The Lounge at Dixon Place: where friends meet!
The Lounge at Dixon Place is the only bar on the Lower East Side where every cocktail supports artists and their new work. As a non-profit theater with a liquor license, we serve the most imaginative drinks in the neighborhood! Give yourself time to hang out before a show-you can even take your drink into the theater! And since every drink you buy goes directly to support our artists, your intoxication is absolutely guilt-free! 

So remember our lounge when you're out on the town. Celebrate your birthday or anniversary and support our cause. Drop in any night. You may catch free performances of music, comedy, poetry or burlesque. Our bartenders are the friendliest in town and will serve you right! Open evenings Monday thru Saturday.

A child knows. He plays hopscotch around their bodies while St. Boneyface appears for conversation. But no one in town is listening because no one is praying. They greedily wait for the Whaler to come feed them, only to send him back out for more. Shoes need resoling, and mail needs posting with no one paying any attention. Will St. Boneyface's efforts to reconnect this scattered town prove successful or garbled? *Actors appearing courtesy of AEA.
