We visited NYC and decided to find some local jazz talent and took a cab to Greenwich Village where we found The Bar Next Door. We arrived between sets so sat down to have a couple drinks and pizza and listened to the second set...More

Very small club. You sit 6 to 25 feet away from musicians. Drink and food prices are very reasonable. Food also very good

I liked this place. Good cheeseburguer with a good price. The music is also good, making the place a good choose to lunch.

Great atmosphere. Good jazz bar. We did not eat dinner, but we did try a couple of desserts and the were above average. Definitely would go back and try dinner and hang out in the bar.

We had a nice, entertaining evening with lovely live jazz music. We didn't try any of the food because we are kosher but they had a very large selection of drinks which we enjoyed. The service was top-notch. Cover-charge for music was $12.

Along with a great pecan pie we saw some of the finest jazz musicians around playing a few sets of amazing music.

We arrived early as the club was opening (6pm), warmly greeted by the waiter, given a choice of seating, took one of the high top bistro tables (recommended). Shared a salad, pizza, and bottle of prosecco, all outstanding. At 6:30 the "emerging artist" set starts,...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
