    Love it for the local flavor and for those who used to be local too. The room just feels right. When possible, check out a few of the regulars: Bob Reynolds, Jonah Smith, Doug Wamble or Amy Cervini.

    One of the last standing true jazz speakeasy's left in the city. Never a bad show. If you want to see committed musicians making progressive and pure art their way, live then this is the place.

    Old timers' jazz band was very entertaining. (Sorry I cant recall their name!) Great seats. Drinks were reasonable. Great service. $10 cover seems a bit much when the band also expects to be tipped.

    Always loved the music here, but the bartender (old guy with a lisp) is, to put it mildly, arrogant and has major attitude. Kinda kills the vibe.

    Drinks pricier than expected but the music is usually good and the vibe from this 90 yr old club can't be topped.
