Live Music

Great small local acts playing every type of music. They spin records when there isn’t live music. Good cocktails and the atmosphere is like a chic church basement talent show.

Basement jazz bar that is lively and so much fun even if jazz is not your thing. The lines can get long and they reach capacity so good to arrive early though they usually have multiple shows/sets per night so there is some turn over throughout the evening.
