Erleben Sie eine ausgelassene, fröhliche Nacht, wie in den 1920er Jahren! Wir zeigen Ihnen das Nachtleben im unvergänglichen Harlem. Lassen Sie sich von einem unserer professionellen Stadtführer durch das Viertel führen und erfahren Sie alles über Harlem und seine Rolle in der Geschichte des Jazz. Wir zeigen Ihnen, wie bekannte Jazzmusiker die Musikszene der Stadt New York beeinflusst haben.
Besichtigen Sie den Standort des originalen Cotton Club, wo Duke Ellington und Lena Horne Gäste aus aller Welt begeisterten. Fahren Sie am Standort des Savoy Ballroom vorbei, wo Benny Goodman und Chick Webb in ihrer „Battle of the Bands“ um die Wette musiziert haben, und wo der Charleston, der „Lindy Hop“- und der „Big Apple“-Tanz zum festen Bestandteil der amerikanischen Kultur geworden sind.
Besuchen Sie das weltberühmte Apollo Theater, wo Sarah Vaughan und Ella Fitzgerald den populären „Amateur Night“-Wettbewerb gewonnen haben. Schauen Sie in Minton's Playhouse vorbei, wo der Bebop seinen Ursprung hatte und wo die Tradition der Jam Sessions von Charlie Parker, Miles Davis und Thelonious Monk aus der Taufe gehoben wurde.
Dann gilt es einen der heißesten Clubs von Harlem zu entdecken, wo Jam Sessions und Musik bis in die frühen Morgenstunden geboten werden.
Abendessen* gibt es in Sylvia's legendärem Restaurant – „The Queen of Soul Food“ („Familiy Style“-Essen).
Montags können Sie hier Swing tanzen – es spielt eine fantastische Band mit zwölf Musikern. Eine kostenlose Tanzstunde inbegriffen! Und wir spendieren die ersten beiden Getränke im Jazz-Club!
Donnerstags können Sie hier Harlem pur mit seiner geselligen Atmosphäre erleben. Mischen Sie sich ungezwungen unter die Einheimischen und geben Sie sich dem Sound einer Jazz- oder Rythm & Blues-Band hin. Auch hier spendieren wir die ersten beiden Getränke!
*Was ist „Soul Food?
„Soul Food“ ist die traditionelle, aus den amerikanischen Südstaaten stammende Küche der Afro-Amerikaner. Sie besteht aus scharf gewürzten Rippchen, Blattkohl, frisch gebackenem Maisbrot, Schwarzaugenbohnen, und nicht zu vergessen: knusprigem Fried Chicken!
Staffin the office was very friendly. Meal was good. Tour guide very knowledgeable. Visit to Cotton Club made the evening very memorable and so fantastic.

Ce qui est bien c'est qu'ils parlent français donc pour ceux qui ont un peu de mal c'est bien. Peuvent faire des réservations pour vous
We visited family in New York and this tour was the best evening of our trip. More than excellent. Our tour guide Peggy made the tour interesting and entertaining. She was very thoughtful to the individual needs. Overall dInner at Sylvia's was good and gave us a chance to taste more than one dish. the cornbread was amazing. On the negative side, dessert was a little rushed. We then went to a small club off the beaten path with an amazing band and soulful singer. People were dancing outside. really a lot of fun and worth the money spent.
Dear Ms. Rebecca, Thank you for taking the time to post such a lovely review about your experience on our Soul Food and Jazz tour. We are glad that you had a great time. Sincerest regards, Erika Elisabeth Vice President
Amazing music. Great tour guide who spoke in French and English. Pointed out all the interesting things that we passed on the tour. Soul food was good and the band, singers and dancers were amazing.
Dear Kathclarinet, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on our Harlem Gospel tour. We are so glad that you enjoyed it! Best regards, Erika Elisabeth Vice President
Friendly knowledgeable guide who commented in French and English for our tour. After around 30 minutes driving around the southern end of Harlem we had dinner at Sylvia's which was tasty and filling, stopped briefly at the Apollo Theatre and then spent about 90 minutes at the latest incarnation of the Cotton Club. The 12 piece band for the most part seemed to be going through the motions and it seemed the club's glory days were long past. A worthwhile night however but I would be searching for a more intimate jazz venue next time.
Dear Goeff, Thank you for your review of our soul food and Jazz tour. Our tour is offered on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturday evenings with private tours that can take place on any day of the week. While the Cotton Club takes a traditional approach to Jazz music with a big band and dancers reminiscent of the 1920-40's era, we also include a variety of other local clubs in Harlem that offer different atmospheres and styles of Jazz music. The aim of our tour is to showcase the historic trajectory of Jazz music in Harlem and New York City and we continuously strive to improve our tour content. Your honest feedback is key to that process and will be strongly considered as we move forward with our Jazz tour. Sincerest regards, Erika Elisabeth Harlem Spirituals/ New York Visions
Harlem Spirituals offers numerous tours. My group decided to go on the Jazz Tour through Harlem. We choose this tour because we wanted a fun night out for our employees and that is exactly what we got! We all meet in front of Harlem Spirituals headquarters and from there got on the bus. The bus was beyond what I was expecting. The seats were comfortable, the AC worked and you could hear the tour guide over the microphone/sound system well. The tour had many interesting facts, much of which I did not know. We went passed central park, the Apollo and much more. Our first stop was at Sylvia's. I have never had Soul Food but my god it was good. There where family size portions and everything was delicious. When I think of fried chicken I think of KFC greasy chicken. Here, the chicken was perfect and it came with traditional sides like collard greens and corn bread. The dessert was TO DIE FOR. It was the most delicious thing I have ever tasted in my entire life. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. From there we went on more of a tour and down the Cotton Club. There was saw a many performances both big band and solo. They house a very special musician who is said to be the next BB King. What a treat right? The people there were very engaging and the tour came with 2 drinks on the house alcoholic and non alcoholic. WHAT A BONUS. Overall, I would say the tour was splendid and a perfect way to spend a Monday night!
I went on the soul food and jazz evening with Harlem Spirituals and I would say it was definitely the highlight of my time in New York, Peggy our guide was fantastic- informative and welcoming and as a solo traveler she made me feel completely as ease. The dinner at Sylvia's was divine but it was the music and dancing at the Cotton Club that really made the night, such soul and grace, it was truly inspiring. I can not speak highly enough of both the entire evening and this company.
Dear Daisygirl, We are so glad that you enjoyed our soul food and Jazz tour. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor. We hope that we will have the opportunity to showcase some of our other neighborhood tours of New York City on your next trip. Sincerest regards, Erika Elisabeth Harlem Spirituals Inc.
