Wow. We were very excited for our visit for Sunday Brunch at the Blue Note. The music was great but the food was terrible! The french toast looked gray and the bread was so thick it did not absorb the egg at all. The shrimp and avocado sandwich was a mess. There was no love in the preparation at all.... More

We had a wonderful evening with friends and family seeing Tuck and Patti at the Blue Note. Their show was just gorgeous. Our drinks were good (the waitstaff is unbelievable: how do they manage to take orders, serve everybody and remain so quiet so that there are no disturbances during the performance? Bravo!) We ordered a fruit and cheese tray... More

We reserved tickets for the 10:30 CD release show of the John Fedchock Big Band. The variety of jazz styles provided by the 15 piece ensemble was excellent. It is wise to arrive early (like we did) for a better seat selection, since the club is still its original small and tightly packed size. The drinks and food were average,... More

My family and I had an unforgettable night here. We're all huge jazz fans, so a visit (pilgrimage) to the Blue Note while in NYC was mandatory. We had a great night with lots of good wine and delicious steaks while listening to Ron Carter perform. The staff were really helpful and attentive, and we had a great time. I... More

Legends come and go, but they stop at the Blue Note. While we were there to see Roy Haynes, Christian McBride and Dee Dee Bridgewater stopped by to play and sing. I just hope this haven never closes. It's the right size and the staff knows what they're doing so you only have to sit back and listen.

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.
