We attended the 7:30pm show at the Jazz Standard last night. The show was a sellout on a Monday night, so you should consider buying tickets in advance rather than at the door. All seating is 'first come, first served'. Doors for our show opened at 6:15. We were there at 6:15 and glad we were! At 6:15 we could... More

We booked tickets on line for the Tierney Sutton 10:00 pm concert. No problem with the tickets, good seating, good selection of food. Concert started on time with welcoming staff. It was the first time that we had ventured out to a NYC club on our own but It worked and we enjoyed it.

Great set by Chris Bergson band at the Jazz Standard with family. They serve Blue Smoke Ale from the restaurant above and it's really good. The staff opened a new section to the side of the stage so we were able to sit close to the stage. They also serve Blue Smoke menu upstairs if you want a great meal.

This was my first taste of NY jazz, and seeing Jeremy Pelt and his band at this venue was amazing. The sound was great and price of admission decent. I would definitely recommend a visit to this venue as it attracts some of the more experienced performers on the scene.

Great music offerings, great sound, and not as packed in as many jazz clubs. This informal spot serves rather pricey, surprisingly good southern influenced food and the tables can be very close. You will hear all the pre-music conversations around you. Good idea to make a reservation, and you can just order a beer. The sets are about 60 minutes,... More

After seating ,we were attended to by a very arrogant waitress who didn't know what her job description is.For daring to complain we were refused wine and told that we seemed drunk ,though we drove all the way from Bronx to the location.The manager on duty was no help,he chose to side with the dumb waitress instead of his clients.Pity...

We recently visited Jazz Standard as part of a trip to New York. I am a big fan and have visited a couple on New York before and can say our experience was definitely up there in comparison. We went for the 7:30 show on a Sunday night and the room is quite convivial with a good view of the... More

This club delivers a solid package of good sound and good food. The layout is one of the best and the food is as good as it gets for a club. It is important to watch the schedule and find the artist that you are interested in. I really enjoyed it.

Jazz Standard is still among the best because so many other jazz clubs are flawed, charging a lot of money and taking advantage of the plentiful tourist trade. However Jazz Standard continues to slide. Once it was a Danny Meyer restaurant inside a great jazz club. Now it bears little resemblance to a Danny Meyer restaurant, where you expect the... More

There are so many great places to hear Jazz in NYC. What makes the Standard stand out? First, I always hear an interesting performance here in a cozy, intimate setting. Second the food from Blue Smoke -- the Danny Meyer barbecue joint upstairs -- is top notch. Third, the price is always reasonable. Fourth, the audience is knowledgeable and respectful.... More
