3 days in Brooklyn New York

I am planning a 3 day bachelorette weekend in Brooklyn New York. We are all in our mid 40's so there is no need for strip clubs and too much partying. We will stay at the Akwaaba Inn in Bed-Stuy. I need suggestions on jazz clubs, theater and caterers for a luncheon. Please advise.

I would start with asking the Inn. I believe there are more jazz clubs in Manhattan.


Has a good list. Where do you intend on having this lunch catered? If at the Inn, you really need to ask them. Most would be looking for a restaurant for the luncheon.


Has a section on restaurants with private rooms.


might also be helpful.

Could satisfy TWO requirements - jazz and luncheon =-)

Brooklyn has loads of jazz clubs - unless you are looking for A-list headliners, it is not necessary to cross the bridge.

http://www.yelp.com/c/brooklyn/jazzandblues will be helpful

Also check out http://www.thebellhouseny.com/ - it has a wide variety of entertainment, sometimes jazz, sometimes not, but it is a great venue for a group - fun, user-friendly, reasonably priced. And they DO get Headliner acts - Norah Jones, Lenny Kravitz, for example, recently


You didnt say when you are coming, but you can check their calendar in advance - if you cant tell what kind of show something is by the calendar, you can just give them a call

Something I want to go to at some point in Brooklyn in Bed/Stuy is Jazz in a brownstone. There was an article in the NY Times about it nytimes.com/slideshow/…20120415JOINTss.html

Not sure if it would be for a luncheon though, but may be worth looking into.
