Welcome to The Back Fence Online!  The only spot on the web to get the complete low-down on a true New York City Landmark!

Back Fence

(Est. 1945)

155 Bleecker Street (corner of Thompson)

Greenwich Village, New  York City

The Back Fence, New York City's World Famous Corner Bar!

Sandwiched in the very heart of the Greenwich Village music scene by the likes of The Bitter End, The Red Lion and Kenny's Castaways, The Back Fence has been an entertainment hot spot for 60 years!  We have two or three entertainers every night playing every style of music, a great atmosphere with lots of beer on tap and free peanuts that you shell on a sawdust covered floor.  We're open at 4 pm everyday (earlier on weekends) and close our doors at 4 am.

  Hit Counter Hits!

We hope you had a great time at The Back Fence!
