Best music scene in town.

I'm new to town and in the music industry, so I had some friends give me the heads up\r about places in town that actually have decent bands. Arelene's is hands down the best\r I have seen so far. The neighborhood rocks, the scene is very lower east side, and you can\r usually rely on hearing some good music. \r This one band, THE DEFOG played and blew me away.\r It's nice to know that someone is still making ... view more

good place for local music

i have seen some rock and punk bands here. a good place, with a lot of drunk and loud local people. i like the place for being funky and fun

The band was called quadrogong, the lead singer played blazing lead guitar on a Les Paul sunburst , some really cool Radiohead type songs,it was truly a great little performance for such a tiny room. The group was a three peice,with a funky,dirty looking noel redding afroed out bass player laying down some of that old time Billy Cox style basswork, with a talented drummer as well. What I remembered most was the band'... view more

ZO2 at Arlene's

Went to NYC to see ZO2 (best rock band ever) and saw them for free at Arlene's. I would have paid $20.00 to see them. WOW, great club, BEST band.

A subdued bar on a Sunday night

Arlene's has a unique storefront consistent with its name. We passed by the place the first time because it was empty. A nearby bar was too crowded and another was empty AND intimidating, so we returned to Arlene's on the Sunday night. We would've no idea it was for bands. A few pieces of arcade-game art on the walls...the stools and benches are sufficient, but don't expect royal treatment in terms of seating, at lea... view more

Hole In The Wall

Good bands but surprisingly poor sound system affected my enjoyment of music. Small room. Crowded. If you're not over 6 feet tall or standing in the front row you're not going to see much on stage. People who work there not too friendly. Bad vibe overall. OK place, but not great.
