Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

60th St. & Broadway New York, NY 10023 | West 60s | 212-258-9595

Location Description:

Ahhh, corporate sponsorship at its finest. We love Coca-Cola's dedication to the arts, but to insert your name after bebop great Dizzy Gillespie's clearly trumps all good intention. Wasn't a simple "funded by Coca-Cola" plaque at the front sufficient? What's worse, the club actually charges $3 for the soda, and every visiting musician, from Wycliffe Gordon to Joe Lovano, seems to have to spit out that clunky moniker at the end of every set. "And thank you to Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola." Somewhere up in heaven, John Birks Gillespie just hocked a loog into his Coke. (ZAPPIA)
