New York, NY 10012
Village Voice's Description
As spontaneous, free, and chaotic as live jazz can be, there's a certain decorum at the Blue Note. To enter, one must reserve a spot in the bruise-blue and mirror-decorated room at either the bar (roughly $20, depending) or a table ($30, same deal). There, you can order up some filet mignon or pan-roasted salmon, and sip wine while chaos enfolds on the bandstand maybe four feet away. It's impressively authentic here: the jazz veterans who sit in each night are less than six degrees of separation from the greats, i.e. Miles Davis or Herbie Hancock, and six feet from your table.
Tips from foursquare
The music here is amazing! The list of great artist who have played the Blue Note is phenomenal. The place itself .. not so much. Somewhat of a cave. But I always enjoy it anyway :)
The crème de la crème in New York Jazz, the Blue Note is more of a shrine to the good old days of jazz. Get tickets to the later show and enjoy a few encore songs!
The Blue Note located is located in the heart of Greenwich Village. It is known to many as a Manhattan legend with many new and old jazz groups performing on a nightly basis.
