Had a great time at Kitano bar called Jazz. If you would like to feel like you are in Japan this is the place. Great jazz, great cocktails, great food bites.

If staying at the hotel do check to see whether your reservation comes with a breakfast coupon -- if not, the sticker price is quite hefty for the breakfast buffet. I would love to come back to this charming space and experience it as a jazz club -- however I just stopped by for a quick breakfast. The interesting highlight... More

Tucked into the Kitano Hotel, the Jazz at Kitano room is a little NYC treasure. Cover is reasonable as is the minimum (currently $20). One of the more intimate settings for a quiet but re-growing cabaret jazz scene all over the city.

Among the MANY wonderful places to experience this art form is "Jazz at Kitano' - Our last visit was in Oct. 2016 to celebrate bassist Martin Wind's 20th Anniversary in New York City. Martin Wind, Jim McNeely, Ingrid Jensen and Matt Wilson. AWESOME evening. And this exceptional... More

The "Brazilian Trio" was excellent. Superb piano, bass and drums. None better in my many experiences here and elsewhere. They happily played a long set to the approval of the audience. A mix of known tunes and their first rate compositions. The venue looks great and is comfortable. (See other reviews about noise and visibility, which didn't impact me.) The... More

Jazz provides a nice range of both American and Japanese fare at breakfast. There are hot containers with eggs, meats, potatoes and pancakes on one side, and you can order the grilled fish of the day and miso soup from the servers. Juice, coffee, and tea is included as well. There are cold cereals and yogurts, a less than stellar... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
