Explore Lower East Side

Gritty and cramped — but exciting despite all that — this neighborhood is on a mission to prove that "the city that never sleeps" is a real thing. Nightlife abounds, from dive bars to packed clubs to late-night art galleries, and your new favorite band is definitely playing here, no matter your chosen music genre. The Lower East Side, packed with pre-war tenements, retains signs of its immigrant history, and Brooklyn is just across the bridge.
