Fun NYC thing to do. Uncomfortable chairs and cramped!

I went for the jazz brunch. Overall, the experience was a lot of fun. The musicians were great. There was very little room to sit, however. Butting up RIGHT behind you were other people. Make sure you are super skinny in order to fit! The food was just so-so, if not basic.

My hubby and I visited Blue Note to listen to Earl Klugh. It was his first night performing. We reserved a table so we could thoroughly enjoy the performance. It's a small venue so most seats have a good view of the stage. Be warned- seating is tight . Our table was meant for 8 persons. They give you seat... More

Reserve because place are almost reserved in advance. And I suggest to arrive early, to be in the first to have access. The room is small, but large. So, place in extremity are not really good… The rate for food, and bar are the same of NYC… And the feeling of be a guest on THE Blue Note is… great!

It's been my ambition to visit the Blue Note for so long - and it didn't disappoint! Great Seats at a great gig and loads of fun. Table service is fast and efficient and although the bar prices are steep it's well worth paying for the experience. Loved it!

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

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 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

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.
