About the Supplier

Harlem Spirituals - New York Visions Group allow tourists to soak in the local flavor, and experience the exciting diversity of New York with their specially curated New York City Tours led by expert local guides.

Here's the plan...

Tour the fascinating district of Harlem and learn about the neighborhood’s role in jazz history and how the noted jazz musicians of Harlem gave New York its musical edge.

See the site of the original Cotton Club, where Duke Ellington and Lena Horne spent hours wowing crowds from around the world. Drive past the site of the Savoy Ballroom where Benny Goodman and Chick Webb fought it out during their Battle of the Bands and where the Charleston, Lindy Hop and the Big Apple dances were firmly cemented into American culture. 

See the world-famous Apollo Theater, where Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald won the popular Amateur Night, which still boasts standing-room-only audiences every Wednesday night. Pass by the Lincoln Theater, where Fats Waller’s virtuosity underscored Vaudeville shows, and Minton's Playhouse, where bebop was born and where Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk started the tradition of jam sessions. 

Dine at Sylvia’s famous restaurant and enjoy a traditional meal of BBQ ribs, fried chicken or fish, collard greens, mac and cheese, cornbread, coffee, tea and dessert. 

Then dance your socks off at Harlem's best-known bebop spot. Enjoy the easy-going, convivial atmosphere as you mingle freely with the locals and experience the shared essence of Harlem. Your first two cocktails at the club are complimentary!
