TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- The Jazz Forum , a new Tarrytown club featuring world renown jazz musicians, has officially opened.
The 100-seat space will present headline jazz artists on Fridays and Saturdays and celebrated Brazilian groups on Sundays in an intimate listening room with clear views of the performers from all table and bar seats.
In addition to music, guests will find a handcrafted walnut bar, light menu, separate lounge and pool room, and a contemporary art gallery,
The club features Italian wines, local beers, special cocktails and a full bar. The menu is Italian “quiet food” of tapenades, charcuterie, cheeses, and desserts.
