Smoke Jazz & Supper Club-Lounge is offering Columbia students a 20% off discount card!
The corner of 106th & Broadway has been a jazz hang for a long time, but only opened as Smoke Jazz & Supper Club-Lounge eleven years ago, a significant improvement from the previous Augie’s. Smoke, with its relaxed and intimate setting, draws notable regulars. Weekends tend to feature big names, but according to Armand Hirsch, CC ’13 and sick bassist, weekdays are best for just hanging out. Tuesdays offer “greasy, soulful organ music,” while Wednesdays are reserved for Funk and Soul. Come Thursday, Smoke hosts a featured artist, followed by live hip hop. Armand is playing Tuesday, September 21st, so you should go check him out. And our very own Professor Chris Washburne, Head of Jazz at CU, Chair of Ethnomusicology, and Director of Louis Armstrong Jazz Performance Program, plays Latin music every Sunday night with his band.
Go experience the magical and mysterious form of spontaneous creation that is jazz improvisation. It’s so refreshing to watch talented musicians just jam, and Smoke seems like a genuinely chill place. Plus, with the new 20% off student discount card, you don’t have to break the bank. Good deal!
