Great Jazz Brunch

You have the Garage and you have Blue Note for brunch. Always good music and the food is fine. Fabulous and first class performers.

We took a brunch at Mother’s Day. We have made a reservation on-line, but it was not necessary. We were 10 minutes late and music show has already started. Judy Wexler was singing nice and whole feeling was cosy, including the food and wine. The Blue Note is one of holy places in NYC for me, so I have had... More

We went to see a jazz band called "Combo Nuvo" and very smart we had made reservations in advance. Professional staff welcomed us and expectations were high. But you shouldn't go there for the brunch menu. We adults survived but our son ended up with butter/cinnamon fried toast and scrambled eggs. With syrup. Strange meal for a European .... Jazz...

Music was good, food was mediocre, very tight seating, kind of expensive, though not more expensive than other things in New York. So we had a nice time and I'm glad I went, but I didn't feel the value or the need to return.

Other than the hostess not initially seating us in the American Express reserved seats we should have been in, our overall experience was pretty good. We saw Ron Carter Trio which was terrific. The place was crowded and our server did her best to get to all of her tables quickly. Because she had so many, it was tough to... More

We've been to all of the jazz clubs in Los Angeles but wanted to visit the best jazz club in the world, The Blue Note in NYC. Went to see the Ron Carter Quartet on a Sunday evening, with the place packed to the rafters. It was clear that the Blue Note is a Mecca for jazz lovers and the... More

Despite what you might read elsewhere, real NYC jazz fans don't frequent this reverse ATM machine. We don't like paying lots of money to sit sideways, like little sardines, subjecting ourselves to the noise of people eating, and the chit-chat of tourists who don't care about the music. If you want real jazz, Mezzrow, The Village Vanguard, and The Jazz... More

Excellent time at Blue Note. Small, intimate club. Great crowd. Dinner was not great, but service was good. Really enjoyed the experience.

Rachelle Ferrell had a nervous breakdown on stage last night. She barely sang one song! And she kept talking about dead entertainers and crying on stage. Said she visited the hotel where Donny Hathaway jumped to his death. Mention Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. We kept thinking oh she gonna pull it together. Then she got up and left and...

Went for the Jazz but was surprised to find the food was quite good. Tables are very close together so best to check a large coat which costs a dollar up front. If you get there a bit early you get a better choice of seats. For an 8:00 show doors open at 6 but arrival around 7:00 works pretty... 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.
