Another good place to see live shows without paying a cover is Harlem Nights. This is a Swedish ski lodge-looking bar from the outside. And, on the inside, they have live comedy and music, as well as a daily Happy Hour that runs from 4-9pm. There’s a big bar where you can sit and drink discounted mango margaritas out of mason jars, as well as a bunch of high top tables and spots near the stage.
