If you enjoy great live Jazz bands in a small bar that absolutely oozes atmosphere then this is the place for you- it's fantastic. A small bar, some 10 tables or so and a small stage, usually complete with a jazz band (4 musicians would fill it). The food is very good, the staff are friendly, the atmosphere is perfect..the cocktails delicious..... whats not to like? Did I mention the great music?! Its a little out of the way but well worth the effort and perfectly accessible by subway.

Very small location and it’s hard to move around to get to bathrooms. Music was great and food was excellent. Although I was not a fan of the lobster bisque, the evening was worth the $$.

We visited the place for the second set, a late night in May. The music, the jamming and the ambience was splendid! The club is quite small, so the experience is intimate. I strongly recommend to make reservation in advance!

We booked ahead of our trip and I’m pleased we did as the venue was more intimate than I’d realised and we wouldn’t have got a seat otherwise.

The ambiance of the venue is lovely. Very cosy and intimate with tables very close to one another.

The food was delicious - the French onion soup was out of this world and the pork escalope was beautiful too. My husband had the lobster ravioli and that was equally gorgeous.

The music was great - our first time at a jazz club so we didn’t have anything to compare it to but we thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go to another. Acoustics were spot on.

The only downside to our night was we were given clear instructions not to talk during the performance as it’s such a small venue and would be disrespectful to people around us if we spent the entire time talking. Annoyingly, the table next to us did just that and talked constantly and loudly. I would have liked it if one of the staff had had a quiet word with them to keep the noise down as it put a dampener on the night. It would have been very awkward for us to address them directly as the tables were so close, it would have made us feel very uneasy.

Thank you for a lovely time!
