A short YouTube video that opens with the murmur of a jazz club and the silhouette of a lilting and enticing songstress at an old-school mike, ends with a mysterious clue: “The NoMad Upstairs Thursdays 1170 Broadway New York”.
A representative shed light on the enticing accompanying drum-brushing and finger-snapping that accompanies the video’s beautiful shots of cocktails being prepared and gently sloshed in beautifully-lit, ice-clinking glasses: every Thursday beginning today will feature live music, drinks, and snacks, the first four sessions featuring Stacie Orrico and her trio.
What was the inspiration? “Just out of our love for music,” noted The NoMad’s Will Guidara. “We wanted a venue where we could showcase some incredible musicians and have great live music within our walls on a more regular basis. We're really excited about this. Twenty-Eighth Street is where the famed Tin Pan Alley was back in the day; we're excited to bring a musicality back to the street."
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the music starts at 7 p.m. and runs through 11:45 p.m. The snack menu was still being finalized in the run up to tonight’s first session, but there will be food and booze through last call at 11:30 p.m. Reservations must be made over the phone, it’s credit card only, and no parties larger than six are being accommodated in what you have to think should become one of the City’s popular new sultry spots for food and jazz lovers.
