Jazz in Midtown

This bird's got a slick look, not to mention the legend – its name dates from bebop legend Charlie Parker (aka ‘Bird’), who headlined at the previous location on 52nd St, along with Miles, Monk and just about everyone else (you can see their photos on the walls). Covers run from $25 to $50 and the lineup is always stellar.

Regular highlights include David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Centennial Band on Wednesdays and the Arturo O'Farrill Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra on Sundays. Dress to impress.
