Those visiting Lincoln Center this summer will be able to journey underground at The Speakeasy for FREE performances varying from comedy to cabaret. It’s all taking place at Jaffe Drive beneath Lincoln Center’s campus.
The Speakeasy, designed by Tony Award-winning costume and set designer Clint Ramos, has been in the making for quite some time now and New Yorkers can finally experience its magic from June 4th – August 13th. It boasts “a welcoming space for every audience to engage with Lincoln Center as their own: to dance in, to laugh, to meet up, and unwind.”
Be whisked away by the brilliance of Suzette Simon from NY Laughs or soothed with jazzy tunes from Wali Collins. Aesthetes can take in spoken word and poetry performances specially curated by Poet-in-Residence Mahogany L. Browne.
To enter into the space, locate the Jaffe Drive parking lot. You will be able to find a ramp next to the Revson Fountain where you’ll be led to the splendor of The Speakeasy. The venue is open Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
And though the performances will be free of charge, guests can purchase drinks and quench their thirst by stopping at the cash bar.

Another new highlight of Lincoln Center’s Summer for the City initiative is The Oasis: NYC’s largest outdoor dance floor. New Yorkers can boogie away as soon as the Josie Robertson Plaza completes its transformation.
