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

Went here on a Sunday for 1:30pm brunch with another couple. We all really enjoyed ourselves. Very intimate room. The live Jazz was excellent. Food was so/so but it was more than OK. Remember you are going there for the music. I really recommend. Reservations are a must and get there at least 45 minutes before your showtime so you... More

We had reservations for the 8pm show for Roy Haynes 90 birthday celebration. The musicians did not take stage until close to 8:30, they did not start playing music until maybe 8:45, so we did not even get a full hour show. The fee was $60 per person ($55/ head plus $5 each per set) to sit at the table,... More

We visited Blue Note Jazz Club in the Village on Sunday for their $35 jazz brunch which included food, a drink and a wonderful show. Get there at least an hr before to get the best seats. If you love jazz, this place is legendary!

This really deserves the great reputation it has. Nice place to enjoy listening to some great jazz. The bar is good enough.

Great vibes and ambiance at The Blue Note. I went with my mother to enjoy the Mardi Gras show. We reserved a table and arrived half hour before the show so we could have the best seat in the house which we defiantley did. The food was tasty and our server was delightful. The blue lights and great music provide... More

This is the worst venue ever. I called in advance for disability accommodations for my 90 year old mother and the manager said, "First come, first served as we do not reserve tables." With that said, I did not take my mother and waited outside in the rain for 30 minutes until the 10:30 p.m. doors opened 45 minutes late... 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.
