Amazing place and great music - one of the best jazz venues I have ever been. I definitely would say yes, it is worth a visit.

Let me start by saying that I am a bit of a jazz snob - and have been in most of the clubs in NYC and elsewhere. This place is at the very top of my list, and is a "must do" for any jazz fan visiting the city. The club is small - the price is reasonable - the... More

Saw the Mingus Orchestra on Monday night with a bassoon quartet opening, since the International Double Reed Society's annual conference was in NY for the first time. Regular Mingus bassoonist Mike Rabinowitz was also playing in the quartet - what that man can play on a large woodwind instrument is amazing. The main show was also excellent, with a number... More

We were there in June for a great Afro-Cuban jazz show and everything was wonderful. Tables are tight but the service was excellent as is both the drink and food menu. The food comes from the Blue Smoke and it is the best bbq! The only negative was the price. I know it's Manhattan so on par with other locations... More

Booked this after a recommendation on Facebook. It was our first dinner after arriving in NYC for the first time. Tired and jet lagged we had no expectations at all. Turned out to be a good choice! The restaurant on the ground floor seemed a little boring and at first we thought we had come to the wrong place. A... More

Didn't know what to expect. Walked into a very cozy club. Service was warm and friendly. Surprisingly good smoked southern food. Good music, nice, homey ambiance. 20 piece band. How could you go wrong? Even my 22 year old daughter enjoyed it.

We are Jazz lovers, being in NYC means - get as much of it as we could. The venue is a bit overcrowded, but we had a good table and the setting is among other patrons, so we had the opportunity to sit next to a couple of New Yorkers on one site and another from Chicago on the other.... More

We are in the mid 50s as a couple but the audience average age was higher than us. We thought we would find some locals in the club but it was all touristy! Tables are quite large enough for couples comparing to other underground jazz clubs! Serving is friendly but late. Menu choices are very much limited to ribs and... More

We go here several times a year. I used to be sure this was the best jazz club in all of New York: friendly service, the best jazz club food, the most respectful management in a business that generally treats its customers like won't-be-back-again tourists (which most of them in fact are). For the most part these things are still... More

We went to see Maria Schneider's big band over Thanksgiving weekend with a large party. We reserved in advance and got a great table right where Maria was conducting. This review is about the venue, not the band, but I have to say that the band was totally excellent … everyone in the group was 100% invested in Maria's music.... More
