we can NO LONGER ALLOW MINORS inside Blue Whale.  This is without exception and regardless of the accompaniment of a parent or guardian.  We thank all the amazing young fans of Jazz who have helped build blue whale and we welcome them back when they are of legal age.  Thanks to all for understanding in this matter and continue to help Blue Whale thrive!

  1. always a great time with you all. your musical curating is on point on a consistent basis. looking forward to tonight’s offering of premasoul.

  2. How do I get tickets to see Raya on March 1st?

    1. tickets are available at the door only. please arrive early. doors open at 8pm!

  3. Hi I was wondering if you had a menu online for your club or could make reservations.

    hope to hear from you soon Adelaida

  4. is there a dress code? are nice jeans and a dress shirt acceptable?

    1. no dress code to specify here but looking nice is always preferred.

  5. Thrilled for the opportunity to record interview with Gilad Hekselman this past Monday just prior to his leaving for the West Coast to perform there at The Blue Whale with his trio. The conversation I had with him was quite enjoyable, indeed his recordings are all fantastic!!!! I am certain he is thrilling your audiences with his music.

  6. So sorry to see that you can’t allow minors with their parents to attend the performances. Do you think this
    policy is temporary? Keep me posted when this policy is changed because I would very much like to bring my son to hear the great shows you schedule.

    1. not temporary unfortunately. it’s an unfortunate policy as minors have no access to experience live jazz performances.
      something to be reconsidered for sure.

  7. Will there be tickets available at the door for the Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Birthday Ensemble show on 5.4.13? Are there any pre-sale tickets left?

    1. we recommend that you get presale tickets for this show.

    2. we recommend purchasing the presale ticket as soon as you can as this event could sell out.
