“A forward-thinking venue that seeks to showcase disparate musical styles under one roof…artistically planned eclecticism.”
– Time Out New York

“The place isn’t merely cool, as the New York Times has dubbed it, the venue is a downright musical marvel.”
– Los Angeles Times

“[LPR has] turned New York City on its ear with a borderless approach to booking.”

“The coolest place to hear contemporary music.”
– The New York Times

“One of my favorite New York City clubs”
— Bob Boilen, NPR’s All Songs Considered

“Just when you thought all artistic integrity had been sucked out of NYC’s cookie-cutter nightlife, Greenwich Village gets a performance space fit for orchestras and punk rockers alike.”
– Shecky’s

“Every other venue should pay attention to what these guys are doing…They absolutely get it.”
– Manhattan Magazine

“[LPR is] an epicenter for adventurous music”
– The New York Times

“No surprise, really: Le Poisson Rouge, in both its chic veneer and its earnest disregard for genre boundaries, has embraced a style and ethos fostered by the Kronos Quartet for more than three decades. In any given week at the club you might hear classical post-Minimalism, beat-heavy electronica, evanescent chamber pop and clever world-music fusions.”
– The New York Times

“The most romantic ear in New York may belong to the booker of (le) Poisson Rouge, who deftly redefines the East Village space nightly with jazz quartets, art-buzz rock bands, Jamaican dancehall parties, movie screenings, literary readings, and everything in between.” — Village Voice
