There’s never a bad time to swing by the Great White Way to see a show, but twice a year it would be crazy not to consider grabbing some friends and family and heading to the city for a wonderful night of live theater. This year, NYC Broadway Week Winter 2019 runs from Monday, January 21 through Sunday, February 10.

And no, your math skills are not that rusty – Broadway Week in NYC is not one week but actually three! Yet the real math about this event is the 2-for-1 Ticket Offer that is at the core of this celebration, promising that you will get 50% off each ticket! Besides these fun facts, there are a few other basics any Broadway Week patron should know:

  • There is a list of over 20 participating shows (available here). From tried and true family-favorites like Aladdin and Wicked to a certain Phantom and his longest-running show in history, there promises to be something for everyone!
  • There are two general ticket sales codes to remember to unlock the savings – BWAYWK for standard 2-for-1 tickets and BWAYUP for the “upgraded option” (seats closer to the stage than the regularly-priced seats).
  • Many nearby NYC restaurants offer special pre-theater menus that cater to both matinee and nighttime shows.

Another way to get the most out of your New York City Broadway Week experience? The comfort and convenience of The Manhattan Club makes us a great home base for theatergoers throughout the year. Check out our special offers and save even more during your Broadway-inspired winter getaway in NYC!

Often thought of as the Jazz Capital of the World, our amazing city is gearing up to play host to the 15th Anniversary of Winter Jazzfest. Since 2005, this annual event has continued to cement its reputation as the best of the best when it comes to new and vibrant sounds throughout the genre. This year, a wonderful series of "Jazz Talks" has been added, bringing together even more talent to the stage in a groundbreaking series of conversations with artists, authors, musicians and many others.
And, just like a musician getting ready for their own Winter Jazzfest in NYC moment, we have some tips on how you can best experience this fabulous nine night affair!

Get In Tune!
This year, Winter Jazzfest runs from Friday, January 4 through Saturday, January 12, 2019. More than 100 performers will take the stage across a variety of venues in the city (key spots include Le Poisson Rouge, Brooklyn Steel and Nublu). Depending upon what type of jazz suits your soul, from the classics with sax giant Gart Bartz to the more experimental riffs of guitarist Mary Halvorson, you'll want to check the line-up before you head out into the city to take in the tunes.

Hit the Stage!
More popular than ever before, the Winter Jazzfest Marathon, has now expanded to stretch across both weekends of the festival. A Half Marathon (January 5) will bring the jazz to Greenwich Village across six venues, while the standard Two-Night Marathon (January 11-12) will blow into 11 joints across Lower Manhattan. Most events are also available on an "a la carte” basis, which is great if you just have a couple of favorites or your time to attend is a bit limited. 

Take a Bow!
End your musical evenings relaxing in the luxurious comfort of The Manhattan Club. Conveniently located in Midtown, our suite accommodations provide the perfect home-away-from-home experience for your Winter Jazzfest visit.
