    This is a great little museum - little being the operative word. It's basically all housed in one room but what there is, is nicely laid out, easy to read and for a donation of $10 was a nice way to spend an hour or so.

    Gordon took us to memorable locations, with a history lesson and bios of virtually every musician we saw. He was well known by all and very organized. A “must do” tour that we will do again! Tip: if given the chance, do the soul food. Patrick’s Ox Tail and Jerk Chicken was amazing

    Really enjoyed Terra Blues. The music was great with Junior Mack. The services was excellent. The place is just right for listing to the Blues. If your a blues fan it’s definitely where a visit

    Five acts, and all were great quality comics! Lots of hilarity! The emcee was great too! We were one table away from the stage so had a perfect view, but I don't think there's a bad seat in the house. We will definitely go back when we're in NYC again.

    Brilliant. Staff were super friendly and clearly lived and breathed jazz. Venue is superb - reminiscent of Ronnie Scott's in London but nicely spaced tables, intimate but with enough space to be comfortable. A lovely collection of merchandise as well if, like us, this is a bit of a pilgrimage. We were there to see John Pizzarelli who is absolutely top notch, and wonderfully entertaining as well as being a top musician - we felt privileged to be there. John and the staff were really kind in accommodating our teenage Jazz fanatic kids in their requests for photos and autographs. The food was great, too!

    Very cheap drinks. You can buy rounds here for your friends and not worry about blowing a ton of cash. I bought a pitcher and a round of shots for me and three friends for under fifty bucks. That is quite the feat in midtown Manhattan. I used to come here a lot a few years back. My first visit here since "you know what". And it was good to see that this place was still alive and kicking! One of the last great dive bars in NYC. Cheap drinks, loud music, and fun times. Pretty much perfect place to hang out on a hot summer night! And they still have free hot dogs! I love this place!

    Very old and historic pub. Its worth a visit just to see all the pictures and read the articles on the wall. Very friendly staff and patrons. All appear to be having a great time. Two kinds of beer, light and dark. Both are outstanding. Enjoyed our drinks and was a great place to visit with friends.

    The club is quite small and the reservation is strongly recommended if you want to be sure to have a seat for the concert. You must take a drink. The music was fantastic. strongly recommended if you want to try an authentic jazz night.

    This was definitely a highlight of our NYC getaway. Gorgeous lounge and views, top notch jazz talent and great food and wine. Tip: arrive early to get your choice of tables, even if you have purchased tickets in advance.

    A must for any jazz fan it is a temple for that kind of music. By the way I went with my spouse and daughters, no teens, but that option was not available, so I checked family with teens because we are more than friends

    This place is so cool! I have always wanted to visit it. Prices are crazy but if you want to enjoy the Village, you cannot go to the Cafe Wha. My experience has been awesome, except for the price of 3 beers: 40💰!

    This Restaurant has permanently closed as of July 2020, due to Covid-19 situation in NYC. Cannot survive without Theater & Tourist trade. We have been loyal customers for over 20 years. Hate to say goodbye.

    The Shanghai margarita cocktail was great, but the cigar odor was absolutely overpowering. There was only one man smoking on the other side of the room (and it’s a pretty large area with high ceilings) and we could hardly breathe. Granted this is a cigar club, but we were only able to stay for one drink because it was so strong.

    This was fun! Didn’t expect it to be this fun. You get to meet a lot of people too. Great experience if you’re visiting
