The original Lenox Lounge closed in 2012, with the space being taken over by a new tenant. But fear not: trademark-owner Alvin Reed plans to reopen the iconic jazz club—complete with its original sign and furnishings—down the street from the original location. Stay tuned.
The historic Lenox Lounge has been in the Harlem community since 1939, serving as the back drop for many jazz legends such as Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane. The Jazz Club also known as the Zebra Room was once used by the Harlem Renaissance writes James Baldwin and Langston Hughes. It was also said to be a hangout for Malcolm X.
Almost lost to the changing Jazz scene, the Lenox Lounge was thankfully renovated to mimic its original 1930’s art-deco style. The Zebra Room in the back is arguably the best looking Jazz spaces in New York. For the most part, expect to see local jazz greats with some outside talent thrown in the mix.
