The Whole Jazz Experience
Become immersed in Jazz history, culture and music at Minton’s. The famous Minton’s Playhouse closed in 1974, but reopened in 2006 and began a new era of music and legends.
Live jazz will thrill you with every seating, and there are even late night jam sessions. You will be expected to dress sharp, which will only complement the elegant decor and classy drinks. You can sit at the bar, or in the dining room, but you will be able to enjoy the music from both places. The food at Minton’s is from a revived cuisine called “Southern Revival Cooking.”
Minton’s is now registered on the New York State register as an Historic Place. If you would like to visit, but want more than just a meal or drink, make it an experience to remember. Have a private piano or vocal lesson at Minton’s and let the music make the memory.
History’s Little Gem
Nestled among the financial district’s tall, imposing skyscrapers lies an historical gem of New York. Fraunces Tavern is where George Washington finished his campaign of the Revolutionary War and bid farewell to his soldiers.
The tavern is more than just a bar, it is a restaurant, monument, museum and brewery as well. The tavern itself has stood since 1719, and the block was opened to the public as a restaurant and museum in 1907. There are five historic buildings and over 5000 artifacts.
If you are feeling like taking in some history and knowledge, having a delightful meal and enjoying a new adventure, Fraunces Tavern seems to have all these things in abundance.
