    Maybe my favorite place in the city? Great, intimate space. Mirrors strategically placed so you can really see how the pianist and drummer play. Performers are incredible and magnetic.

    Listen to the best emerging stars in this quintessential jazz bar. Perfect for a relaxed, wine and music filled evening. The $20 cover charge is less than most places considering the quality of music.

    Great small live jazz club. Friendly staff, cheap beer and well spent 20$ entrance fee which gives you also the right to enter the other Smalls club across the street.

    Homage to original, long closed, black-owned, Small’s Paradise in Harlem. This smalls does justice to that venue by featuring the best jazz musicians around. Go to an afternoon show to avoid crowds.

    As the name suggests, this is a small venue. Get in the line early after buying your ticket online then find a seat up the front. You will feel like you are part of the band.

    Intimate setting for live jazz. We made a reservation in advanced, seems like it’s easier to get tickets at the door for late night shows. Tight space so use the restroom and such before the show!

    Amazing music and atmosphere. Oh and there's a cat hanging around the club too, so that's a big plus! Kudos to the bartender for his awesome cocktails

    We had a great time here. People are cool and welcoming. "The Flail" was playing high quality music ! Well do not be surprised, the smalls is small ;-) you may want to arrive early to have a sit.

    Spend an evening sipping on a drink and listening to fabulous jazz with other music aficionados. The $20 cover is cheaper than other joints and well worth it.

    Some of the best jazz in the village. Get there on time to get a seat. $20 cover but drinks priced reasonably.

    Just walk down the stairs, seat as close as you can to the stage, order a G&T and let yourself go. Pure NYC Jazz vibe on an untoppable location.

    $20 cover is well worth the quality jazz you get. Stay all night if you want. Definitely a cool low key NY establishment.

    This is the real deal. NYC’s jazz scene is happening here, night after night. Come late (2am) if you want to catch the jam session.

    World class jazz in an authentic environment. What else could you ask for? Order a Booker’s and a can beer and get carried away.

    Been years since I've been here, but it was an incredible time. Got to the bar at 1130pm, and listened to a small group do a jam session on a random Thursday night. It was a great experience.

    The cheapest cover charge at any jazz club in the city. Only $20 and good all night - try asking for that at the vanguard or blue note and be prepared to be laughed at.

    Sunday fun-day takes on a new meaning. Go early, stay late. Late night jam session is great if you're looking for local flavor. Provides a community for musicians local and abroad. It's authentic.

    Very small and home place. No matter where you sit, you are always in arms reach to the music. The art that that sell is done by one of the bar tenders

    Tiny, dark, and always packed, Smalls is the city’s quintessential, late-night jazz club, where emerging stars jam until the wee hours. Mon-Sun: 4pm-4am | $20 cover after 7:30pm

    Get there near the tail end of the matinée sessions (4pm-7pm) and the cover's only $10. NEVER a drop in quality, always only the finest jazz musicians.

    Careful with the bartender. We asked for a russian mule And a whole chunk of ginger came in The glass. It should be an accent of ginger not a whole piece of it. Not sure if he/she knew The recipe.
