Caveat makes smart entertainment for smart people. Every show the Caveat in-house team creates is original, informational, and most importantly, f*cking fun. At their shows, you’ll not only see comedians, storytellers, drag queens, and musicians, but also doctors, lawyers, professors, city-planners, astronomers, biologists, and even the odd particle physicist because our formula is simple: when someone is passionate about what they’re talking about, it’s amazing to watch. If you just want to laugh, go somewhere else. If you want laugh, learn, love, and be inspired by a unique performance with a great drink in an awesome venue, Caveat is the place for you!

Caveat is a 110-seat live show venue and bar on Clinton street in the lower east side. Find the street-level black door marked with a purple C just a couple doors south of Rizzo’s Pizza, head down a flight of stairs, and behind the purple curtain you’ll discover a spacious 5,000 square foot cabaret-style speakeasy theater, complete with a library nook, leather armchairs and wood panelling. Our bar serves a large selection of craft beer, wine and bar snacks.
