Named for alto saxophonist and jazz pioneer Charlie “Bird” Parker who dubbed it “The Jazz Corner of the World,” Birdland opened on December 15th 1949. For 60 years it has been home to jazz legends, from Parker, John Coltrane Duke Ellington and Count Basie to Oscar Peterson, Hank Jones, Diana Krall and everyone in between. The original 52nd street location was a cultural barometer and meeting place, inspiring the songs “Birdland” and “Lullaby of Birdland,” and serving as a regular haunt for celebrities and cultural figures. The modern incarnation is a state of the art nightclub featuring award winning Southern and Cajun cuisine, first rate sound and lighting and a who’s who of contemporary musical artists, 7 nights a week.
