    Home to Jazz for over 70 years and still showcasing some of the best talent in the world. Make sure you arrive early for your reservation – you just might lose your seat.

    For all its downtown cool, this place is a stickler for tradition. They like a quiet, moody feel, and they enforce it. If you’re with a chatty group you may want to go to the Vanguard another time. Read more

    Intimate and traditional jazz club, a must-go if you enjoy good music. Make reservations at the site and plan to arrive 30 minutos before the show as seating works on a first-come first-served basis.

    This world famous jazz-club keeps its promises. A beautiful old ambience, where you can lean back and simply enjoy the brilliant music. And on top of that, you get it for an affordable price.

    Make sure you arrive early as this is a popular place. Enjoy a cocktail and switch off your cell phone to fully appreciate the music.

    A piece of music history in Greenwich Village. Terrific room, wonderful acoustics. If you can avoid it, don't sit near the bar - it can be distracting from the real reason you're going to the Vangua

    Jazz history at your fingertips. Don't miss it, book a reservation, arrive early -- it gets really crowded. Great music, respectful audience, 3 sets per night.

    Love this club, it's small so you're very intimate with the artist. Plus there's photographs of the jazz greats that played here in the past. Nice, cool vibe.

    No food, well drinks, awkward room, AMAZING music. Go to the first set, pay one cover, stay all night and only pay the drink minimum for each additional set. You couldn't possibly regret it! LOVE!!!

    Transport yourself back to the late 50s and enjoy an intimate experience. Sets are exactly one hour long which is perfect: leaves you wanting more before you get bored.

    A mythic place. You have to go there if you love music.
  • Washington Square Hotel
    Opening in 1935, the club went to an exclusive jazz format in 1957 where many famous recordings were made by jazz luminaries. Fantastic acoustics.

    Come early. Best tables are at the front and they're taken well in advance, first-come first-serve

    After 30 years—during which time John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Bill Evans grooved here—this basement club still hosts the crème de la crème of mainstream jazz talent. Doors open at 8pm.
