    Going alone? Sit at the bar. Going with friends? Grab a table. It's all good and it's all worthy. One of the best known jam sessions and open mics anywhere. Best of all: no cover + $10 Minimum.

    Unlike most other jazz clubs, Cleo’s has no cover charge–music to our ears! Also, the open-mic night sessions are a fun way to listen to lesser-knowns showing off their pipes or jamming skills. Read more · January 9, 2012

    Rachael Ray makes her way to Cleopatra's Needle, on the Upper West Side in New York, NY, for a Mediterranean meal and live jazz, on Food Network's $40 a Day. Find more tips at FN Local. Read more

    Like the creation of Central Park, the effort to acquire the obelisk from Egypt was seen as key to New York's status among the great cities of the world. Thousands attended its erection in 1881.

    Delicious, reasonably priced food and great live jazz. The evening jam sessions rock! Martinis are so-so, but it's a terrific value in an intimate setting. (We hate the downtown crowds.) Read more

    The jazz is great but the food isn't exceptional like everyone says. However for a cool late summer evening the atmosphere is perfect and there's no cover so it's hard to complain

  • Ari P.
    Fantastic place for dinner, drinks, and jazz. Great happy hour til 730. Get the French, wild passion, or Bellini martinis, and the kofta kebab is excellent.

    Come for the music, stay for...nothing else. Cleo's attracts some amazing talent but unfortunately the same can't be said for the kitchen and bar.

    A bit of a mature (think senior citizens who seem to be the regulars) crowd on Sundays with visitors but half priced drinks make for a good afternoon.

    It bothers me how the bathrooms and the kichen r so close. The food comes past the toilet on the way to your table. Great music lousy food and presentation. Just drink alot

    The music here ranges from good to amazing. But the service whether at the bar or at a table is consistently slow when it's anything but empty

    Love the Pasta al Pesto, too bad they don't serve it with pine nuts as they used to do.

  • Sarah W.
    Great vibe and primo live music, but don't come if you're looking for a quality feed. You'll get a tastier shish kebab from a street vendor.

  • Jessica M.
    Waited over an hour for music and nothing. Service also didn't help us at all. Hoping it was just an off night.

    Cozy place, great band. The food is a bit pricey but hey, you get music for free!

  • Brooke S.
    Super cute restaurant with great atmosphere, but we were charged for soda refills. Since when is that a thing, Cleopatra?!

  • Sabrina M.
    Clearly chatting quietly in a restaurant is frowned upon by bitchy old women who think their karaoke-esque singing is real jazz.

    Happy hour is great. A glass of blanc de blanc and a blue moon for 10.50.

    Skip the beer on tap because it's crap.
