Straight out of Central Casting, this intimate Upper West Side club has tiny tables, candlelit banquettes, and a moody atmosphere. Reservations are 100% necessary, as big-name performers belie the small space; the likes of pianist Bill Charlap and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis. All performers have the star power that lights up the stage. The kitchen is helmed by executive chef Patricia Williams and gives this jazz joint a leg up on the competition. With house favorites like buttermilk-battered fried chicken, grilled Brussels sprouts with piquillo pepper sauce, and dark-and-stormy-soaked short ribs, hungry patrons will have no problem meeting the food/drink minimum, which varies by performance but can reach $20/person.

- Jazz & Blues Clubs: "Lights may be low, but don't miss the funky wall art, a remnant of the venue's previous identity, Augie's Jazz Bar."
- Best for Jazz & Blues Clubs Because: A stellar kitchen makes this home for the moody jazz and blues all the more inviting.
