Groove Bar in Greenwich Village offers live R&B, funk, and soul bands every night of the week. Enjoy traditional and contemporary tunes as well as open mic nights with classic bar food such as burgers, fries, and mozzarella sticks on offer from its menu. Ticket pricing requires two drinks minimum, with cash being the only payment accepted here; be sure to arrive early to secure a seat!

Musicians frequently refer to “groove,” yet many find it hard to explain beyond “something that makes music sound good.” The origin of this word comes from vinyl records: musicians “ride” their grooves much as a needle would physically travel between tracks on an album record. Being in sync with the rhythm of the beat can only come through getting into the groove: any attempt at playing ahead or behind will sound off and create instability in your playing style.

An exceptional drummer will know how to deliberately place hits in front or behind the beat, creating an entirely different sound from simply not hitting on time. Additionally, great drummers utilize syncopation techniques in their music for added interest and flavor.

Mister Paradise

Mister Paradise bar in East Village has quickly become a favorite destination for upscale drinks and hearty Caribbean food. It features a chic atmosphere with red booths and walls surrounding its bar area. Their well-balanced cocktails boast vibrant flavors such as gin and rum, while there’s also an excellent wine selection – the ideal setting for romantic dates and groups of friends!

Mister Paradise features an eclectic cocktail program with amusing names incorporating severe culinary techniques. Their most recent creation, Corn Ultimatum, is an irresistibly delicious blend of bourbon, genever, roasted corn, peach nectar, and parmesan tincture – not to mention delicious new dishes like fried chicken tacos and coconut curry mussels on their menu!
