Special Club

View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Special Club is an intimate jazz venue in the basement below Niche Niche (from the same owners) in Soho. With its white tablecloths and red velvet decor, it feels festive and old-timey, and it's the perfect place to hang out with someone you’re romantically involved with. There are two seatings every night at 8pm and 10pm, and if you want a table, be sure to book in advance. But if you just want poke your head in and see what’s going on, there’s a little area by the entrance reserved for walk-ins. Just be aware that this place charges a cover and they only serve beer and wine (and a few snacks).
