Place to go for a live-music / jazz/ blues?
Hi All, we'll be in NYC this weekend (Sat - Mon) staying at mid-down.
Any recommendations for a place that has live-music & jazz at the restaurant?
Perhaps even a little dancefloor on the side so that when the right music comes on, we can hop up?
We're not into the 'clubbing' / meat market type. : )
Here's another vote for Jazz Standard. If you don't see what you like on their menu, they will be glad to bring you the menu from Blue Smoke!
Altho both places are known for their barbecue, I almost always get the scallops. They are SO good!
Birdland also has great music and very good food.
Another option is Roth's Steakhouse on Columbus at 93rd. They have late nite jazz Fri. and Sat. Great food and not just steaks.
Hi All! Just like to report that we ended up going to Dizzy Gillespie's (spelling?) Jazz Club on Columbus Circle in the Time Warner building. EXCELLENT Jazz!! Great performers!
Expensive cover-charge & food & drinks. No loud talking. No dancing. But it was nice & romantic - especially with the view over CP.
Next time though, we would like to find a place where we can perhaps chat more & enjoy a slow dance.
