Metropolitan brings audiences into a 115-seat cabaret-style space to enjoy evenings steeped in music and dynamic humor. Brassy vocalist Carole J. Bufford's May 19 show couldn't be more suited to the space: speak easy. celebrates intimate Prohibition-era songs made famous by Sophie Tucker, Bessie Smith, and Louis Armstrong. Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks—heard on Boardwalk Empire—back her up with accompaniment that seethes and swirls with Old Hollywood glamour.
The club also regularly hosts comedy shows to keep floor workers from becoming depressed after working long hours in a laugh factory, including a Saturday night slot hosted by industry insider Andy Engel. A menu of small bites such as hummus and antipasto platters also includes fruit-heavy craft cocktails, bottled beer, and wine by the glass.
