If you're looking for a place for amazing live music in New York, specifically jazz music, look no further than the "prohibition era dive bar" in Greenwich Village, the 55 Bar .
Featuring an unpretentious cozy atmosphere and live jazz music from both beginners and seasoned veterans, this place also boasts extremely reasonably priced, yet sniff, drinks.
All ages are welcomed here and the early set each night usually has no cover. Even when there is a cover, for the later set, it is typically not that expensive. The crowd here varies just about each night as well, from exuberant locals ready to chat it up and get wild at the bar to jazz enthusiasts who are content sitting quietly and listening intently to the music being played.
There's no food served here but visitors are always welcome to bring their own. A trip to the 55 bar offers a great experience for any visitor to the city and some of the best live music in New York
