The Bitter End is a bar
and music venue
in Greenwich Village
. More specifically, 147 Bleecker Street
The Bitter End hosts up and coming bands as well as established artists, being a well-established club itself. They are usually 21 and over with frequent 18 and over shows too. The Bitter End is notorious for rabid enforcement of its two-drink minimum, even on band members playing that night. They are fucking merciless in that regard. However, the drinks are reasonably priced and the music's good.
The Bitter End is a smaller, more intimate sit-down venue with a pretty deep history. Everyone from Bob Dylan to Woody Allen has been onstage in front of its red brick wall.
