Nice place to see jazz. All the jazz greats come through the "Jazz Corner of the World". Also, check out the Birdland Big Band on Friday evenings at 5:00. They're great. As an added bonus, they always end their shows by playing the song "Birdland". Hearing "Birdland", at Birdland? Mighty fine!

Wow, on a busy Saturday night in NYC, having a great dinner and going to a Broadway show; we thought that was great, but going to Birdland for drinks, snacks and the late night set ..... now that's living. Also, if you are lucky enough to go on a night with Jeff Lorber Fusion, a bonus. The late set starts... More

We heard Kurt Elling sing. Highly recommend. Here's even better in person than on recordings with a fine rhythm section Good and services were also great. I had the Creol gumbo and my wife had the fried chicken. Will go again.

For any NYC visitor, a trip to Birdland is a must. In additio0n to its place in history, Birdland offers a wide variety of musical performances. For lovers of Traditional Jazz, Wednesdays at 5PM presents the Louis Armstrong Eternity Band. Great music and great all-star musicians. For individuals with other tastes, Birdland presents top jazz and cabaret performers. Speaking of... More

Traveling to NY might be lots of pressure- specially if you're an alien. You're supposed to do all the shopping, otherwise people will think you're crazy... But shopping is not the real NY... So if you want a refreshing pause from all this you should definitely go to Birdland. Despi-te being very nearby the noisy and busy Times Square; it... More

Did Birdland now and before Blues Note. Found the whole experience better at Birdland. I'm not a jazz expert but really liked this Birdland show. Good food, good service!

First of all, they offer definetlyly top jazz performers, but also very good food with a good and friendly service. We listened to Catherine Russel and it was awesome; she's far better live than on CD.

Went to a Christmas show by Daniel Reichard. It is a jazz dinner club. The food and service was good and reasonably priced. It originally opened in 1949. If you have will call tickets your name will be on the guests with reservations list. There is no box office so no picking up tickets beforehand. Intimate room, probably not a... More

We had great seats for a very good show. The food was quite good for a jazz club—the vegetarian plate was yummy. They moved a lot of people through there for a first dinner seating and then two shows but you don't feel rushed.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
