  • Cleopatra's Needle
    Named after the iconic Central Park monument, Cleopatra’s Needle has earned a reputation of its own with a daily schedule of open mics, jam sessions, and jazz performances. As one might expect, the club’s menu references Egypt and other Mediterranean locales, though its cocktail list is classic New York—martinis, wines, and frozen drinks are all well represented. While the performers are taking a break to warm up their vocal cords or massage the grand piano’s tense strings, guests can watch local sports on the big screen.

  • Garage Restaurant & Cafe
    The stage at Garage Restaurant & Cafe has hosted the saxophone-shredding, piano-pounding, guitar-plucking performances of more than 55 rotating jazz performers. These live acts range from solo artists to sextets and from crooners to percussionists, each of whom is versed in a range of jazz styles. As their musical stylings wash over the Greenwich Village eatery and its sidewalk patio during brunch and late-night dinners, Garage's chefs turn out gourmet dishes. Roquefort cheese-topped filet mignon, sauteed cakes of Maryland crab and Maine lobster, and flame-grilled cornish game hen keep audiences fueled for late-night listening or long, drawn out conversations in which they say nothing but "daddy-o." A raw bar, meanwhile, showcases selections of oysters and clams. Knowing that classic cocktails and jazz go hand-in-hand, Garage's bartenders shake and stir more than 20 eclectic martinis. They can also pour from a collection of more than 80 international wines.

  • Blue Note
    On any given night, a guest at Blue Note might be pulled onstage to sit in on a jazz standard. This would merely qualify as another of the club’s charming eccentricities, were that guest not typically someone like Stevie Wonder, Liza Minnelli, or Quincy Jones. New York’s musical royalty frequents Blue Note to hear original, historical jazz, as well as the innovative genres that the club passionately supports. They look on approvingly as the rising stars of the soul, hip hop, funk, and pantomime scenes blaze sonic trails between the stage’s parted blue curtains. These performers fill the atmosphere with smooth sounds on most nights of the week, and their exquisite talents are matched by a menu of pan-roasted salmon, marinated skirt steak, and grilled baby-back ribs.

  • Birdland
    In December 1949, just as Manhattan was entering the height of its jazz craze, an alto saxophonist by the name of Charlie “Bird” Parker stepped onstage at Birdland for the venue’s inaugural headlining gig. The guests who packed the club that night paid $1.50 each to see the jazz legend perform, and few could have foreseen the heights his reputation would one day reach. More than six decades later, jazz enthusiasts continue to stream into Birdland, trusting the club’s pedigree as a hotspot for up-and-coming artists. Parker may have hung up his sax long ago, but performers such as Oscar Peterson, Hank Jones, and Dave Brubeck carry on his legacy. While the ghost of “Bird” flits through the air, guests order from a menu of American cuisine enlivened with Cajun spices.

  • Harlem Spirituals / New York Visions
    Harlem Spirituals' professional guides maneuver sightseers through a five-hour evening bus tour of Harlem's historical music venues and soul-food restaurants. Explore the sites of the original Cotton Club and Savoy Ballroom, where Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman regularly vibrated air particles with their big-banded boisterousness. The tour route also slides past the grand Apollo Theater and the intimate Minton's Playhouse, where Miles Davis famously abandoned his career of drawing mustaches on portraits of Senator Joe McCarthy to develop bebop. Tours also make a pit stop at neighborhood mainstay Sylvia's Restaurant to sample authentic southern soul food. Nosh on fried chicken and black-eyed peas or muffle the sounds of shrieking trumpets by stuffing ears with collard greens.
