Donnie Kehr

They are the only club in Hell’s Kitchen where our guests can come and see good, live music on any given night. And the wings alone are to die for.”

Bar 9 ( owners Steven and Michael Padernacht are born and raised New Yorkers who grew up in the Bronx and now consider their atmospheric club in Hell’s Kitchen their home. “I know it may seem cliché,” Steven says, “but we truly have a Cheers type environment here.”

There’s a reason why patrons of the local and international variety both flock to Bar 9, a NYC staple for over 15 years. “People don’t think that live music and Hell’s Kitchen go together – but we have it right here, every night.” Steven considers Friday and Saturday nights to be the busiest as each week legendary Donnie Kehr (who most recently starred as Norm Waxman in the Clint Eastwood-movie adaptation of the play Jersey Boys) hosts the famed Dueling Pianos event, which just recently finished a successful run in Las Vegas but has now returned home to New York.
