Really cool place for jazz presentations. The sound was a bit too loud and Food a bit expensive, however it was really tasty. The place is not fancy, but it goes for the purpose of delivering great jazz.

The band was just excellent with New Orleans Jazz style, the quisine is ethopian and it was ok. I loved this place which is on U Street the hip place in DC

We went on a Friday night for the first set. It was a septet and they were crowded on to the tiny stage. We never order food at jazz clubs as it is usually disappointing so we stuck to dessert and drinks. The carrot cake...More
