What great place to listen to great jazz artist. A must go place and a must have experience when you have friends from out of town.....unfortunately it is a bit touristy lately rather than an old school jazz club. Therefore the sessions are short and pricey.

Yes I know this is iconic which is why we paid up the $45 dollars per head to "reserve a table". Actually you do not reserve a table you reserve a chair on a shared table crammed into a small space where if you wish to go to the bathroom you have to ask at least 5 people to move.... More

The live music was excellent and as the club was quite small and cosy we were very close. We booked in advance but still had to queue for a long time to ensure that we got in as it is very popular. The food is good but basic but you really go for the music and the atmosphere.

The line up is just: WOW It's the temple of Jazz. On line reservation is higly recommended. I suggest the late show so you can have the oppurtunity to have a quick talk to the artists

One night 8 pm session I was there. What great place to listen to great jazz artist. A must go place and a must have experience. Unfortunately it is a bit touristy lately rather than an old school jazz club. Therefore the sessions are short and pricey. The food still good. The service is quick and friendly.

Yes, I know it's a tourist trap and eventhough I don't live right now in New York, I've lived there in the past and I don't consider myself a tourist... Music: There are always interesting, talented, well-known musicians! Sound is good and, if you get early, you can sit at a nice spot. So no complains about that. Food: Below... More

Native new yorker's first visit. Sat down 6 30 for dinner. Place is cozy. Food was good but you don't go to the blue note for food. It's the music. Duke Ellington band/orchestra. Cmon now. Hour and a half of magic. Acoustics wonderful. Dreamlike. I suppose the 20's cotton club was better but I loved it and without a smoke... More

Whenever I travel to NYC I check to see who the Blue Note has performing. I always enjoy the diversity of artists that play this venue. Although they pack you in like sardines..the aound quality is fantastic in all parts of the room-the service is always good and the performers are usually very talented and worth the cost of the...

I came here because my out-of-town friend is a Jazz fanatic. That being said, I found the place to have a very intimate atmosphere. The place is a little "crampy".....could use a few more square feet. Crowd looked very passive (maybe that's what Jazz crowds usually are). Dinner was OK with OK service.

We visited the blue note on a previous trip to NYC several years ago. We knew it is very touristy yet hoped the quality of the music would overcome everything. We were sooooo wrong. The place is way overcrowded the food is less than mediocre and way overpriced the service is very pushy and unpleasant and worst of all -... 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.
