Head towards the black door with the green light, on a side street nestled in NYC’s East Village, and you’ll discover the infamous No Malice Palace. Opening it’s doors in 1999, No Malice Palace quickly established itself as a local institution where patrons from all boroughs could congregate. With groovy beats and a laid back lounge vibe, a night out at NMP is nothing short of a quintessential NYC experience. Although the beloved founder Phil Sherman passed away, his benevolent and rambunctious legacy continues to live on within the walls of No Malice Palace.


“NYC’s Best Impromptu Party”

Time Out New York

“You would never know that behind a green light on a side street in the East Village lay this gem.” —Time Out New York

“Exceptional DJs spin rap and reggae while focusing on rare and old-school tracks.” —Yelp

“Its nondescript facade is conveniently incognito to the drunk and disorderly.” —Shecky’s Nightlife

“Low-key hideaway deep in the East Village revs up on weekends for a full-fledged party scene.” —Urban Spoon

“No Malice’s unmarked black exterior hints at a scruffy, biker bar edge, but a venture inside finds wide-planked hardwoods, old-school tin ceilings and wall sconces casting a mellow garnet haze.” —Citysearch

“Despite its low profile, No Malice has a diverse, unpretentious fan base of young downtowners.” —New York Magazine Critics Pick
