Smoke is particularly proud of its association with renowned chef Patricia Williams. Patricia's extraordinary culinary career includes stints at Sarabeth's Kitchen, City Wine & Cigar Company, Berkeley Bar & Grill, Butterfield 81, and Morrels. Her passion for cooking with fresh, seasonal ingredients is clear from her menu for Smoke.
Smoke serves its Jazz Dinner menu 7 nights a week from 5:30pm to 10pm. The Jazz Dinner menu is available as a discounted Prix-Fixe Sunday-Thursday only.
Every Sunday from 11am - 4pm Executive Chef Patricia Williams welcomes you to our popular jazz brunch which features soulful Harlem jazz vocalist Annette St. John and her trio. This long running series has become a popular destination for regulars, jazz new comers and families with kids.

Smoke Jazz & Supper Club presents world-class jazz seven nights a week. Candlelit tables, plush velvet banquets, antique chandeliers, and an historic full-length bar create a real jazz vibe. Smoke also serves the perfect complement to classic jazz— soulful American cuisine. The room has seating for just over fifty, which ensures that every listener is close to the action. During Smoke's renovation, the primary focus was on creating an unparalleled room for music...and it shows. The acoustics are some of the best anywhere. Pianist David Hazeltine remarked, “I love playing this room. It’s rare that the piano can be heard as clearly as it is in this club.” Harold Mabern added, “It’s the best jazz club in the world.” In the 15 years since its opening, jazz has continued to thrive at 106th (aka Duke Ellington Boulevard) and Broadway and Smoke is adding a few new chapters of history to a location that has been host to a legendary jazz venue for over 40 years. Smoke was named “Best New Jazz Club” in 2000 by New York Magazine and has won the open table diner's choice awards for several consecutive years.
Is there an entrance fee to see music?Most feature shows are subject to a music charge while most late night shows are not. Music charges range from $9 – $45 (please see event listing for details). All tickets can be purchased on this website and we highly recommend that you do so. Food and Beverage minimums apply to all shows. Please see event listing for details as policies may change from show to show.
Why are some shows listed as dinner shows?The first two shows on most nights are dinner shows which means all tables are reserved for dining guests only. If you are not looking to have dinner during a dinner show you would be seated at the bar.
Do I have to order full dinner at a table or can we just share appetizers?The dinner sets during our featured artist shows (mostly Friday – Sunday, some exceptions apply—see event listing for detail) have a minimum purchase of one entree per person. But feel free to order appetizers and desserts in addition to your main course, and yes, feel free to share those if you like. The minimum purchase on Prix-Fixe nights (mostly Sunday – Thursday, some exceptions apply—see event listing for details) is $38 per person so the 3-Course Jazz Dinner Prix-Fixe is a great way to enjoy the full menu at a discount and cover the minimum purchase at the same time.
Some of your shows list a music charge and a $20 minimum. Can we use the $20 minimum towards food or is this a drink minimum?You may cover your minimum any way you like: food, drinks or a combination of the two, and please remember that our kitchen is open until 11:00pm nightly and 12:00am Fridays and Saturdays.
May we stay for more than one set?Each reservation is for one set only. But if we have room we may be able to make an exception. It never hurts to ask and we certainly appreciate your enthusiasm for the music.

2751 Broadway between 105th and 106th Streets

SMOKE SESSIONS RECORDS CD RELEASE
Renee Rosnes - "Beloved of the Sky"
The worth of a thing is not only to be found in its bottom-line value. That’s the idea at the heart of Canadian artist Emily Carr’s painting “Scorned as Timber, Beloved of the Sky,” which depicts a solitary tree, rejected by loggers who have clear-cut its neighbors, stretching improbably but majestically into the heavens.
It’s a sentiment that resonates deeply with pianist/composer Renee Rosnes. On her new album, Beloved of the Sky – where Carr's painting provides the inspiration for the title track, album title, and cover art – Rosnes explores the beauty and wonder to be found in life’s more elusive, intangible joys.
Beloved of the Sky also celebrates the chemistry and discovery made possible by a band of truly remarkable musicians, each one a master of their instrument: saxophonist Chris Potter, vibraphonist Steve Nelson, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Lenny White. “The beautiful thing about working with such masters,” Rosnes says, “is that when we play new music, they all bring their wealth of experience, taste, skill and imagination to the music. It’s exciting for me as a composer to write something and then see how it blossoms, because inevitably it’s going to sound a little different than what I imagined – in a great way.”
Beloved of the Sky is available as a double gatefold vinyl LP, a deluxe 8-panel CD album and as a digital download (including Mastered for iTunes) in 96kHz/24bit high resolution. In addition to Emily Carr's artwork and writing extract, the album also features original photography by Jimmy and Dena Katz and liner notes by David Hajdu.
