    Best stage I have ever seen in a bar. The band was really tight. A girl I was with got thrown out for swearing after ordering a $6 water. Hey staff of Arthur's Tavern, don't flatter yourself.

    Incredible live jazz and blues music! Come on Thursdays or Fridays and listen to Sweet Georgia Brown and Off the Hook! Gets crowded, come early if you want a table.

    Intimate bar setting with great music and an even better vibe. There's a two drink minimum per set per person and it's cash only. Make sure to tip the band!

    Arthur's Tavern is an unassuming dive bar where you can always expect to find a dance party soundtracked by an amazing house band playing crowd-pleasing '70s soul and funk.

    Arthur's is the oldest jazz club still active in NYC. Each night is a great act. The Grove Street Stompers have performed there every Monday since 1962, the longest gig… (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Live music every night for the last 80 years, this dive music bar hosts a Motown funk band and a sweet jazz trio on Saturdays, but it sounds like every night is a treat! #nycmustsee

    The greatest jazz funk cover band on Saturday nights. Cash only. An old school gem of an institution in NYC.

    Such a fun scene, live music and an energetic crowd. Impossible not to have a good time, but warning: it's cash only.

    Only bad thing about this place is that I didn't find it sooner. Smooth motown songs performed by a great (sometimes changing) live band. cash only. no cover, but 1 drink min. per set ($10)

    The drinks are expensive and even the beers are overpriced but it's not like you're here for the alcohol. Just enjoy the music and don't forget to tip!

    Come for the jazz, hidden secret in NYC! Amazing vibe... If you can see the band 'off the hook'

    Make sure to tip Sweet Georgia Brown and her band... otherwise she might end up improvising lyrics about your personal life and get the bar to sing along.

    The atmosphere is fun, food & service better than expected, and the music very cool -- check out the Eri Yamamoto Jazz Trio, a jazz/acoustic/nu-jazz band!

    Free live jazz but the drinks suck. The two drink minimum is a PITA too.

    fun, eclectic, great jazz band. Halloween, Hannukah,4th of July, Christmas etc. decor everywhere. No rhyme or reason but fun nonetheless!

    Live music, friendly bartender. Not so much a dive bar so don't expect cheap drinks. Cash only.

    The most rude waitress I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. Do yourself and the world a favor and fire her.

    Small space, big sound. Bring your cash, wear flat shoes, and pee before you leave your apt.

    Horrible service. I got so mad that I downed my drink and left immediately. Blonde (older) lady tried sitting people on top of us and was very rude.

    Arthur's rocks. Dirty. Dingy. Awesome music. Bring your cash. Leave your attitude. If you bring a girl there on the first date and she OKs a second...she may be a keeper.

    Last time I was there a waitress told me about a time a taxi in the Bronx provoked a knife fight. Note: not the driver, car itself. She left it incapacitated in an intersection. Going back tonight.
