This is a very special little jazz bar. Well worth booking and visiting if you love jazz in a great setting.

This was a very cool experience, nice ambience and the place is set up for the acoustics to travel all around the room very well. The drinks are decently priced, just a few snacks so don't go with an empty stomach. But all in all...More
