Legendary jazz venue widely held to be the birthplace of modern jazz - Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk among others used to meet and jam here after work. Intimate and friendly, and you never quite know what you're going to see. They usually do 3 sets in an evening and the later set tends to become a bit of an "open mike" affair, so be prepared for a few surprises! Also be aware that although you get a warm welcome inside, Harlem is not a good place to get lost in late at night.
