    Maybe my favorite place in the city? Great, intimate space. Mirrors strategically placed so you can really see how the pianist and drummer play. Performers are incredible and magnetic.

    Great small live jazz club. Friendly staff, cheap beer and well spent 20$ entrance fee which gives you also the right to enter the other Smalls club across the street.

    Listen to the best emerging stars in this quintessential jazz bar. Perfect for a relaxed, wine and music filled evening. The $20 cover charge is less than most places considering the quality of music.

    We had a great time here. People are cool and welcoming. "The Flail" was playing high quality music ! Well do not be surprised, the smalls is small ;-) you may want to arrive early to have a sit.

    Sunday fun-day takes on a new meaning. Go early, stay late. Late night jam session is great if you're looking for local flavor. Provides a community for musicians local and abroad. It's authentic.

    Spend an evening sipping on a drink and listening to fabulous jazz with other music aficionados. The $20 cover is cheaper than other joints and well worth it.

    Tiny, dark, and always packed, Smalls is the city’s quintessential, late-night jazz club, where emerging stars jam until the wee hours. Mon-Sun: 4pm-4am | $20 cover after 7:30pm

    Get there near the tail end of the matinée sessions (4pm-7pm) and the cover's only $10. NEVER a drop in quality, always only the finest jazz musicians.

    Just walk down the stairs, seat as close as you can to the stage, order a G&T and let yourself go. Pure NYC Jazz vibe on an untoppable location.

    Been years since I've been here, but it was an incredible time. Got to the bar at 1130pm, and listened to a small group do a jam session on a random Thursday night. It was a great experience.

    $20 cover is well worth the quality jazz you get. Stay all night if you want. Definitely a cool low key NY establishment.

    Get there early if you want a front row seat, but any seat in the house is great for sound, relax, don't worry bout it

    Some amazing musician plays here!! Make sure to arrive a little early to take a seat, as the name suggests the place isn't big.

    Careful with the bartender. We asked for a russian mule And a whole chunk of ginger came in The glass. It should be an accent of ginger not a whole piece of it. Not sure if he/she knew The recipe.

    The cheapest cover charge at any jazz club in the city. Only $20 and good all night - try asking for that at the vanguard or blue note and be prepared to be laughed at.

    The original Smalls was a raw basement space that quickly became the late-night hangout for a multi-generational assortment of jazz musicians.
