- There's a bar, you have to wait for the waitress or they'll yell at you. No food.
"No complaining if you're late...We do not serve food...no price reduction for minors...QUIET IS ENFORCED. We're a jazz club, not a chat room. NO PHOTOGRAPHY...NO VIDEOTAPING...NO AUDIO RECORDING...Period. And please, NO CELL PHONES."
It's no wonder the New Yorker calls this place the city's "most prestigious jazz club." Despite the (mostly justified) attitude, this no-nonsense Greenwich Village basement undeniably showcases the world's absolute best jazz on a consistent basis. If you're looking for a serious listening experience, impeccable sound, and guaranteed high-quality programming, treat yourself to an evening at this historical treasure - just be prepared to pay for it.
