Beauty Bar has been in the East Village for over two decades. The front room looks like an old-school salon (with a bar), and there’s an open space in the back where they host comedy shows and other events. Once the events are over, this becomes the dance floor. The music is typically older, so don’t expect Top 40. Just grab a cheap drink and do your best to dance to a song that might have been on the radio back when most people still listened to the radio.
