Alcohol-free ~ Fully Wheelchair Accessible

New Location!
We have moved to The Judson Memorial Church Assembly Hall at 239 Thompson Street, New York NY 10012, in the heart of the historic Greenwich Village neighborhood! Please note that this is not the Judson main sanctuary on West 4th Street. The Assembly Hall is instead on the lower level of the church administration building around the corner, half a block south of Washington Square Park.
See map.

Our Fall 2022 Season begins Saturday, September 10, with
Bev Grant & Mario Giacalone with the Bev Grant Band!

Covid policies will be posted in the fall, pending state and local ordinances at that time.

PVC Solidarity Statement Against Racism

Peoples' Voice Cafe, started in 1979 by members of Songs of Freedom and Struggle, carries forward the vision of using songs and performing arts to support the struggle for peace and justice.

All are impacted by the history and ongoing practice of systemic racism in this country and the continuing brutal murders of Black Americans by police.

We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, outraged by the many faces of racism found in education, healthcare, housing, jobs, poverty, criminal justice, and voting. All must be free to move about in the "land of the free" without suspicion, harassment, or arrest.

Peoples' Voice Cafe stands committed to speak out, sing out, and work against racism, white supremacy, and indifference.
