New Year's Eve the greedy owners jammed so many tables in that you couldn't get thru to dance to the Great Doc Scantlin. It wouldn't matter if you did get through, they put so many tables on the dance floor you couldn't dance anyway. We got there at 7:30 with the statement "You want to be done eating when the... More

Saw Doc Scantlin & His Imperial Palms Orchestra with Chou Chou recently at the Carlyle Club with a group of a dozen or so. The place reminded me of the old River Club in Georgetown. The entertainment was very good, food mediocre at best and once the show began the service trailed off significantly as I had to walk over... More

This place is amazing. I went with my fiance, and we couldn't have been happier. The show we saw was on one of their Jazz Thursdays, and the performers were fantastic. Very engaging, and actually spent some time trying to get the audience involved in the show which was entertaining. The decor is great, very old school big band jazz... More

I had on a very nice dress to dinner last night, and the server spilled an ENTIRE tray of drinks down my back. The drinks fell over the high backing of the chair and straight into my seat - covering everything from my hair to my entire dress, and purse that was on the floor. The server was very nice... More

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Carlyle. It was everything and more than we could have asked. The co-owner Sharon, did everything in her power to make sure we had everything we asked for. The night could not have been more perfect. Everyone loved the club and the food was amazing. The portions of food that... More

My daughter had her wedding here. The facilities , food, and service was very good as promised. The staff quickly changed the ceremony area and stage to a beautiful reception area while the guests had drinks etc in the bar area. My guests comment on the high quality, presentation, and quantity of the food. The club was spacious yet intimate... More

Night Club with atmosphere, friendliness and great music. My husband and I have been several times, the "Shows" and bands are varied enough to please any age group the food is good, as well as the service. A great place to celebrate a Night on the Town! Nice evening for us as well as our daughter and her husband.

We had our daughter's wedding reception at the Carlyle Club, which I realize is a lot different from just having dinner. We worked with them for more than a year, and they were fantastic. It's a gorgeous art deco space with a stage and dance floor. We had an open bar and sit-down multi-course dinner for 105 people with choice... More

Recently attended Latin Night there and had a fantastic time. The Club was generally easy to find. There's street parking or severely reduced parking under the restaurant. The entrance has a night club/speakeasy feel when you enter. The greeter was prompt as was the seater. I bought tickets online and was able to select seating, which was quite convenient. The... More
