Smoke Jazz Club in New York announces reopening and expansion

The Smoke Jazz Club, one of New York’s premier live music venues, has announced its long-awaited reopening.

Located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side at the junction of Broadway and 106th Street (aka Duke Ellington Boulevard), the club features classic and modern jazz performances. Established in 1999, the club is internationally recognized with top-notch programming and rising stars. He survived economic crises, building fires, etc., but the pandemic proved to be much more difficult.

Over the last couple of years the club have had to change the way they do things to make sure it’s done safely. These include modified operations such as live streams, sidewalk concerts and outdoor dining. Although indoor performances were closed, Smoke survived with a newly expanded space.

Smoke Jazz Club has so much history. Despite the struggles of the past few years, we just knew the music couldn’t stop there. The last two years have not been easy for anyone, but having live music in the club again with everyone together, musicians and listeners, seems like a turning point. We are very happy to take this next step.

The club will add smaller combined spaces to operate safely, serving as an adjoining lounge with the relocated full-length historic bar providing more space for the public and a larger stage for performers in the main listening room .
