The great music, the serene and calming atmosphere, and not to mention the drinks and food that just caps it all off all make for great reasons why Jazz Clubs are the best.

In this video, we’ll be looking at 5 Jazz clubs in New York City that don’t disappoint.

1. Minton’s Playhouse

First on this list is one of the most famous in Harlem. They’re as iconic as possible, with almost a century’s experience in the area.

Bebop, an iconic jazz style developed in the early 1940s, is also said to have originated from this institution. Date night dining, cocktails, and special occasions are all welcome here.

2. Ginny’s Supper Club

Right under the amazing soul food restaurant Red Rooster is a hidden Jazz Club for enthusiasts. Located in their basement, Ginny’s Supper Club plays several times a week with guaranteed late-night lounge hours on Fridays and Saturdays.

With a combination of dining services and cocktails, you can enjoy the experience in this jazzy basement.

3. Special Club

Living up to its name, Special Club is definitely special. It’s an intimate jazz club donning white tablecloths and red velvet walls to give you a feel of the classic 50s jazz experience.

Two seatings are scheduled at 8 pm and 10 pm every night, but we highly suggest you call a few days before to make sure you can book a spot with your date.

4. Shrine

The shrine is exciting. Not only do they have great music, but they also take pride in their amazing food. From steaks to mussels and even shepherd’s pie, both your heart and ears will be satisfied to the brim.

Their purple place is one of the places where new artists come to be discovered, so the energy is always fresh and exciting.

5. Smoke Jazz & Supper Club

Last but definitely not least on this list is Smoke Jazz & Supper Club. Contrary to Shrine, where they give new artists opportunities to shine, Smoke brings the Smoke with a number of noteworthy musicians from all over the world playing on their stage.
