Great big jazz club! I was pleasantly surprised at the Blue Note. Saw a fantastic big band- one of the best I've ever seen. Great service and food and not a bad seat in the house. Don't miss the Blue Note if you love live jazz.

I visited this club to see Robert Glasper Trio. My hubby got tickets one month+ago on their website. Price was a bit pricey, because only a few hundreds seats in the live hall. The hall was friendly and small space. My seat was in arena area and it was close to the stage. I felt really dynamic sounds in the... More

Whether you know Jazz or not, it's a very nice 'show & dinner' experience at Blue Note Tokyo! My friend and I booked only tickets (not specific seat) and, when we arrived at the venue 'on time,' there were already 69 persons/couples/groups before us! However, we were absolutely satisfified with what we could see and hear from where we were... More

The music was really good and came to see the artist on the bill, however it was really expensive and the service was really bad. If you really like the act on the bill and prepared to pay for it go but if not best avoiding

My husband and I live in Singapore (6-7 hour flight from Tokyo) and we've been to the Blue Note on 3 different visits seeing 5 different artists over the past 9 months or so. Clearly we love it here. The musical acts that come through are amazing. It's a great space, the crowds are always really into the music (no... More

The music and the food is very good! Nice atmosphere and its so big! We had a great evening! There is one thing I want to mention. It is like a concert. People are not chatting there watching. So keep in mind that you want to sit somewhere were you can see the stage and dont order to much food... More

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
