Time Out says

After more than 80 years, this basement club’s stage still hosts the crème de la crème of mainstream jazz talent. Plenty of history has been made here—John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Bill Evans have grooved in this hallowed hall—and the 16-piece Vanguard Jazz Orchestra has been the Monday-night regular since 1966. Thanks to the venue's strict no cell phone policy, seeing a show here feels like stepping back and time. It's just you and the music.

Since 1970 I have been visiting Village Vanguard on a regular basis. No visit of mine to USA is complete without a few nights at the club. The seating may not be the best, the service maybe a bit slow, the owners might seem reserved but the music never disappoints you. As I walk down the steps into the club I feel I am entering the history of modern jazz. There is NO jazz musician worth his/her weight who has not performed there, nor anyone who doesn't want to.

Attending a jazz concert is a must in New York. When you arrive at Village Vanguard, you have to go down to discover the concert hall. It's quite small, but as we imagine with the stage and some small round tables. Just order a drink and enjoy the music, you feels like to be in La la land movie. The only thing that is not good is the service. The waiter is not friendly and the manager does not respect the student discount' advertised on their website...
