About Caveat:

Caveat is a new event space on the Lower East Side.

At Caveat we believe that an evening out can be both smart and fun; that public talks can be transformative experiences; that there is craft and skill in bringing ideas to life, and we’re dedicated to making that vision a reality.

We’re creating a place where any night of the week you can come and have a fascinating experience with friends, colleagues, and strangers. There will be talks about science, literature, and art; discussions of politics aimed at bridges, not shouting matches; recreations of history where the audience guides the decisions, and all with wine, beer, food, and company.

And if you’re a creator, a speaker, a performer, then Caveat will be a place you can come to work on your material and be part of a community raising the bar on the public discussion and experience of ideas.
