“Everything I wanted out of a little jazz club!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Great ambiance, wonderfully cool little place. The appetizers were amazing; I had a caeser salad and deep fried shrimp. The main course was good but not great. I wish I had chose a different item (had the southern deep-fried chicken). The portion size is really large, impossible to eat everything they gave you. Dessert was great, but by that time I was much to full.

We did the pre-fix dinner as it was a weeknight which included three courses for 38 dollars, which is a good price considering the music and entertainment is included. I loved the vibe, and the decor. It was everything and more that I was looking for in a little jazz club!! I would visit again for sure. One negative is that it is a fairly small space so you are seated very close to the neighboring tables.

“Intimate and jazzy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

Very small venue, but surprisingly uncrowded considering the quality of both the music and the food.

Sure, the pizza was a bit of a wet mess, but it was very tasty and the sea food pasta didn't skimp on the lobster. Great value, certainly, and an excellent atmosphere to boot.

“a great unstuffy jazz club”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013 via mobile

how great to hear and see jazz in a real club, not a faux club or auditorium. yes, smoke is cramped. last time we saw a 16 piece band on the tiny stage... the sax leader was almost in the men's room... but up close and personal - wonderful. the staff is always friendly. the cover and minimums are reasonable and carefully explained. this is a hideaway; don't tell everyone about it. the first time we went several years ago, bill charlap was playing to an underwhelming crowd and we had a nice talk with him at the bar... now you have to go to the rose room to hear him... get to smoke while the musicians are still on their way up

“Ring in advance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Ring in advance and get your name put on the door. We didn't and just rocked up about 10pm. Had to come back for the second show at midnight. It is a very small intimate venue and well worth the wait. Loved it.
