Jazz in Upper West Side & Central Park

This swank but laid-back lounge – with good stage views from plush sofas – brings out old-timers and local faves, such as George Coleman and Wynton Marsalis. Most nights there’s a $10 cover (but it can go as high as $45), plus a $38 per person minimum spend on food and drink. On Sundays there's a soulful jazz brunch from 11am to 4pm. Purchase tickets online for weekend shows.

Late nights, you can stop by for free shows (no cover but $20 minimum applies) that kick off around 11:30pm.
