Enjoy an al fresco jazz concert at the New York Botanical Garden tonight.

Jazz and drinks go together like, well, like jazz and drinks, and you get the best of both at Analogue.

A jazzy slice of Moscow awaits at the Manhattan mouth of the Williamsburg bridge: Moscow 57 is an bohemian go-to for live music, strong drink and caviar indulgence.

Back in the 1930s, Minton’s was a well-known NYC jazz club, opening in Harlem in 1938 and flourishing through the 1960s, until it eventually shuttered its doors.

Earlier this week, I visited West Village jazz venue/eatery Garage Restaurant for lunch and to chat with owner Sal Perillo.

At The Plaza Hotel, The Rose Club offers a cozy atmosphere to enjoy snacks, beverages and live jazz.

Tucked away below street-level in Greenwich Village, Zinc Bar offers a candlelit spot to consume cocktails and enjoy nightly performances by a variety of jazz musicians. The low-ceilinged bar also plays jazz tunes throughout the night, but if you head to the back of the space, you can see a live show as well.

This past Friday, I was invited to attend a dinner and show at 54 Below—a new cabaret/restaurant in Midtown. Have you ever seen the movie Midnight in Paris? In the Woody Allen film, a 21st-century, disenchanted writer takes long walks around Paris at midnight and is instantly transported into the 1920s—the City of Light’s romantic golden age.

Whiskey and jazz. A pristine pairing of supremely complimentary pleasures. The two go together like milk and honey, yin and yang, Ella and Louie. Hand me a scotch on the rocks, if you will, and let the lady croon: Heaven...I'm in heaven. It's Thursday night and I step out of the office with this dynamite duo on my mind.

When I lived in the Bronx, I would often venture south to the Upper West Side for dinner. I think this might be my favorite neighborhood in Manhattan. I love the architecture and the laid-back attitude of most of the residents. Plus, there are so many restaurants, music venues and retail shops.
