About

Although The Duplex looks like a quiet West Village corner home, there’s a raucous world of great entertainment behind its French doors. Opened in 1951 in its original location across the street, The Duplex moved to its current location in the ‘80s and is known as the city’s oldest cabaret theatre. Stars the likes of Joan Rivers, Billy Porter, Hal Holbrook, and Barbra Streisand all launched careers from our stages.

Enjoy an entire evening of Broadway-quality entertainment without the long lines or overpriced tickets. The centerpiece in the downstairs piano bar is undoubtedly the black baby grand piano, played nightly and accompanied by our incredibly talented staff of singing bartenders. For patrons with the courage to take center stage, the piano bar hosts impromptu open-mic sessions for singers during the week after 9pm and a comedy open-mic on Wednesdays from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Upstairs @ The Duplex will provide you with that NYC lounge feel, and late night weekly and monthly parties now reminiscent of the West Village of the past.
