Recently having attended a late night hang set, for $10, you really do get to hear some great jazz music from some of the finest musicians. All in an intimate setting.
Each room at Jazz at Lincoln Center is catered specifically to the acoustics of jazz music. The sound here is superb. There's not a bad seat in the house.
Food is topnotch too.
There is an $11 table minimum and a $5 bar minimum.
Note: on Friday/Saturdays, late night hang sets begin after the last artist set. So that may mean a start time of 12:45 am.
