Village Voice's Description
Unofficially called "Home of the Bird," this live jazz and blues mainstay was once the hopping stomping ground of the late Charlie Parker and Roy Hargrove. Though not quite as mighty as it once was, they do respect their longstanding actsathe same Dixieland band has played on Monday nights for the past 35 years. And just like all their other bands, there's never a cover to listen.
Tips from foursquare
Arthur's Tavern is an unassuming dive bar where you can always expect to find a dance party soundtracked by an amazing house band playing crowd-pleasing '70s soul and funk.
fun, eclectic, great jazz band. Halloween, Hannukah,4th of July, Christmas etc. decor everywhere. No rhyme or reason but fun nonetheless!
Make sure to tip Sweet Georgia Brown and her band... otherwise she might end up improvising lyrics about your personal life and get the bar to sing along.
