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

Agree completely with "Brownstone", as we were there on the same night of 16 September and were also knocked out by Lou Donaldson, sitting about 2 metres from him. An 88 year old jazz powerhouse, from the 1950s, still blowing ! Tables and chairs are close together, but we got to chat with a couple from Poland. Food is acceptable... More

Great place but expensive for what you get. The atmosphere was rigid and the staff didn't smile.. Well our waitress certainly didn't! The music was great but to be honest, had such a better time in a Jazz Club in London than New York which dissappointed us, we had high expectations.

We go often to see many of the jazz greats. Last night it was Lou Donaldson a master of jazz who at 88 is still blowing his horn like a teenager. You come here for the Jazz. It's very tight sitting some called it intimate. But it's a wonderful way to meet new people. Last night we met 4 people... More

About two months before we went to New York City, I was researching for an appropriate evening to visit this world renowned Blue Note jazz supper club. It was a stroke of luck that the evening featuring Kenny G had three seats left. With internet tickets in hand, we were there an hour ahead (others were turned away at the... More

Theo Croocker and DeeDee Bridgewater made me love this place irremediably. I could not have asked for a better experience.

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.
