This high-ceilinged restaurant and lounge in the upstairs part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music is the spot to hit for free Friday and Saturday evening shows. The room is beautiful and the line-up is generally mellow, covering jazz, R&B, world music and experimental rock.

BAMcafé also hosts 'Eat Drink & Be Literary,' a weekly Thursday reading and dinner (per person including dinner $55). Past speakers have included novelists Salman Rushdie, Jeffrey Eugenides and Jonathan Franzen.
