If you live in or around New York you know jazz music. Bust out that smartphone or use your HughesNet to locate some of our favorite jazz bars in the city and have yourself a smooth, relaxing night out:
Jazz Standard Review: Ah, the old classic. They’re always bringing in big names and there’s nothing more speakeasy feeling than the basement at the Standard. If you want an authentic feel, this is your jam.
Arthur’s Tavern: A bit less high-brow, Arthur’s hosts some sort of jazz every night of the week from classic to Dixieland. There’s no cover charge which is a rarity for NYC and you can get some of the cheapest beer this side of NoHo. Arthur’s is the kind of place that turns the other cheek when you light up a cigar.
Blue Note: You’re going to have to pay if you want a table here but boy does Blue Note have it down. They’re located in the West Village and they attract some of the best talent in the city – if you can score a table here it’s worth the cost.
