In its heyday, Harlem was home to more than 400 nightclubs and all the legends played and sang there, including Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald.

    The highlight of the evening is a live jazz dinner show at a Harlem nightclub that re-creates the experience of the Harlem in its most exciting musical period.

    Afterwards, you will return to the hotel for the evening.
