One of the pillars of New York’s cabaret scene is the great Café Carlyle in the historic Carlyle hotel. This is the crème de la crème of the cabaret experience; performers including Woody Allen, John Pizzarelli, and Christine Ebersole are the norm, and many Broadway stars grace the stage on a regular basis. Performers are generally engaged for 1-2 weeks, but some (like Woody Allen) do have regular weekly gigs. As with its neighbor Bemelmans, the Café Carlyle is not cheap. Cover charges frequently float in the low $100s for a top-tier performer. This is not the place for a cheap date. It is, however, a great spot for cozying up with someone (you better really like them for these prices) and enjoying unparalleled talent and a truly sophisticated experience. (MS)
