    lenox lounge on west 125th. sylvia's restaurant is just a couple blocks away, so you can make a night of it. the village vanguard is good too, if you don't want to make the trek uptown.

      Lenox Lounge is a great suggestion- very laid back, inexpensive (no cover charge) but be warned they only have live music a few nights a week. The inside actually has landmarked status, The Vanguard is one of the greatest places in the world to hear jazz- but it's not cheap. Fairly pricey cover charge. And it is a shrine to jazz- so no conversation is allowed when the music starts..

        Jazz Standard has great shows and a fantastic beer list. Definitely not old school or cheap though.
