We saw Roy Ayers and had a great night! Be prepared for close company - they pack you in but it just adds to the atmosphere! We would suggest you eat before you get there as once the show starts you can't see your food. Just enjoy the show and drinks. Music lasted for only about an hour but it... More

Fabulous, couldn't have been closer to the amazing band. The food was better than expected although not amazing but really didn't matter.

I have not been to this club in mnay years and am glad that I have returned to hear Stanley Clarke and McCoy Tyner. The entertainment was great, but perhaps a bit too loud in spots. ( I am a sensitive musician. ) The tables are very crowded. I did not order food, just a Scotch and Water which took... More

Stopped in without a reservation but was able to get a table because we got there an hour before the first set. We were blown away by the music. We found that wine by the bottle was a best deal. We started with the cheese and fruit plate which was generous and tasty and finished with the French onion soup.... More

The place is great for concerts, great sound and everywhere you sit you are close to the stage but it is recommended to come early and enjoy better seats. However, the food and drink prices are outrageous even in NYC standards.

This was one of our highlights of the trip to NYC. Alexis Cole is the best singer I´ve ever heard perform. I will most definitely be back to Blue Note jazz the next time I will be in NYC. The food was pretty good but the music was great!

I have been in New York so many times and never took time to visit the Blue Note. Now I think I cannot go back without going back to this place. It is quite intimate and old style small club. They have drinks and decent food. The main thing is the music, which varies as they have so many great... More

Visited the historic Jazz Club, the Blue Note in Greenwich Village, NYC where legends like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, Ray Charles, MJQ, McCoy Tyner & many other jazz artists had performed. Visited in September 2015 where saxophonist Lou Donaldson & his quartet performed. He set his 'Alligator Bogaloo' swinging even though he is now ageing! A good show... 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.
