Intricately designed carpeting, brilliant lighting, and chairs sporting cut-out eighth notes decorate the sumptuous interior of the B.B. King Blues Club & Grill. In the main showcase room, guests lounge around booths and tables and enjoy up-close views of the 30-foot stage, around which the audience wraps in the shape of a horse slipper. Once past the theater’s marquee, sound addicts can listen to The Rhythm Devils transcend rock ‘n’ roll stereotypes with a smorgasbord of musical masters culled from bands such as The Grateful Dead and Gov’t Mule, unscrew their ears to hear the bluesy tunes of Native American band Indigenous, and more.
A 40-foot bar and a full menu of American Continental fare with Southern flair fills showgoers, who can eat during the show or opt for a dining excursion at Lucille’s Bar and Grill—named after B.B. King’s guitar. Seating is first-come, first-served, so show up early—doors open at 6 p.m. for most shows.
- When pop music's dinosaurs stomped through New York in years past, they had no choice but to head for a high-art theater, a beat-up club, or an overpacked bar downtown. Now classic rockers like Peter Frampton and Blue Öyster Cult and R&B legends like Chic and James Brown play the B.B. King Blues Club & Grill, an intimate but spacious Times Square supper club that ranges well beyond its titular subject matter. – New York magazine
- They really know how to get a band to shine at this place - good job production! – JayLove1115, Citysearch
