Cake Shop was a New York City music venue, bar, and cafe in the Lower East Side of Manhattan that opened in 2005. Located at 152 Ludlow Street between Stanton Street and Rivington Street, Cake Shop offered a full bar and records for sale, but it was best known as a rock club, hosting new and upcoming bands, as well as established acts almost nightly in its basement.

Due to rising costs associated with the neighborhood's gentrification and issues of sustainability related to the venue's "long running" business model,[1] the owners decided to close at the end of 2016. Cakeshop's final week was marked by nightly shows and special events. December 31, 2016 was Cakeshop's final night in operation.[2]
