Great spot with wonderful jazz music! It lost a star only because the food isn't that great - but in the end you should go for the music and a drink, and it's absolutely wonderful!Recommended for:

One of my absolute favorite venues. This is a very intimate setting, great experience for any jazz artist. Here is the deal, you buy a ticket to a show but it is General admission seating. Get to the venue by 8pm for the late show (1030p) and you'll stand in line to get on to the list for seats, best seats are first come first serve. Honestly though any seat in here is a great seat. If you don't have tickets you stand in a separate line and depending on how popular the show is, you can purchase a ticket for standing room only at the bar which is in the back of the club with limited views. If you like Belgium abbey ales, check out the brother thelonious-dark rich and strong-you won't regret it :)Recommended for:

Went on an office outing to hear Odean Pope's Sax Choir. We got the best seats in the house, and the music was interesting and good. What would have made it better: The food: It's pricey and pretty meh. The staff: Didn't seem to care too much. When we went to check in with the host and said that we were meeting someone already there, he said "Yeah, he's here, but we don't keep track of where we seat people, you'll just have to find him." Our waitress was more concerned by the fact that we had three people seated at a table for five (two people were running late) than by anything else, until the organizer said he'd just pay for the empty seats, if it came to that. During "last call" which took place during the performance (i.e., we couldn't hear her very well) she asked us if we wanted anything else. One person said he wanted water - she said "I'm only concerned with things that could go on the bill." She did eventually bring the water, but the overt concern about everything having to do with money left a really bad impression.
But hey, it is a NY jazz institution, so I won't say don't go, just don't for the great food or service.Recommended for:

A New York institution, the sort of place that everyone should visit at least once. They have performances almost every single night, although the runs can be a little long so if you're not into the performer, you might have to wait a while for someone else. Right near Washington Square Park and million other things to do, there are plenty of places to eat and have a drink before or after.
