I had to give it one bubble as zero bubbles is not an option. We went there, on the recommendation of friends, on our last night in NYC. The cover was $35, which was outrageous, but we thought it was going to be good. How...More

I was invited to New York for my first time and went to Birdland for an evening of Jazz and drinks/snacks before dinner, it was an amazing experience with quality Jazz music!! A must experience and it’s right down where everything is happening!

A little jazz with dinner? Yes, thank you. Perfect way to spend our last night in the city. This was exactly what we were looking for. Will definitely be back.

This is a great jazz club - a national treasure - near the Theatre District in Manhatten, NYC. The space is great - probably not a bad seat in the house and the sound is fantastic. Definitely a great place to go for music aficionados.

While we don't go to Birdland to eat, one can see people there enjoying their meals. We go for the music, which is always excellent whether it's a headliner or the house Big Band. Service is always very friendly and accommodating. You feel like a...More
