  • The Jazz Standard is the first jazz club I have been to. My girlfriend took me here for my birthday in 2018 and I was blown away. I knew I would be back. We told some friends about it and they displayed interest. Nearly a year after the first visit we came back and our date the first time around became a double date this time. We saw the Jimmy Greene quintet and they were awesome. I bought one of his CDs after the show. For food we got 4 BBQ platters and 4 sides. The baby back ribs were super tender, glad we got two of that order. My girlfriend loved the brisket. Their biscuits were our favorite side but that isn't to knock the Mac and cheese or creamed spinach. The price, the quality of food, and the music earn the Jazz Standard 5 stars in my book.
  • The Jazz Standard is a staple jazz venue in NYC. Every aspect of our visit was professionally handled. Parking is free on the street after 6pm on weekdays. The Blue Smoke restaurant upstairs provides the food (authentic barbecue) which is excellent. Fine selection of local draft beers available. Seating is comfortable, not overcrowded Music was phenomenal Highly recommend the Jazz standard.
