Anytime you're at a great concert the small flaws in a venue never seem to come through. That was the case last night. We saw Earl Krugh and his fabulous band. The acoustics were excellent, no "dark dingy club odor" and timely table service. The only real downside was the tightness of seating. I fully get maximizing revenue by increasing... More

We heard Joe Gransden and Earl Kulgh . We did the 8:00 show for Joe and the 10:30 for Earl. We went an hour early for the 8:00 show and didn't have much choice for seats. Much less crowded and more seat choices for the 10:30 show. The French onion soup and shrimp cocktail were delicious

Went to see the Dizzy Gilespie big band and was absolutely floored. The food was amazing (I had the salmon and the cheese plate). The service was incredible. It's really packed in there, so not recommended for claustrophobics.

Came here on July 13 to see Ingrid Jensen. Was impressed by the decor and intimacy of the club. Grabbed a stage-side table. Enjoyed a local beer and INCREDIBLY delicious cheesecake!! The sound of the band and the club was incredible!! The wait staff was impeccable and the experience was extremely memorable. This is a fantastic jazz club!

Latin Jazz septet after dinner. Jam-packed club, huge sound. Audience average age probably 50+. But the USD 45 per person cover for the 22:30 set plus drinks maybe had something to do with the age.

A visit to Blue Note won't disappoint - we had 90 minutes of Latino Blues and it was the best experience, well worth the visit but make sure you book beforehand as these blues venues fill up quickly. We went here for the music and had been told that the food was very ordinary - the music was brilliant and... More

Had a fantastic evening at the Blue Note last week, seeing Victor Wooten and his guests. We arrived about 45 mins early for the first 'sitting' and that was a wise move - no standing in line, brought in and given a choice of tables. Have to admit my first thoughts were that I had no wish to be seated... More

We did not eat here, only drank, but we went to see Victor Wooten who was absolutely amazing! And the combo that played afterwards from Barcelona where also awesome. Get in line at least 45 minutes early, if not sooner, in order to have a chance to be seated closer. We were packed in like sardines but the waitstaff handled... More

The artists are always fantastic at this club but the cueing outside system can be frustrating. It feels quite touristy as a club but the performance will not disappoint!

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.
