  • Lots of alcohol. If that's not what you're after, keep going. Great steak though!
  • Voted Best Jazz Club by City Pages in 2011! The club is regarded as one of the premier jazz clubs in the world, and the sound is always first rate.
  • Come early mid week or "no food for you"!
  • Voted Best Jazz Club by City Pages in 2012. Whatever your music tastes may be, you are bound to come across either an old or a new favorite playing at the Dakota on any given night of the week.
  • So the bathrooms are really clean. I say that's a plus.
  • Don't sit on the upper level against the wall directly in front of the stage. Seems counter intuitive but upper level seats on the sides of the stage have better views of the stage.
  • Excellent place for fab food and great music.
  • Flatbread and spreads are great for a classy app while enjoying jazz and cocktails.
  • One of the JNG's favorite places to play!
  • Awesome Jazz life music
  • Pay extra for A train seats-so worth it!
  • Order the scallops! So good. The fries with bernaise are also great.
  • Minneapolis! R&B vocalist Jos James plays the Dakota 12/14/11 at 7 & 9:30pm!! You won't want to miss this one! Give us a shout (@AMIagency) when you check in!
  • Nachito Herrera playing? Don't sleep. Less $$ than the big names that come through, but consistently amazing on the keys.
  • Try the Jalapeno Poppers. These trashy-wonderful bar menu poppers are stuffed with fontina cheese, wrapped in speck ham, and lolling in chipotle cream.
  • Voted as Best Late Night Dining by City Pages in 2010. Get in before midnight and you can have a nice little feast for less than youd get for that old Miles Davis album.
  • one of the best sounding rooms for a show, bar seats are awesome!
  • See a show. Say "Hi" to Jack.
  • Realy nice place and nice food.
  • The way concerts should be (when you are old and lazy and like to sit and eat).
