CBGB's, New York City: 5 reviews and 3 photos

CBGB's is the punk mecca of America. The Ramones, Blondie, and Lionel Ritchie have all played here. Ok, maybe not Lionel, but I think he will one day when he tours with Metallica! YEAH!

The place knows it has a rep, so they tend to charge a pretty penny at the door to get in sometimes. The bar is a small sliver in the Bowery but when there's a good show on, the place is awesome.

Oh, it's dirty as *** in there too. But who cares.

The funniest thing I ever saw here was a bunch of preppy chicks who came into the place on a Pub crawl gone horribly wrong. They stayed about 10 minutes. It was hillarious. They all sorta freaked out and melted in a pool of makeup on the floor.

Update: CBGB's appears to be closing its location and going (possibly?) somewhere else. See while you have the chance :\
