Jazz evening in this place was the highlight of our New York stay. Make sure you have a seat and go early: around seven. Benches to sit on and wait outside. Excellent music, reasonable price, cosy cellar in a lively part of town.

Brilliant, intimate venue, where people are serious about jazz but laid back about everything else. If it's not a NY legend - it deserves to be

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
