My husband had visited some years ago and was keen for me to experience. Our hotel made the booking and everything was seamless - no queuing, good table and good service. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the show.

Having some time off from business we went to a restaurant/jazz club Blue Note at Minato. It's a part of chain of Blue Note Jazz clubs and this one is far bigger and better than the one in NYC (told by a friend who seen both just recently). Cover fees for music start from 7500JPY and go up subject to... More

Nice venue , not over crowded. drinks and food on the expensive side but what will you expect right ? If you wanna be on the best seats , it's better you make a reservation in advance. Every two weeks or so , they have new artist playing , so better check their website for updates. I was there for... More

Music - fantastic Well organised. Champagne - good value If you are into jazz you must try Blue Note in Minato. It will cost you a pretty penny but it is worth it.

This jazz venue is awesome. Not cheap but the brilliant acoustics and groovy surrounds make it an experience to remember. It's the place to hear the best of the best. We just saw Lee Ritenour and Dave Grusin - absolutely awesome! There are always two sittings. You need to book tickets but you have to show up early to get... More

Been here many times and need to say this is probably the best bar (with New York Bar in Shinjuku) I have ever been. This is a tipical old fashioned bar, with a live jazz music better than a live concert. The atmosphere is wonderful, and really being in this bar is a pleasure. Over here you can drink whatever...

This club is excellent. The room is bigger than New York. The food is really good. The service was great and the seating better than New York's venue. A higher price tag but worth it. Too bad Dave Weckl had to bad mouth the crowd under his breath. Said the audience would not know the difference for an encore to... More
