Club Bonafide Reviews
This little dinner theater tucked away in the East 50's; is all about good music, fun, and service. They highlight comedy, jazz, Whitney Houston and Elvis tributes. There's a small flight of stairs... more »
A tiny club with up close performers and excellent acoustics. Reasonably priced tickets, but only general admission seating. Crowd control is managed by giving out numbered cards, that’s the order... more »
It is a great venue to see live music. I got there late for a show last week and they let us stay for the next show and gave us free tickets to any show. I really appreciated that because I'm from out of town so I would be leaving soon. So the day before I left I got to see the Whitney Houston tribute show and it was amazing. I had a wonderful time and when I come back to New York I will definitely catch a show here.
Is all of New York full of hidden amazing venues on their second floors? This place makes me wonder....a small and intimate performance space where your never more than 15 ft away from performers or the stage, Club Bonafide is a hidden gem on the UES. Sure the food is bad, (lower than diner quality, shame) and the drinks are just okay, but the performers are usually so good it doesn't matter. The place is dark and has great ambiance with brick accents. If I had one complaint it's that the small space makes it so that you cant really linger after a show. The club follows the comedy performance model with multiple shows and a two drink minimum, and is worth checking out if you like live music.
