Paying your bill at a restaurant, bar, or nightclub should never be a hassle, and with MyCheck, a mobile payment app that allows you to check yourself out of a restaurant or bar without waiting for the check or the credit card slip, it doesn’t have to be. For more information on the awesomeness that is MyCheck, see the NearSay business profile.
In an effort to make going out in NYC more convenient for New Yorkers, MyCheck features a new restaurant, bar or nightclub each week that now accepts the mobile payment app. This week’s Merchant of the Week is Stand Up NY, featuring some of the best standup comedians around town.
Stand Up NY opened in 1986, after the owner Dani became inspired to open a comedy club in support of his two high school friends who were standup comics. The comedy club made its home on 236 West 78th Street and has remained at this location ever since, bringing audiences to tears of laughter with every performance. In fact, over the years audiences may have caught comedy routines by the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Ray Romano, Robin Williams, Chis Rock, and John Steward, just to name a few. Who knows, after the show you may just catch a glimpse of Mr. Seinfeld, a comic who built his “funny career” on stages like this one – after all, he happens to live right around the block.
The comedy club was designed by Steve Lewis, the same designer for Hotel Chantelle, TAO, and Hudson Terrace. While the décor is classic, the comedy club has recently renovated their website and their famous YouTube page with over 10,000 views.
Friday, March 1st – Auditions are being held at the comedy club for the infamous Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival.
Tuesday, March 5th – Charity Event (check online for more information)
For a complete list of upcoming shows and events, and ticket information, visit the comedy club’s website.
The nightlife scene in NYC can be hectic and thrilling all at the same time. Comedy clubs generally include a good amount of waiting, as everyone asks for the check at the end of the performance at the same time. Add in paying with a credit card on top of that and you could be waiting to leave for quite a while. Why not spend more of your time enjoying a hilarious comedy show at Stand Up NYC and less time worrying about waiting to pay the bill? Download mobile payment app MyCheck and visit the comedy club for a carefree evening of laughter minus bill payment annoyance.
