1. Sidewalk Cafe 94 Ave A, New York, NY 10009 (New York)

Originally opened in 1985, the home of the city's longest-running open mic night recently overhauled itself and's returned as a three-part party barn, blowing out the stage room to accommodate better views, dropping turquoise banquettes in the dining area, and filling out the bar with a large distressed mirror and cage-like fixtures, so they're totally awesome at acting all crazy, but also could probably go serious if the part called for it.
