On a whim, we decided to get tickets to a Thursday night jazz performance and had a wonderful evening. The atmosphere really is like the early 20th century clubs in some of the older movies. We reserved one of the booths facing the stage and arrived about 30 minutes before the performance so we could enjoy dinner prior to the... More

The food and entertainment was excellent! The venue managers and entertainers made my birthday one to remember for many years.

A real hidden gem as very few of the locals I talked with had been or even heard of it... Its big on private events / wedding receptions but is an awesome setting for date night dinner and live music... Booths in the back are definitely the best most intimate setting and book first, couples (2 peps) only tables at... More

This club is beautiful and a great place to go for live music. My husband and I always try to go when they do a Frank Sinatra tribute. We've been impressed by the food, the music and the staff and can't wait to go again!

The venue is very nice, and the food was very good. A little expensive, but you don't go here every week! We celebrated my birthday here and enjoyed The Fabulous Hubcaps singing 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's music. The service was good, not extraordinary. My $10 margarita was not worth it.....I asked for very little ice and received a drink... More

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

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
