Intimate atmosphere and very good band when we were there. Prices For a beer and a wine I paid 22 dollars, but food can be taken with you and eaten in the club. And one more time the pet went around for the musicians. A wonderful conclusion to our visit to New York! I will definitely come back here when I'm in New York again.
Awesome atmosphere, great music and lots of rich history. A truly spectacular experience. If you're ever in Manhattan, make the trip, it's well worth it.
I had to write after reading some google reviews. My experience was the most amazing!! Got there early on a Monday night and was able to meet Sam, the owner of Paris Blues for 50 years. I looked at all his pictures and accolades on the wall. He spoke to us and explained some history, made us feel very welcome. There is no cover and they fed us a wonderful home cooked meal - also free. Wow!! Very cozy bar, the type I love. The drinks were in line with New York City prices people, not overly expensive as some stated, not at all. The band were all virtuoso performers in their own right. The energy was crazy! I would highly recommend this experience and opportunity. This place will not be around forever, you will be lucky to be part of this historical place.
