Q: Can I take photographs at the show?

A: Non-flash photography, video and audio is permitted within reason and as long as it doesn’t intrude on the experience of other patrons and the artists’ performances. If you have a special request, e.g., for extended video recording or a photo shoot with artists, please contact ellen@jazzforumarts.org

Q: Is there merchandise available?

A: We sell artists’ CDs, T-shirts, hats, coffee mugs, percussion egg shakers and other merchandise at the box office window.

Q: Is there an age restriction?

A: All ages are welcome at the tables. Bar seating is for 21+.

Q: Can I stay for two sets on Friday, Saturday and Sunday?

A:  Those attending the first set may stay for the second set by paying the additional ticket price and an additional $10 minimum per person, if seats are available. At the discretion of management and following the first set, management may announce that those who have paid for the first show can stay for the second show, without paying an additional ticket fee.  Patrons from the first set must pay the new minimum per person for the second set.

In either case, if you stay for the second set, you will be asked to close your check, go into the lounge and wait with other patrons while staff reset the tables.  All full-paying patrons for the second show get first choice on seats, and you may be asked to change seats to accommodate them. 


Q: What are the ticket prices?

A: The General Admission ticket price for Friday and Saturday performances is typically $25 per person per set, plus service charge and ticket processing fee.  Sunday shows are typically priced at $15 per person per set, plus service charge and ticket processing fee. Ticket prices may be higher for certain artists and special events. We request that customers purchase tickets in advance on our Calendar page.  Tickets can also be purchased at the box office when we open on the weekends, depending on availability.

Q: Is there a group size that requires advance ticket purchases?

A: Any group of five or more people must purchase tickets in advance and as a single party.  If different groups are purchasing tickets and intend to sit together, please notify the club in advance by calling 914-631-1000 or contacting ellen@jazzforumarts.org.  We may not be able to seat large groups of five or more people together if tickets are not purchased according to this policy.

Q: Is there a group discount for tickets?

A: Please contact ellen@jazzforumarts.org for any special discount requests.
