Walking around Greenwich Village, you used to hear jazz floating up out of basements on almost every block. Not any more, but Zinc Bar is a little bit of what New York City used to be.

From the 1930s to the 1950s, the space was the Cinderella Club. The house pianist was Thelonious Monk. Billie Holiday sang there. You might see people like Mae West and Frank Sinatra in the audience.

In the 1960s and 1970s it became a late night club Tenth of Always and then Bonnie & Clyde’s, a famous lesbian bar. In the 1980s and 1990s, the space became The Baggot Inn comedy club.

Today the bar is owned by an Argentine family. Maybe that is why it has an international sound. You will hear straight ahead Jazz, Bossa Nova, Cumbia, Flamenco, Rumba, Tango, and just about everything.

Sunday nights are Tango nights with live music. You can go and listen, or watch, and you can dance too. New York City’s Argentine community loves it.
