A Joint to Drop Into

Let there be Jazz. Down at 55 Christopher Street is the logically named 55 Bar, which they call “a Prohibition era dive bar with incredible live Jazz, Funk & Blues nightly in Greenwich Village.”

55 Bar

What's different about the 55 Bar from other nice places to go hear jazz is that it's cozy and not super expensive but still in a mainstream location. Also, the music is top notch. Major players play there yet the cover is $10 and drinks are reasonable. Only drawback is I went with a friend this Friday and it was so packed to capacity that we couldn't get in. (We settled for drinks at a nice casual place next door.) I have to say, this is good news for jazz fans, though. To all those who say that jazz has no followers, there were plenty out on Friday. The Dave Liebman Band was playing and I look forward to hearing them soon when I can get in; they play here frequently.
