Harlem Gospel - Soul Food and Jazz
Adult: $155 Child: $155
This tour only runs on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays!

Come and relive the high-stepping, fun-loving nights of the 1920s! Join us for a great night out in Immortal Harlem. Tour the neighborhood with one of our professional city guides, and learn about Harlem's role in the history of jazz and the roles of its noted jazz musicians in giving New York its musical edge.



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." Pass by Minton's Playhouse, where bebop was born and where Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk started the tradition of jam sessions.



Discover one of Harlem's hottest clubs, where jam sessions and musical intrigue go on into the wee hours of the morning.



Dinner* is at Sylvia's legendary restaurant - "The Queen of Soul Food" (Family style dinner)

On Mondays, swing dance the night away to the beat of a terrific, twelve-piece band. Free dance lesson included! We pick up the tab for your first two cocktails!



Thursdays and Saturdays, experience the essence of Harlem and enjoy the convivial atmosphere as you mingle freely with the locals, while enjoying the sounds of a jazz or rythm & blues band. We pick up the tab for your first two cocktails!
