Went here on a Saturday night. We had reservations for dinner in the jazz bar so we could enjoy the music that started at 8:30. We had drinks and several items off the starter menu, all of which were quite tasty. Loved the firecracker shrimp....More

In the heart of gaslamp district, we found fun live music and reasonable food and drink for the area. Also, enjoyed the Jim Croce nostalgia and caused me to do a little Croce history review on my iphone!
