American Beauty NYC - Venue Headquarters for the 13-night Baker's Dozen

Coinciding with Phish’s 13-night run at Madison Square Garden, American Beauty NYC will host a run of shows occurring before and after the Baker’s Dozen run. Located 1 block from MSG, American Beauty is a multi-room live music space & craft beer bar serving a free personal pizza with every drink purchase. The venue is named after The Grateful Dead’s acclaimed 1970 studio album. Thus, making it a popular hangout spot for the jam band community in NYC.

In addition to ticketed concerts, the venue will also host a ‘Jerry Lounge’ on the second floor that will replicate the lot scene that occurs at outdoor Phish shows. Entry is free, and the lounge will feature vendors curated by PhanArt, a Grateful Dead DJ, grilled cheese, and other entertainment.

On the off-nights of Phish, American Beauty will host Phish & Grateful Dead themed trivia (Mondays) and one-time-only specialty concerts by local artists (Thursdays). A number of shows and entertainment will focus on the Grateful Dead’s music, including two shows with John Kadlecik Band, of Furthur, Dark Star Orchestra and featuring Jay Lane of Primus and RatDog on drums. Both pre & post shows on August 1st will be in celebration of Jerry Garcia’s birthday, with Half Step playing the Grateful Dead’s music for Jerry’s Birthday Jam before Phish, followed later that night by Reed Mathis & Electric Beethoven Celebrate Jerry's Birthday Phish After-Party.
