“Great venue for music”
Review of Jazz Standard

Jazz Standard

Have been here a number of times, great food from BBQ upstairs so definitely come hungry. Every seat is a good one, though the club is tightly packed. With the exception of one group, the music is excellent. Pricey tickets!

We were literally staying round the corner from Jazz Standard and were lucky to get in on a Friday night. We grabbed a couple of drinks whilst waiting in line for the previous performance to finish and were shown to a lovely table in an intimate setting. The staff, particularly our waitress, were great. It's a skill to be able to serve quietly and courteously whilst people are on stage. Food was amazing. I'd fly back to NY just for the Brown Butter Sweet Potato Mash! And the Key Lime Pie was in a league of its own...

It turns out that contemporary jazz/ the Vijay Iyer Trio isn't really our thing but it didn't matter, the atmosphere and food alone made it our best night in the City.

If you are NYC you must go to a jazz club and there are many. The Jazz Standard is as good as it gets. The right size of club with great views and excellent sound. The artists are why you go and they have a great line up! You won't be sorry. Most recently my sons and I went to see Randy Weston and his group and they were absolutely fantastic. Inspirational! High energy! Artistic excellence! Don't pass this up. This is a showcase for real "American Music"!

this is what a jazz venue should be like - intimate, great acoustics. Great to have full meal available - enjoyed the BBQ and southern-style menu. Good service. Saw the regular Monday night Charlie Mingus big band. This is definitely Mingus tribute band with lots of instruments, big rich sound, heavily orchestrated Mingus pieces, not a lot of improv - so if you want to go on Monday night, best to be into this style of jazz. Kids are allowed which is nice, and my 16 year-old enjoyed the experience.

Went there for a late night show after Broadway. It is far enough off Times Square that you don't get the annoyance of quite so many tourists. It's a nice little place to grab some late night eats and listen to good music. Fried chicken and cornbread are a must. The chicken is enough for at least 2.
