This is the longest and most prestigious open-mic night in... the... world. Want to challenge that statement? Prince, Jamie Foxx, and Mariah Carey may disagree. Here, the concept is no different from other venues, but the magic lies in the superior musicianship of both singers and the band. Watch as aspiring artists take the stage and pour their hearts out in a performance to give you goosebumps. Sit-back and enjoy a night of great music. Who knows you might see Prince... or the up-and-coming Prince?
Note: There is a two drink minimum per person. The Master of Ceremonies for the evening is Ron Grant, who has produced several successful showcases over the past ten years at top New York City nightspots, including The Blue Angel, Chas & Wilson’s and Cheetah. Ron has toured internationally, recorded jingles for major companies (AT&T, M&M, Pizza Hut and Frito Lay), recorded background vocals for Mariah Carey, Bryan McKnight, and The Temptations amongst many others, and has appeared on multiple television shows. His passion for music is also exemplified in his work as a Senior Executive at Sony Music where he is charged with the task of finding, nurturing and promoting new talent.

I was in NYC for a girls' trip the first weekend in May, and we hit the Village Underground on that Friday night. We started with some laughs at the Comedy Cellar (same building, same room, so convenient) and stayed for the live music. It was phenomenal. The house band was talented, fun and energetic and played tunes for a variety of ages and tastes (Thriller/Could You Be Loved Mashup, Amy Winehouse, Aerosmith). The crowd was really diverse and fun. There are a million things to do in NYC, but I would head back here in a heartbeat.

This is a good place to listen to R&B music in a jam session/open mic setting.

Some of the best jamming I have ever experienced. It was "open microphone" with guests on vocal and the house band as backing. It was absolutely fabulous! Went there 3 nights and will definitely go back next time in Manhatten.

I went there last Friday with some girlfriends to see the live band. That was my second time at VU and I love it. Diverse crowd and awesome band. You can hear just about any type of music there. There's a pretty good vibe and I would definitely go back.
Vimbly service and communication was leaps and bounds above any other online interaction I have ever had.
Vimbly is the best! It is super convenient and makes trying new things easy. The classes they link you up with are extraordinary facilities that exceed expectations. I could not be happier after discovering Vimbly. A++
I have taken two tours with Vimbly and am looking forward to many more in the future! They have a wide variety of opportunities, many of which I would never have thought of doing. Both tours that I attended were well organized, interesting, and fun. I look to Vimbly for ideas and activities when I want to find something fun to do.
Used Vimbly 3 times now: booked a Knife Skills class at Institute of Culinary Education, booked tickets to Improvised Shakespeare (HOW DID THEY EVEN GET ACCESS TO THESE???), and booked tickets to an Improv show at the Upright Citizen's Brigade. Really simple and efficient way to find something to do and book it right away without ever having to pick up a phone. I like that you can search by date and also category.
As far as a rating, I'd absolutely give your site a 10. It's easy to use, easy to find whats upcoming, unambiguous and concise. It's something my mother could use without calling me seven times with questions. I've already pointed some friends to the site, and you can be sure I'll be using it in the future.
Vimbly.com is a powerful “secret weapon” for impressing your friends and improving your dating life! Vimbly’s like having a friendly concierge in your pocket with a vast selection of super fun ideas of things to do in the city – everything from how to wow a first date to putting together a fun activity for your peeps. Vimbly hooks you up with a no hassle booking process and makes you seem like an expert in what’s going down in the city.
I already have recommended it to a friend! Several in fact. The site is such a good idea and I love how the people at Church Street knew we were coming and treated us like their own customers and not coupon redeemers. My girlfriend and I will definitely be going back there and are already looking on your site for what to do next weekend.
Easily one of the best dates I've been on, and I have Vimbly to thank for the idea. Planning to use it again while I'm in the city for the next month, and already reminded my coworkers about it.
