From jazz and rock to electronic, soul & funk to hip-hop and international music DROM prides itself on presenting fresh new sounds and introducing new talent to the always invigorating NY live music nightlife. "New York's premiere venue for world music" (Wall Street Journal) is located at 85 Avenue A between 5th St. and 6th St. in the heart of East Village and has a wide and eclectic selection of music programming throughout the week. Drom also features a bar, kitchen and lounge area in addition to the main space making it easy to scale the room depending on your occasion. From seated shows to late night DJ events, there is a little something for everyone at Drom. 

Live concerts are Drom's forte, but there are also a myriad of other happenings including burlesque shows, film screenings, dance shows, stand-up comedy, musical theater, readings, networking parties, kids events, trivia games as well as private parties, product launches
 and even weddings. Drom is also home to artist showcases for popular music conferences in New York like APAP, CMJ and LAMC
