We paid for reservations for 3 and at the last minute our friend couldn't join us, so we were out $35 - Oh Well. Otherwise a good evening. I have heard of the Blue Note for jazz for years and nice to finally go. We shared a couple of appetizers for dinner, the cheese and fruit was very nice, and... More

We went to the club specifically for the jazz but went early to eat so we'd have better seats. We were pleasantly surprised to find the food was delicious and the drinks were perfection. Amazing bartender. The service was impeccable. Even though the seating was very tight, when you sit with other jazz lovers you don't even notice.

If you want to listen to awesome jazz players, don't miss it. The cost of the entrance worths every penny. If you want to dine, do it somewhere else. Food is expensive for what you receive . Just have a drink whilst you listen to great music.

Before eating you kinda know what you're in for, it's an upscale jazz club with the worlds finest musicians, of course it will be expensive but they do good food.

Don't be put off by the reviews that say this place is cramped and the food isn't great. Eat somewhere else and then just embrace the joy of sharing a table with complete strangers that solo love jazz. We saw Ron Carter, Don Harrison and Billy Cobham - sublime. This place is a must - book online before you travel... More

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

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.
