Mintons Playhouse Harlem Jazz Tour with Amanda

What to expect
  • Discover a jazz bar on a hidden Harlem street that has been frequented by some of the biggest names in music
  • Take in two sets of live jazz jams by a world-class band
  • Visit the historic Apollo Theater and other Harlem hot spots
  • Enjoy an evening of entertainment and musical education
Ever want to be that cool cat that knows where all the hidden nightspots are? This tour is your chance. Led by a neighborhood insider that knows everybody and who everybody knows, you’ll hit the floor of one Harlem’s most legendary venues, Minton’s Playhouse. The “birthplace of bebop” was the stomping ground of some of the biggest jazz icons of the mid-20th century. If you’re a jazz vocalist or musician, you might even get to jam alongside the world-class performers of the Sugar Hill Jazz Quartet. In addition to partying at Minton’s Playhouse, you’ll pay homage to some of the great musicians enshrined on the walls of the landmark Apollo Theater. While these two destinations are must-stops, your tour guide might elect to spontaneously divert you to one of the many local dive bars in Harlem if she catches word of an impromptu jam session breaking out that can’t be missed. This is a Harlem experience you won’t get through any travel book!
