Smoke serves its Jazz Dinner menu 7 nights a week; Monday - Saturday from 5:00pm to 10:30pm, and Sunday from 3:00pm to 10:00pm. The Jazz Dinner menu is available as a discounted Prix-Fixe Sunday-Thursday only.
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 almost 20 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 $15 – $45 (please see event listing for details). Food and beverage minimums apply to all shows. Please see event listing for details as policies may change from show to show.
Do I need to make a reservation or purchase tickets in advance?We highly recommend that you make a reservation or purchase tickets for the set you'd like to see, either by calling Smoke after 5pm at 212-864-6662 or via this website. We do require that parties of 5 or more pre-purchase their tickets. For parties of 8 or more, please email email@example.com to inquire about availability for a specific date and set.
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, then will 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 – Saturday, 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 $42 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.
Is there an age minimum to visit Smoke?We have no age minimum at Smoke. However, please be aware that you will have to reserve or purchase tickets for a table in the dining room (New York State law prohibits minors under the age of 21 from sitting at the bar) and any music charges and food/beverage minimums will apply to all guests.

SMOKE SESSIONS RECORDS CD RELEASE
Eric Reed - "Everybody Gets the Blues"
Everybody Gets the Blues is jazz pianist Eric Reed's strongest statement yet in a lifelong mission to revitalize the gospel roots of jazz. Joined by a thrilling quartet with Tim Green, Mike Gurrola, and McClenty Hunter, Reed finds inspiration and some unexpected connections in the music of Cedar Walton, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard while rediscovering the gospel lifeblood that fuels his jazz passion.
It was the sound of gospel that was at the core of Reed's earliest love of jazz. “When I first started playing jazz as a child, my fascination with the music of Horace Silver, Ramsey Lewis, or Dave Brubeck resonated with what I heard growing up in church, listening to piano players like James Cleveland and Herbert Pickard and Curtis Dublin. I said, ‘Wait a minute, this doesn't sound like the stuff I play in church, but it’s very closely connected. What’s going on here?’”
“For too many years I ignored my own instincts,” the pianist says. “I started out playing different kinds of music with all different kinds of people, but I took a detour. This record is a turning point; it’s finally time to start doing what it is that I want to do.”
Through a range of moods and styles, Eric Reed recognizes that Everybody Gets the Blues, offering a spirited act of communion for those wanting to commiserate and a vigorous set of swing for those who’ve come out the other side.
