Jazz has become a quintessential part of New York’s identity, with its roots in Harlem. Throughout Manhattan there are countless jazz clubs that offer both dinner and a show, but few can compare to an evening at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, in the heart of Columbus Circle.

As people arrive at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, located in Jazz at Lincoln Center and named after legendary musician Dizzy Gillespie, they are welcomed with a stunning view of Central Park and Columbus Circle. While guided to one of their spacious tables, diners will realize that the city skyline is the perfect backdrop for an evening of music and dining.

Blending together artisanal comfort food and classic American cuisine, Dizzy’s Club delivers delicious dishes that match the quality the music. With new dishes added to the seasonal menu, their signature dishes remain on the menu throughout the year, including Dizzy’s Cheddar burger. Made with half a pound of prime beef and mixed with katchkie tomato, the juicy burger is a hidden culinary gem at the club. One of the new additions to the menu is the beef short ribs. The flavorful meat is made with potato fondant, pumpkin puree, and root vegetables, and drizzled in a Bourbon demi glaze that brings the taste of the season into the plate.

The signature dish at Dizzy's is the chicken gumbo. Bringing the zesty taste of New Orleans to New York City, the dish is filled with slow simmered chicken with okra and Carolina rice. With a subtle kick of spiciness, the gumbo is the ideal dish to start the night while watching a performance.

Continuing to impress diners, Dizzy’s offers a vast cocktail menu that will have any cocktail aficionado excited to try one. Butterscotch lovers can rejoice with the Winter Solstice cocktail, which mixes whiskey, Butterscotch Schnapps, and spiced apple cider. With one sip it will make people feel they are having a piece of their grandmother’s favorite candy. For people looking to end the evening with a relaxing drink, they can try The Night Show, with Earl Grey-infused vodka, blackberry syrup, fresh lemon, and club soda.

While the idea of dessert might be hard to consider, no one can resist the allure of the pecan pie éclair. If diners never tried an éclair, this is the time to indulge. With Georgia pecans, molasses filling, sweet potato apple hash, and lingonberry marshmallow fluff, this dessert satisfies any sweet tooth.

From a romantic dinner for two or wanting to discover up-and-coming jazz stars, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola offers a special evening and more. Once the diners enter, they will be treated with first-class service and leave speechless from the flavorful foods to the spectacular sounds.
