All that Jazz at the Kitano Hotel, New York

27 05 2012

If you enjoy jazz, the Kitano Hotel on Park Ave. has just introduced its JAZZ at KITANO series, with a constantly changing schedule of acts from well known performers to lesser known rising stars.

We recently checked out Barbara Carroll, formerly of the Oak Room who performed a tight, set of standards—fingers flying over keyboard and her sexy, low voice belying her years (probably in her 80s). But just fabulous. There is usually a gay presence:  On our most recent visit, out of about 20 couples 3 were gay male couples and 1 was a lesbian couple.

It’s on the lobby level of the hotel so just enter and proceed directly to the back. Alternatively, there is also a separate main entrance on 38th St. closer to Park Ave.

Enjoy  small plates or a full meal of contemporary American cuisine with Pan Asian influences and a full bar.

Jazz performances take place every Monday through Saturday as follows:

  • Monday:  Open Jam Session from 8:00p.m. to 11:30p.m.
