The fight for small venues to survive
The emblematic Smalls Jazz Club located in the heart of the once vibrant Greenwich Village is facing a dire situation. “We don’t know if we will have to close”, says it’s owner Spike Wilner. The club was closed from March 15th until September 30th . Since then it has been allowed to open at 25 percent capacity and is now offering two sets a day with fifteen seats available per set.
