My husband and I went to this jazz bar after dinner. There was a great trio playing last Saturday night! I felt like I was thrown back to the 1950's sipping a manhattan while listening to great jazz. I would make it my mission to...More

Stopped in before heading to Oyster House for dinner. I really enjoyed the music selection! My friend had the Prosecco and commented on the fast service at the bar. I recommend to solo, group, and couples looking for some nice atmosphere in Philly.

The only way we could have had a better table to enjoy the Orrin Evans Trio with Kevin Eubanks would have been to join the band. Good food and service rounded out a truly enjoyable evening. The intimate club is always a good bet for...More

With the decline of the iconic Ortlieb's, and the dearth of venues at which to hear live music, Chris' Jazz Café has emerged as the premier place in Philly to hear live jazz. Fortunately, this title does not come just by default...check their monthly lineup,...More

Sadly this wonderful venue allows boisterous drunks into the same space where serious art it being created. So if you go for the music, sit as close to the stage as possible. PS. I don't think this is management's fault. Rather it's that the club...More

One of the greatest jazz restaurant's I've ever been to. I had a Cajun rice with seafood which was terrific. And the music, the music was great, the pianist leading the band was both talented and nice. A must go.
