Relaxing Night with Good Music at Cleopatra's Needle

For Jazz aficionados (or wannabe aficionados), Cleopatra's Needle is a wonderful place to take in both local Jazz musical talents as well as some well-known national musicians.  Whether you're at this NYC Jazz bar for one of the open mic nights or listening to one of their many regular artists, you'll enjoy the sounds emanating from the stage.

Though the food is nothing terribly special, the food and drinks at Cleopatra's Needle are pretty reasonably priced for New York City standards.  This Upper West Side bar and restaurant is an ideal place to go with a group of friends who want to relax and have a couple of drinks, while being entertained by some very talented musicians.

Why We Go:  NYC travelers and locals out for an entertaining night head to Cleopatra's Needle.

  • Great Music: The live Jazz music at Cleopatra's Needle NYC is guaranteed to impress.  Whether you stop by for the Jazz band or stay for the jam sessions and open mic performances, the music at Cleopatra's Needle always entertains.  You may even be lucky enough to see Wynton Marsalis on trumpet (which is not such a rare occurrence).
  • No Cover Charge: In a city where virtually nothing is free, a Jazz club with no cover is a great NYC deal.  Come on in to Cleopatra's Needle and have a memorable NYC night for free!  Though there is a $10 drink minimum during live performances, you'd spend that money on drinks anyhow.
  • Delicious Food: The Mediterranean cuisine at Cleopatra's Needle will delight everyone's taste buds.  We recommend getting a few appetizers and entrees to share with the whole group.  These dishes are so scrumptious that you'll want to try as many as possible.

Inside Knowledge: If you're going to Cleopatra's Needle New York solely for the Jazz music, don't arrive too early.  The nightly Jazz doesn't start until 8pm.
