Great music and atmosphere in cool part of NYC

We went for brunch on a weekday and the place was still busy. Service was excellent and the food pretty good to. The highlight were the jazz musicians who were clearly very talented (even to me, and I'm no jazz expert!). Would definitely go back.

Although a little cramped around our table my first impression was not a good one however we made ourselves comfortable and sat back to watch the amazing Lisa Fischer. I have seen lots of artists but have never been so blown away with such an incredible performance. Our table server was excellent and very attentive to our needs. To be... More

Went and saw Chris Botti tonight. Great show and highly you go. Make sure to get the early or on time. Food and drink is OK, also over priced, so maybe eat before going. Don't do a big meal here

I believe we were tricked like many others - the combination of food and jazz at this place does not really work. Crammed at a small table with 4 other people, receiving very basic food from unfriendly waiters, paying a quite high bill for fastfood quality is not really a dining experience. Oh yes, the show was really good, and... More

My wife & I were really looking forward to this experience, especially since it was our 1st visit to New York. We bought tickets for the 8'Clock performance of the prog jazz trio 'Trio 3' on Tuesday 28th Sept 15. The restaurant provided the ideal setting for an intimate concert & the band did not disappoint, excellent musicians. Our meal... More

We visited for a Sunday morning jazz brunch and it was excellent. Good food (with a lot of variety), AMAZING MUSIC (as to be expected from such a prestigious venue), lovely setting and you can feel the history and ambience of such a special place. Highly recommended, even if you're not a jazz fan!

The Blue Note seems to attract major jazz talent and offers food and drinks. Arrive early to get good seating. We ended up right next to the bar when we arrived just 15 minutes before the performance, which was not a good location.

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.
