In Harlem they know how to craft good jazz. One of the first appeared jazz venues, Showmans Jazz Club maybe is not the motherland, but certainly an important platform, where jazz music is always in blossom.

It exists since 1942, being a neighbor to the Apollo Theater, then moved to 8th Avenue and continued to share brilliant jazz discoveries with all connoisseurs and its lovers. If this place was a man (or a woman), he (or she) would be certainly extremely proud till the end of his (or her) days of having acquaintances with all those awesome people ever created such sounds. Lionel Hampton, Sarah Vaughan, Duke Ellington, Jimmy Rogers, Lou Volpe, Jazmyn, Madame Pat Tandy, Pearl Bailey, Baba Don, Ray Schinnery, Eartha Kitt, Jimmy The Preacher Robins, Lou Dobbs, Gloria Lynne, Ruth Brownб and many other jazz stars started their career here, developed their musical story of were residents.

During all this time the Showmans Jazz Club carefully maintains the concept of being a true jazz club and features naturally amazing performances, just the way a jazz music is.

There is no cover charge, but there is a two-drink minimum per person.
