Conveniently located in the heart of Times Square, The B.B. King Blues Club & Grill offers music fans of every genre a truly unique experience. Owned by the Bensusan Family, proprietors of the world-renowned Blue Note Jazz Club and Highline Ballroom, the club features world-class musical talent and consists of two distinct spaces: the Showcase Room & Lucille’s Grill.  With a full-service restaurant boasting an American Continental menu with a hint of Southern flair, patrons are able to enjoy a quality dining experience at all shows.

Notable past shows include: B.B. King (who had his ten thousandth performance at the club!), Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, Buddy Guy, The Beach Boys, Dr. John, Robert Cray, the Roots, Patti LaBelle, George Clinton & the P-Funk All-Stars, Gregg Allman, ZZ Top, Jackson Browne, Bo Diddley, Brian Wilson, Alicia Keys, Etta James, Erykah Badu, Burt Bacharach, Michael Bublé, Eartha Kitt, Wayne Newton, Pat Benatar, the Fray, LeAnn Rimes, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Miley Cyrus, AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson, Motorhead, Todd Rundgren, Wilson Pickett, Hubert Sumlin (who was joined on stage by Elvis Costello), Sonny Rollins, Rakim, Public Enemy, Ice Cube, Chrisette Michele, The Jonas Brothers, Peter Frampton, Jimmy Cliff, Billy Ray Cyrus (accompanied by daughter Miley!), and many more.  John Mayer’s first time ever playing with B.B. King also took place on the B.B. Kings stage during the club’s 5th anniversary.

When the venue is not hosting music legends, it warmly invites private events to use the incredible room. The 11,000 square foot space can hold up to 1,000 people and boasts a mahogany framed, bi-level bar & grill complete with colorful contemporary art and signature saxophone beer taps on the famous 40-foot bar.  Lucille’s has its own stage for small performances or meetings making it the perfect location for any event up to 350. With two-tiered, horseshoe-shaped seating (booths & tables) centered around a 30-foot stage, allowing for up close and personal views of all performances, seeing a show or holding an event at this NYC landmark is truly remarkable.  It is the perfect place for everything from private meetings to large full-scale events.

In the past, B.B. King Blues Club has hosted group events for clients including Lustgarten Foundation, YAHOO, Corporate Challenge Boxing, the Roundabout Theatre, Showtime, MTV, Wilhelmina/MODE Magazine Model Search, LEVIS, Philip Morris Marketing Corporation, HBO Premier Party, and many more. The club specializes in conception to completion events working with event planners to create their vision as they see it.
 
Giving back to the community and worldwide has always been an invaluable component of what makes B.B. King Blues Club & Grill so special.  Over the past decade, the club has been a passionate benefactor to Save A Child’s Heart, an international humanitarian project providing life-saving heart surgeries and follow-up care for children.  The club also annually hosts Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Broadway bears auction to raise money against AIDs, Citymeals-on-Wheels helping to deliver meals to homebound elderly New Yorkers, and The Path Fund’s Rockers on Broadway, which raises money for various causes. This year, the club was happy to help The Path Fund raise over $10,000 for the children in Haiti via UNICEF and Save The Children.
 
B.B. King Blues Club & Grill certainly has plenty to celebrate!
