Jazz Clubs in Hoboken

Despite its name, Jazz Standard isn’t exactly a standard jazz club. For starters, it’s quite spacious—sizable, well-spaced tables seat up to 100 people in a colorful space that New York Magazine called “a world away from the low-ceilinged, cramped clubs of the West Village.” There is a cover but no drink minimum, though patrons are welcome to order from a drink list with specialty cocktails such as Coltrane’s Resolution, a harmonious blend of sparkling wine, Lillet, and blood-orange juice that takes at least nine minutes to finally finish. The spirits pair with a menu of barbecue from Blue Smoke, the sister restaurant upstairs, which crafts a saucy selection of chipotle chicken wings, Kansas City–style spareribs, and housemade potato chips that were featured on Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate. Of course, the main draw is the music, which gets an added oomph from the club’s state-of-the-art sound system. With two sets every night and a third late set on Fridays and Saturdays, Jazz Standard is able to feature a large spread of both local up-and-comers and internationally renowned musicians. Charles Mingus legacy bands take the stage every Monday, and the rest of the calendar divides its time between rising stars such as Zach Brock and perennial favorites including Geri Allen. In the past, the stage has even borne heavyweights such as Fred Hersch and Academy Award and Grammy Award winner André Previn.

55 Bar is even older than its name might suggest. The venue’s true history dates back to the early 1920s, when New Yorkers—desperate for a drink at the dawn of Prohibition—crowded into speakeasies to toss back illegal spirits. As one of these speakeasies, 55 Bar differentiated itself by pairing its drinks with soulful jazz. Though Prohibition has long since passed, the charming dive continues to host live jazz, funk, and blues every night of the week. A jukebox fills the rare silences when musicians are busy setting up or brewing moonshine in their tubas.
