Tips from locals
Another Jazz place, more pricey, date place dinner, you'll have nice time. If something more quiet and intimate is what your up for, this is a good place.
Founded in 1938 by the saxophonist Henry Minton (where this establishment's name comes from), Minton's Playhouse became, decades after, the setting for a revolution in jazz music.
A little more formal, this is a great Harlem experience with soul food and jazz.

It became the Apollo in 1934, when it was opened to black patrons – previously it had been a whites-only venue. In 1983, both the interior and exterior of the building were designated as New York City Landmarks, and the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places. It is estimated that 1.3 million people visit the Apollo every year.”
