New York, NY 10014

This basement bar and music club is wholeheartedly devoted to showcasing the best jazz and blues in the city. It's a charming Prohibition-era dive bar hosting two live shows a night, seven days a week. The early show doesn't have a cover charge, but the late show will cost you $10 -- which is modest in comparison to other jazz bars in the city.
