A return to elegance in the historic village of Harlem. The day has come for Minton’s to open officially to the public Monday, October 21st. The Cecil next door and jointly owned just opened last month with a bang and hasn’t stopped since. Already considered in a league of it’s own in this area. See our previous write up on The Cecil Restaurant in Harlem (Review).
We look forward to celebrating the reopening of Minton’s with such a past history of Harlem’s jazz greats when it was once called Minton’s Playhouse. This venue will require that men wear jackets. The attire (dress code) is formal and it will be nice to see women and men fill the room with a diversity of styles while enjoying live jazz music. A very timely decision to open (reopen) this historic jazz club with Harlem on the pulse now more than ever in the New York scene.
Looking forward to experiencing Minton’s next week. Dress to impress and come out to enjoy good jazz and what looks like to be great food. Take a peek at the menu below.
Here are a couple photos of entrees you can expect from the menu. Looking forward to trying the Rib-Eye steak. Minton’s MENU.
We received a note from Harlem Lofts, Inc. informing us that leasing has started at the 220 St. Nicholas building. There is no exclusive leasing agent, they are having several of Harlem’s best all work towards leasing it out as co-exclusive leasing agents. 220 St. Nicholas which was originally built for condos and has gone through a number of changes during construction, is now finally finished and ready for those looking for the newest high end rental building in Harlem to rent from. See below for further information.
“Leasing has started at 220 St. Nicholas Ave. the brand new high end rental building. We’ve met with the Owner and they are waiting on their TCO which they expect to get by ~ Oct 15th.

Rubble Kings – The story of NYC’s 1970s gang subculture and how it influenced the cultural phenomenon that is hip hop.
Friend to our blog Chad Harper of Hip Hop Saves Lives, brought to our attention a new documentary Rubble Kings. An important documentary about courage, hope and survival against all odds. This movie is pretty much finished. Unfortunately it can not be shown beyond festivals or private screenings because of music rights and archival footage that must be cleared. Being able to pay for the songs and footage in this film is crucial to telling this story accurately and in its truest form. It is almost there but just needs a little help in order to keep this film authentic and how the public deserves to see it in its true art form. Chad says “Put your money where your mouth is all you hip hop heads, if you are tired of this crap being force fed to our youth then lets make a difference.”
RUBBLE KINGS is a story of survival, hope and empowerment that resonates with audiences from all backgrounds and walks of life. It’s a testament to the influential power of a group of individuals and their ability to inspire a global movement.
