You come here for the big stars of the cabaret world: Lisa Loeb, Chita Rivera Megan Hilty and the like. So the shows are terrific, the setting elegant, but being in this rarified atmosphere will be pricey: Admission ranges from $90 to $140, plus a drink minimum. Value-minded cabaret fans can save by reserving standing room (which usually results in a spot at the bar) for $55–$80. On most Mondays, Woody Allen joins the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band on clarinet to swing Dixie-style ($165 cover).
