Established 1950 – The Duplex continues today as an international destination for arts and entertainment, providing nightly performances as varied and colorful as the streets of the West Village.
A gay & straight crowd camps out at this bi-level bar for piano sing-alongs, drag revues & comedy.
Although The Duplex looks like a quiet West Village corner home, there’s a raucous world of great cabaret behind its French doors. Opened in the ‘50s in its original location across the street, The Duplex moved to its current digs in the ‘80s and is touted as the city’s oldest cabaret theatre where the likes of Joan Rivers and Woody Allen tested out their early work.
Enjoy an entire evening of Broadway-quality entertainment without the long lines or overpriced tickets. The centerpiece in the downstairs piano bar is undoubtedly the black baby grand piano, played nightly. For patrons with the courage to take center stage, the piano bar hosts impromptu open-mic sessions for singers during the week after 9pm and a comedy open-mic on Wednesdays from 6:30pm-8:30pm.
Upstairs @ The Duplex will provide you with that NYC lounge feel, and late night weekly and monthly parties now reminiscent 0f the West Village of the past.
