When You Feel Like Dancing & Listening to Live Music on the LES, Come Here
Satisfy your appetites and prep for a night of dancing at Balvanera. This authentic South American restaurant prioritizes flavor above all else, highlighting a combination of the Buenos Aires and Argentina’s boldest ingredients. We recommend starting with the grass-fed beef tartare and roasted cauliflower, and when it comes time for the main event (their famous meat), we love the chorizo and ribeye.
After dinner, head over to Pianos—a 2-level bar and music venue that hosts live indie acts downstairs and super fun DJ sets upstairs. Check their calendar to see who's on deck to perform. If you dance enough to get hungry again, the food is actually really good (and cheap). Order some french fries or nachos and call it a night.
