Hello everyone. I am visiting the beautiful city of New York in t minus 3 days!

Thank you! We are staying in Times Square, but honestly if it’s a decent place and accessible then I don’t mind travelling.

Georgina, if you are stopping in Times Square, try The Rum House.

Iridium and Birdland are near Times Square and Dizzy's Coca Cola is not far.. People usually pick a club based on who's playing when they want to go.😉

Good advice as to jazz clubs given above. Hot House Jazz guide lists who's playing where based on date

https://www.hothousejazz.com/index.php

It's pretty overwhelming though. One piece of advice, every club I've been in has an open seating policy, the first in line gets the best seats and if you don't like the seat they take you to just ask for another. In other word:

1. If possible, buy the ticket in advance (advance ticket holders get seated first)

2. Get there when the doors open

3. Later shows (e.g., 11:00) are not as full as early (8:00) shows. Some clubs have shoes before 6:00 PM (e.g, Birdland) and they are not too full either
