A7 was the unofficial headquarters for the New York hardcore scene from 1981 to 1984. Located at the corner of Avenue A and E. 7th St in the East Village, A7 lacked a liquor license and was constantly raided by the police. The club was staffed by members of the NY hardcore scene, including Raybeez of Agnostic Front and Warzone, and Jimmy Gestapo of Murphy's Law.

The Beastie Boys got their start here, back when they were a hardcore punk band. Other bands that frequented the location include The Violators, Minor Threat, SS Decontrol, The Eliminators, Power Trip, False Prophets and more.

Today, the building that housed A7 is now Niagara Bar. It features a mural of Joe Strummer on the exterior.
