unfortunately guys don't go there just to dance :( So it's hard to find someone who truly just wants to dance with you. I guess that's a problem in every club though... The seating is limited so go there early if you want to get a table. Going alone will be no fun. They say "tasteful dress attire required" but... More

Went for the beginners class on Sunday night and it was fab! I went on my own and made some new friends there. About 20 people showed up, only one couple so that worked out great. But I suppose it kinda depends on the night. The teacher is funny and gets the pace just right. Later in the evening more... More

I went to Ryles this past Saturday night. No Static performed the music of Steely Dan. The band performed the whole Gaucho album as well as some other Steely Dan hits. They did a great job! It was a long show as rhey played from 9pm to 1230am. They had the crowd up on their feet dancing and it was... More

We had a lovely jazz brunch at Ryles, mostly lovely due to the company, but the food was good and the jazz was nice. I got the croissant French toast and ate it ALL. It comes with a side of fruit and your choice of meat (bacon, sausage, ham). My husband got the special omelet which he said was good,... More

Went to Ryles on a Friday night to see the Black Sea Salsa band, an excellent 14-piece Latino group. Parking in the area was a challenge - public transit may be advisable if driving in circles looking for a vacant meter pushes your angry button. Arrived about 15 minutes before the 8:00 p.m. show. There was ample seating. Loved the... More

Low-key, been around longer than any of the hotel-based jazz clubs in Boston or Cambridge. Great spot for a drink, date night, chilling out.

Wile I lament that Mitch, the pit master left - the BBQ tradition lives on and Mitch would be proud. Still the greatest BBQ in Cambridge - this together with Jazz makes a wonderful evening. Don't hesitate to check out the scene !

We go for the jazz brunch on Sundays. The food is good, standard brunch fare. The atmosphere is relaxed and the music, by local performers of a very high standard, is always a fitting accompaniment to a casual, laid-back Sunday.
