Time Out NY Please note: this business is now closed; keeps record of many old and closed venues. Sorry, Virginia, there is no Santa Claus at Harlem's half-century-old jazz haunt, where Miles Davis tippled and tooted and Billie Holiday first belted tunes. Descend into this low-ceilinged, underground lair (illuminated by Christmas lights and bare bulbs), grab a stiff drink at the rickety bar and plant your roots. Chatty jazz aficionados sip brews and watch lively musicians wail onstage; a pic of sax saint Charlie Parker hangs in reverence.
