Minton's Playhouse

Bar in Harlem

    Perfect for
  • Date Night
  • Drinking Good Cocktails
  • Special Occasions

Minton’s Playhouse is one of the most famous Jazz bars in Harlem (and all of New York). It originally opened in the late 1930s, and it’s where bebop was first invented. These are good enough reasons to warrant a visit, but in case you need some more, they have a huge, sleek space and shows happen almost every day. Also - this place shares a kitchen with The Cecil, in case you want to eat some steak or clams casino beforehand.
