425 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10003
New York City
If you have ever seen a giant line of people on the east side of Lafayette Street, just south of Astor Place, that was Joe's Pub. Every night, it attracts crowds of well-dressed people who look like they are probably cooler than you and know something you do not.
The thing is, however, these people are not lined up to get into the latest exclusive dance club (though, to be fair, Late Night at Joe's Pub features many of New York's more well-known DJs). They are waiting on a room that is part of the New York cultural landmark, the Public Theater, that hosts a wide array of performances, anything from poetry to dance to classical to, you guessed it, jazz.
