Village Vanguard

In the jazz world, Mecca is located to the West. The West Village specifically. The Village Vanguard is to jazz what Yankee Stadium is to baseball, Coney Island is to beaches, Saint Patrick is to cathedrals. It's the top. High honors for a club situated one narrow flight downstairs, in a basement below a pizza parlor, but undisputed nonetheless. Lovers of the music come from all over the world just to hear a set in the room that has become synonymous with jazz. The club's red canopied entrance at 178 Seventh Avenue South, located between the intersections of West 11th Street and Greenwich Avenue to the north and Perry Street and Waverly Place to the south is a true New York City landmark, as noted by the blue street sign memorializing the block's angular tip as Max Gordon Corner.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
