PRESS QUOTE
“Mintons' Playhouse, one of the holiest jazz landmarks in New York, re-opened in May, for the first time since 1974, but the music became noteworthy only a few weeks ago, when the club started booking better known players for Fridays & Saturdays. The Saxophonist Charles Davis was there over the Weekend, playing in a way that few musicians do anymore; he represents something as genuine, and worth celebrating as the club itself..." --Ben Ratliff, The New York Times

There will be a $20 Cover Charge, and a two drink minimum.

Reservations are recommended! Please call the Club at (212) 876-8838
