Besides it being a nice club, the music was tight. Had a great time learning about Mingus Supernova.

This is one of the great places for night-life to visit in NYC. One of two classic NYC Jazz clubs, Birdland is the other; include at least one of these two in your trip to NYC, if you like Jazz at all. The Jazz Standard...More

We go here several times each year. I like the small setting, good acoustics and the talent they bring in. Surprisingly, very good southern style food. Best fried chicken in Manhatten.
