while you have a good drink, you'll get the best of this city. No tickets, no hassle, just good jazz

“One of the best NYC Places...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011 via mobile

Seriously--I'm a critic. This place is just perfect. Great music. Ambience Total Village experience. Cash only. You'll dance all night long. I'd be here every night if I could.

“Same old, same old - great jazz club”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

This is a great place to visit - you know what you get! The Grove Street Stumpers has played here since the 60thies and still have one from the original band in the set. It is good old jaz, and every now and then, someone brings his/her instrument (or voice) and sit in with the band.

It is just so cool and friendly.

Some of the artists are somewhat "worn out", but you mostly get a nice show - and often this tiny place becomes a moving animal when everyone joins in the dance.

No cover, but a minimum of one drink per set. Be careful with the Long Island Ice Tea - it is strong :)

“Great Music - Greenwich Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

The night we visited it was blues/funk. Arthur's is very small but very cozy. Great way to meet people. Band was awesome especially before the featured singer came out. She changed the style a bit. Just my personal preference. Great service. Fun night.

“AWESOME BLUES BAR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2011

Great atmosphere and very very close quarters..we've been a few times and on Friday's we had the pleasure of hearing Sweet Georgia Brown..love her pipes! Great blues and awesome audience participation...shots of liquor averaged $10/per, no cover charge..though the band will pass around a tip bucket..and they earn every dollar...NO CREDIT CARDS..CASH ONLY..which is good to know. Whenever we go to NYC we make it a point to spend at least one evening here...hint..write the name of the hotel your staying in ahead of time and just hand it to the taxi!!!
