“You already know about Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Bill Nye. Now the founders of Caveat, a performance space on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, want to introduce you to the scientists you probably don’t know…”

–The New York Times

“At Caveat, no one is roasted for having

multiple doctorates. Science isn’t a cue for eye rolls. Instead, guests are admired for their academic mastery.”

-The New York Times

“A nightly enticement of the intellect for the discerning nerd”

-The New Yorker

“A showcase for the funny side of intellectualism”

-New York Magazine

“Caveat has carved a niche for its highly intelligent, alcohol-friendly series of science talks, storytelling, concerts, trivia competitions and live recorded podcasts”

– Chelsea Now

"I spent the last couple nights @caveatnyc. I've built hundreds events over the last 10 years and none of them have felt like home in the way Caveat has. Go there. Host an event there. Enjoy that a space like that exists."

- Kishore Hari, founding director Bay Area Science Festival
