Village Vanguard

178 Seventh Ave South
Manhattan, NY 10014
Greenwich Village


 Whether you're talking history, acoustics or big-name performers, the Vanguard has it all. Opened in 1935, the club has maintained its 130-seat-capacity basement—famous for its great sound, often credited to the room's triangular shape. John Coltrane, Bill Evans and Wynton Marsalis all recorded legendary live albums at this music mecca, a must-visit for every jazz fan.
