NYC jazz landmark Lenox Lounge will not survive to 201412/9/2012
New York City jazz fans are singing the blues as Harlem’s legendary jazz club Lenox Lounge has given word it will shut down Dec. 31. Its stage has been graced by the likes of Billie Holiday and Miles Davis in its 70 years of operation, the past few decades under the ownership of Alvin Reed. And while new owner Richard Notar, who manages the Nobu franchise, says he wants to reopen it, the fear is the club will lose its authentic charm and perhaps even its name, despite Notar's promises otherwise: "I don't want to change anything — I am not going to bring sushi up there. I want to continue what was 70, 80 years ago. I understand this is a gem." [Source]
