The Kitano

Greetings from the fatter, more slothly side of Christmas!

I want to talk about one of my favorite spots for jazz in NYC. I discovered The Kitano a couple years ago when I went to see Peter Eldridge of New York Voices do a fabulous set in this sleek hotel setting.

As our listing for The Kitano rightly states, “For simplicity and class, you can’t beat The Kitano…” The cover charge and the food/drink minimum can be a bit steep if you’re on a budget, but this is one of the coolest spots to get right up into the music with some great performers.

Since ’tis the season, check out their New Year’s Eve show with spectacular vibraphonist Joe Locke or their upcoming schedule here.
