I reserved my ticket online with great expectations, after hearing many good reviews from friends. The music and atmosphere certainly did not disappoint -- they had a great lineup for the whole month, in fact. And yes, it was crowded and limited view of the stage would have to be expected. The service was good considered how many of us... More

We also has a dissapointing experience at the Blue Note. The manager was rude and tables were ridiculously close together; to the point where you couldn't walk between each table. We would have ate but there wasn't room on the table to do so. We would have been able to overlook the terrible venue if the performance was good. However... More

A great venue showcasing some of the world's best jazz. It seems a shame that they run "sittings" rather than letting the musicians play on (there were three shows on the night we visited) but the quality of the music overrode everything. The staff were fast and efficient and full of character and the view of the stage and sound... More

Love the Blue Note. It's an intimate venue to see some of the best jazz performers. Food and service are good.

This is the perfect club to listen to great music up close and personal. Went to hear the Yellowjackets who were outstanding. Yes, seating is tight but its NYC - every space comes at a premium. We sat on the end/aisle in the upper level which gave us a great view of the stage. Due to how the tables are... More

Blue Note is a jazz icon and one that I had been wanting to visit for many years. The band was sensational. Food and drinks were pricey, but that was expected for a music venue.

What a classy jazz club! Dinner was great ... the entertainment/show was second to none. If you are visiting NYC and like superior entertainment, you won't want to miss the opportunity to experience an evening here.

Was really looking forward to my first bluenote experience. Unfortunately they have one agenda to cram as many people in as possible and still have a table charge. We couldn't move once seated, average food and service without a smile. Seriously the most miserable staff in New York. Unless there is someone on there you are desperate to see, avoid... More

We enjoyed wonderful jazz performance by a great group of musicians. The atmosphere (despite very crowded place) was warm and friendly. Our big disappointment was with the food: Despite the very high menu prices, the quality of food, the taste, and the service were less than mediocre. The chef really has to return to cooking school to learn some basics.... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
