In contrast to the listed jazz clubs above, Jazzman is unique in its way. The jazz venue is not spacious as Jamboree Jazz Club or Harlem Jazz Club, and it has two areas for visitors to seat. Established since 1979, Jazzman serves live music in all forms of jazz, especially in blues and soul genre, by both veteran and emerging musicians.
As the space is quite limited, once you are inside, you can feel live jazz so real with high-quality sound. Cozy atmosphere in a tiny jazz club, located in a quiet neighborhood is what you can expect. Great collection of liquors and beverages are available at affordable price. Last but not least, do not miss the beer draught from a saxophone.

If none of the listed venues satisfy your demand, maybe you are looking for a suggestion to fulfill your hunger. Then Bar Ramon is just the right pick for you. It is a small restaurant, which serves tasty foods and tapas.
While tasty foods should be added on, jazz music here could make you back to 1960s, and that you are in NYC. Highly recommended if you are looking for a restaurant with delicious foods, beverage with jazz music style. Do not miss char-grilled octopus, rabbits ribs and excellent tapas sauce here.
