Welcome to 5C!

5C Cultural Center was the inspiration of five lower east side residents during the early 1980s. With firm roots as artists, educators, gardeners and urban homesteaders, we survived the turbulent times of “alphabet city”. Thus we share a belief in retaining the best historic and cultural traditions of the neighborhood while continuing to foster empowerment in this diverse community. We offer delicious, affordable food plus wine and beer.

Here's the news from 5CCC.
We are now open with a new kitchen, and a pro chef serving exciting new comfort food!
Open 11am Tue – Sun (closed Mondays)

5C Cultural Center is one of the venues for the annual Dissident Arts Festival
