About The Host

Richard Barone is an American rock musician who first gained attention as frontman for The Bongos. He works as a songwriter, arranger, author, director, and record producer, releases albums as a solo artist, tours, and has created major concert events at Carnegie Hall, Hollywood Bowl, and New York's Central Park.

About The Series

Since 1902, the Washington Square Hotel (formerly “The Earle”) has been a haven for writers, artists, and musicians. Take a minute and let these names sink in: Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bo Diddley, Maynard Ferguson, Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, Ernest Hemingway and Dylan Thomas. Yes, all of these greats—and more—have been guests at this iconic Greenwich Village landmark.

Washington Square Hotel hopes to build upon its rich history by launching a monthly salon series. 'Village Nights' will be curated and hosted by Greenwich Village musician, producer, author, legendary frontman for The Bongos, and longtime Villager, Richard Barone.

“Greenwich Village’s longstanding legacy as a center of cultural revolution and a haven for self-expression has always been best expressed through its nightlife. This freewheeling musical salon series celebrates the Village’s folk, jazz, and spoken-word heritage in a uniquely historic setting and offers a great night out!” says Barone.

  • Show times are at 7 p.m. in the hotel’s North Square Lounge.

  • $20 per person cover charge with no drink minimum.

  • Seating may be at the bar
