Jazz and Cocktails with The Brian Newman Quintet
Every Tuesday and Thursday night, the Brian Newman Quintet graces Gramercy Park with a truly authentic old New York jazz set. Located in the Rose Bar of the notoriously lavish Gramercy Park Hotel, this bi-weekly event welcomes you into an experience of great music and extravagance. The environment is very grandiose while still maintaining a friendly and accessible feel, which can be difficult to do with Basquiats and Warhols adorning the walls. Brian Newman (trumpet & vocals), Steve Kortyka (saxophone), Alex Smith (piano), Paul Francis (drums), and Daniel Foose (upright bass) play in front of the beautiful fireplace, providing the very lively and valuable soundtrack to the New York night of a room full of people that always manages to have room for more.
If you’re looking for amazing live jazz and an elegant locale, I strongly encourage checking out the Brian Newman Quintet whenever you have a Tuesday or Thursday night free. The show is from 8-10pm and miraculously, there is no cover charge so spend all your money at the bar and enjoy the music!
