    This is a great little museum - little being the operative word. It's basically all housed in one room but what there is, is nicely laid out, easy to read and for a donation of $10 was a nice way to spend an hour or so.

    Still the best, and my NYC go-to, I really hope I never outgrow pub crawls. Always nice people. Free shots with normal drink orders. A no-brainer night out with all the genuine New York excitement and charm. Cheap buzz and party paid for. No complaints.

    Loved it. Will definitely come back. Get a reservation a couple weeks early. The servers were excellent and the comedians were hilarious. Sat in front row - noticed that by end of night everyone in front was spoken to in some shape or form. Two item minimum but can get bottle waters.

    We saw Jim Caruso's Cast Party. We thought our teen would enjoy the open mic aspect. The performers were extremely talented and entertaining, so much so you couldn't wait to see what the next would do. The band was unbelievable. They accompanied most acts without sheet music and then Jim Caruso himself was effortlessly hilarious. We were sat at a table right in front, a couple feet from the stage. We all had a blast!

    Best dive bar ever. Cheap as chips, great juke box, good people, free hot dogs. Been to NY many times, been to many bars and this is hands down, my favourite!

    First time and first night in New York. Had an absolutely great time in a brilliant venue. The staff were amazing, attentative but not intrusive. Would recommend to anyone wanting to hear some jazz in an amazing setting in New York.

    The club is quite small and the reservation is strongly recommended if you want to be sure to have a seat for the concert. You must take a drink. The music was fantastic. strongly recommended if you want to try an authentic jazz night.

    McSorleys is a must - sawdust on the floor, a taste of old NY with great homemade brews. When in hte Lower East Side don't pass it by

    This is shown as New York’s largest jazz club and, to be honest, this worried me. I wanted a small club for that special experience. However, I liked the sound of Joey Defransesco’s music so I booked to see him. Firstly, I subsequently realised I had double booked. I phoned the club and they couldn’t have been more helpful. I was keen to get a good table and we arrived at around 5.40 (just after the doors had opened) and were the first to arrive. In reality we could have arrived at 6.30 and still got a good table. The food was excellent but i suspect we should have shared a main course and ordered an extra side dish. The drinks were good, the service was satisfactory but the music was absolutely excellent. Ultimately that is the reason you go to a jazz club and we really enjoy listening to Joey’s magical trio. Could the set have been longer - well yes it could have been but you are only paying $35 a ticket so I think you have to be a bit realistic. Would we return - 100%.

    When you want an authentic jazz experience, make sure you buy tickets for the village vanguard. Come early to have the best seats.

    This place is so cool! I have always wanted to visit it. Prices are crazy but if you want to enjoy the Village, you cannot go to the Cafe Wha. My experience has been awesome, except for the price of 3 beers: 40💰!

    This Restaurant has permanently closed as of July 2020, due to Covid-19 situation in NYC. Cannot survive without Theater & Tourist trade. We have been loyal customers for over 20 years. Hate to say goodbye.

    The Shanghai margarita cocktail was great, but the cigar odor was absolutely overpowering. There was only one man smoking on the other side of the room (and it’s a pretty large area with high ceilings) and we could hardly breathe. Granted this is a cigar club, but we were only able to stay for one drink because it was so strong.
