I really want to like this place. It's an old school art deco supper club where you can go see a show and have dinner. We've given them numerous times to wow us over several years and every time we leave saying we should never go back. You have to pay for the show ticket in addition to dinner and... More

What starred out well soon deteriorated dramatically. We make reservations for a table for two. Shortly after we were seated another couple was brought to the table, which was set for four. We asked our waitress about it and we were told she could do nothing. The man being seated, said if we didn't like it, we could complain to... More

I'm too young to have been to the Cotton Club, but if I did, I'd imagine The Carlyle Club is just like the venerable jazz institution. The entertainers are diverse, the price is right, the food is great! Dancing is encouraged and what draws me to the club! I have yet to not enjoy myself.

Visited this location for a friends birthday dinner. The food was great, service was great. Some of our guest were Russian, so it was so complementing to have Russian servers also. The live music was great. Definitely a spot you should check out.

We returned to the Carlyle Club for the second year in a row for their New Year's Eve celebration and once again had a wonderful evening. The main draw was the entertainment for the evening, Doc Scantlin and Cho Cho's big band. They were great musicians and provided a night of dancing and fun for all. The wait staff was... More
