Relive the high-stepping, fun-loving nights of the 1920’s! Tour Harlem with a professional guide and learn about the neighborhood's role in the history of jazz.
See the site of the original Cotton Club, where Duke Ellington and Lena Horne spent hours wowing crowds from around the world. Drive past the site of the Savoy Ballroom where Benny Goodman and Chick Webb fought it out during their “Battle of the Bands,” and where the “Charleston,” “Lindy Hop” and the “Big Apple” dances were firmly cemented into American culture.
See the world-famous Apollo Theater, where Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald won the popular “Amateur Night,” which still boasts standing room only audiences every Wednesday night. Pass by Lincoln Theater, where Fats Waller's passion underscored Vaudeville shows, and Minton’s Playhouse, where bebop was born, and where Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk started the tradition of jam sessions. Discover Harlem’s hottest bebop spot, where jam sessions and musical intrigue go on into the wee hours of the morning. Enjoy the easy-going, convivial atmosphere as you mingle freely with the locals and experience the shared essence of Harlem. (We pick up the tab for your first two cocktails!) On the way to the music, you’ll dine at Sylvia’s legendary restaurant, famous for its soul-shattering soul food. So forget the A Train and join us for a great night out in Harlem.
