Profile

The surfeit of jazz dives that once lined 52nd Street is long gone—as are many of the musical icons who played there—but this sub-level Times Square venue does its best to recreate the halcyon days of the twenties and thirties. Sure, the air’s no longer smoky, the décor’s a shadow of what it was, and you’re sitting knee to knee with the European tourists at the next table, but true jazz aficionados overlook those minor details to hear sets played by some of the best-known names in the biz: guitarist Mike Stern, Jeff Beck and Steve Miller (who's also Les Paul's god son), to name a few. Monday-night headliner Les Paul (the 92-year old strummer so good he’s got a Gibson guitar named after him) sells out nearly every show he plays—so reserve your seats early and note the strict 24-hour cancellation policy. Sight lines are excellent; acoustics are top notch; most sets last little more than an hour.
