Smalls: A new era for a great jazz spot in NYC

It has come to our attention that the management of the great jazz club Smalls, located in Greenwich Village, has changed... for good!
Musicians Spike Wilner and Lee Kostrinsky have partnered with Mitch Borden (the club's original manager) with the goal of restoring Smalls back to its original freewheeling and bohemian vibe. The club has been beautifully renovated and a full bar is now in service. The comfort and feeling of the club is amenable to after-hours hangs and the music again goes all night. Music begins at 7:00 with happy hour piano. Main shows are at 8:30 and 10:30 PM. The after-hours band plays at 12:00 AM and 1:30 AM.

They have a really nice new website

We will all be hanging out there frequently, so hope to meet you at Smalls.
