The historic Lenox Lounge has been in the Harlem community since 1939, serving as the back drop for many jazz legends such as Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane.

There is a bar area you can go to for no charge, the Zebra Room has a cover charge that ranges from $10 to $20 depending on the day and the live act. They have a small kitchen that offers soul food, but the real delicacy is the first rate jazz the serve up each nite. One of my favorite places in NYC.
