Some things defy categorization. We live for those things. This is where you'll find the truly unique, the "only in Chinatown" items, or the "only in Chinatown New York City" characters that make a neighborhood come to life.



The Five Points Variety Hour Music & Comedy
Asia Roma
40 Mulberry St.

One of the deepest mysteries of Chinatown is who will show up to perform at The Five Points Variety Hour, "an eclectic mix of music, hip hop, poetry, comedy, trash talk, and spontaneous insanity" that plays to a diverse crowd every Friday night at 8:00 in the basement under the Silk Road Cafe.  

Not a family show, it's "Unfiltered. Uncensored. Unpredictable." Best of all, it's FREE.
