Union Square’s Hotel Nikko is doing its part to keep quality cabaret and jazz alive in the city with this plush, intimate, 140-seat venue. A wide range of entertainers grace the stage (Kathleen Turner, Darren Criss, Lea Salonga, Melissa Manchester, Jane Lynch, Bernadette Peters, Liza Minnelli, and club founder Michael Feinstein, to name a few). Expect a $20 food-and-beverage minimum per person, which is best spent on a cocktail or a nibble from the small plates menu.
