places you can go with teenagers in the evening

hi

we arrive Saturday, in three days, my challenge is what to do in the evening with teenager kids who are too young to go to bars but won't want to go back to our hotel after we eat. What sort of places are fun to go to in the evening, Are there clubs - especially magic and comedy clubs - that are open to people under 21 ? are there ways of meeting locals with teenage families? any suggestions gratefully considered best regards and thanks in advance Richard

We just had a good thread on this

Also check out the National Comedy Theater which does clean comedy

For magic I can heartily recommned Steve Cohen's Chamber Magic show but it's pricey and there's a dress code (lightly enforced on weekend matinees) http://www.chambermagic.com/

to clarify the dress code, when I said it's lightly enforce on weekend matinees I meant that I took a teen there on a weekend matinee and he did not have a jacket but did wear a tie and it wasn't a problem

Walk around Times Square or Greenwich Village, or just about any neighborhood. Shops and other places stay open fairly late so just wandering can be interesting and fun. Get dessert at a sidewalk cafe and people watch.

Go to the top of the ESB, it's open until 2 am http://www.esbnyc.com/ and then walk through Koreatown en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koreatown,_Manhattan which can be hopping 24/7

Ride the Staten Island Ferry - it's free and 24 hours with an amazing view at night. http://www.siferry.com/

Ride the Roosevelt Island Tram - It runs fairly late and also has a great view http://rioc.ny.gov/tramtransportation.htm (Pay with the same card you use for the subway)

Save top of the rock or ESB for one night.. And cafe wha is a great suggestion... Then afterwards just stroll through Greenwich village... They will love it.

I'm sure they'd love another night of seeing Times Square... All the shops and craziness... Find dessert somewhere etc... That's 3 nights right there.

My son loves watching street ball games at the Cageat West 4th. There are usually games going on late afternoon/early evening. We like to walk over to Washington Square Park towatch locals gather to play music together. Makes for great people watching. Then head to Johns on Bleecker for pizza. Very relaxing chill evening.

Lots of outdoor events in the summer. Check out summerstage and midsummer nights swing at lincoln center (you can go to watch and listen without having to pay to get onto the dance floor)

the Upright Citizens Brigade does sketch and improve comedy. the tickets are $10 and some are free. I've booked tickets for myself and 16 YO niece based on other trip reports I read of teens attending.

In addition to the great ideas already suggested, I've seen teenagers at Dizzy's ...it's a very lovely jazz venue (you'll need to look up the program to see who's on the nights you're thinking about - http://dizzys.com.au/web/ )

You can eat there (food is very good; service is great). And besides the fantastic music, the view over the top end of midtown (~58th-59th Streets) and Central Park over to 5th Avenue is breathtaking.

Have a great holiday.
