Went to NYC for my birthday to see a Broadway show and also to listen to the great McCoy Tyner at the Blue Note. Got there a hour before the show. Seating was tight. Menu choices were great but the food was mediocre at best...More

It’s too cold inside this evening. I understand that we’re in America and nobody is interested that there are elegant people, but people with jackets and scarfs are ok. I paid a ticket and I was going to listen to the music in a comfortable...More

My wife and I were in the city celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, and one of our pre-determined activities was to visit the "well-known" venue (Blue Note) to catch the jazz trumpeter, Keyon Harrold. We purchased the tickets on-line and made a reservation for 6...More

Very famous and relevant club for jazz and soul era. Quite small place with small tables and lots of people. Higher entrance fee, probably varies according performance. Reservation mostly required.

The Blue Note is a jazz venue that has been in the West Village for many years. You go there for the music. The rest is not as good. The space is small and even intimate but as with so many similar venues they pack...More

Get here early (which may mean standing in line for awhile). It is a nice venue and it had great acoustics. The performers interact with the crowd and all seating is good. You can see the stage from anywhere you sit. Drinks were good and...More

Go eat somewhere else before and come here for the great music! Come early to get a good seat close to stage.

Great music, great atmosphere, the mecca of Jazz in the world. You can book a table online or you can walk in and sit by the bar. If you decide to just turn up, try to be there early as the queue start to form...More

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.
