Live Music & Events


Inspired by the Harlem renaissance of the 1920s, this unique culinary tribute to to Afro-American/Afro-Caribbean culture does double duty — food and music — and more, with regular live tunes, art exhibitions, film- and media-event hosting. In a contemporary ballroom-styled space that's reminiscent of another era, Harlem fairly jumps with soul, jazz, Motown, pop, blues, R&B and funk performances.
