10BEST Says

Jazz & Blues Clubs: Blink and you might miss this subterranean club on a busy stretch of Christopher Street. Tucked between a bi-level cabaret bar and the historic Stonewall Inn, 55 Bar has charmingly tatty tables surrounding a tiny stage with some of the best jazz, funk and blues in Manhattan today. Since 1919, the prohibition-era boite has been serving up stiff drinks and cool tunes to a diverse cast of guitar heroes. Global musicians, students from the nearby NYU and New School campuses, and garrulous if grizzled neighborhood regulars come out to hear six-string strummers like Mike Stern, Hiram Bullock, Jim Campilongo and Adam Rogers.

Late Night / After Hours: If you can handle the run-down atmosphere of this legendary dive, then you'll be treated to some of the best be-bop jazz in New York. Students and young folks love the low-key vibe and the affordable drink prices, but music lovers of all ages show up to hear jazz guitar greats in action.TRAIN: 1, 9 to Christopher St
