Zinc Bar is a Greenwich Village Jazz club in the former space of the legendary 1940s Jazz venue Club Cinderella. Billie Holiday used to sing to the accompaniment of the house pianist Thelonious Monk.
Zinc Bar still has that old school Jazz vibe, which is unique among the commercialized Jazz clubs in the City today.
One of the owners’ family is from Argentina. Zinc Bar hosts Sunday Tango nights.
Zinc Bar is the Jazz Underground
It used to be that you would hear Jazz melodies floating up out of basements all over Greenwich Village. Not any more, but Zinc Bar is a remnant of what New York City used to be.
The bar is owned by an Argentine family. Maybe that is why it has an international sound. You will hear straight ahead Jazz, Bossa Nova, Cumbia, Flamenco, Rumba, Tango, and just about everything.
Sunday nights are Tango nights. You can go and listen, or watch, and you can dance too.
