What a classic NYC experience. By far, best big band you'll find in NYC - but only Friday nights. Really good food and drinks. Only problem - wish there was a dance floor.

We come here every time we visit NYC. Great staff, music, environment. Great for a date night if you enjoy jazz. Private, candle lit tables. Drinks are average, may do best purchasing beer & wine. Food is basic.

Never got passed the door as the cover charge was $50 EACH plus a minimum spend of $10 EACH on drinks - seriously this is ridiculous even for NYC. Very annoying as it came with a very good recommendation

We showed up early on two different nights and they seated us in the front row, so my guess is they use the "first come, first served" system.
