Great Venue and Food!

He walked by many times when drinks were empty and did his best to ignore our table. It was obvious who his favorite tables were... read more

The wine was undrinkable. The service was slow. We ordered the Chacutterie plate which was bland cheese and crackers strait out of plastic wrap. No almonds, cranberry crackers or olives per the menu. The owners should be embarrassed.

Small jazz bar. Make reservations early - only open a few nights a week. Tapas for food - and they're excellent. Nice atmosphere - great place for a date. unique.

Can't fathom what the wait staff was doing rather than realizing you have so few customers, how could the service be so bad?

very nice place to sit and enjoy live jazz music in this city. It is a cozy spot and i have yet to be displeased with any of my ventures to this establishment! sometimes i have had to wait a bit to get seated inside due to space constraints but once seated, all is good!

This little gem is hidden on a back street in Old Colorado City. The only evidence of the entrance is small "M" on the gate to the patio, but once you find it, you'll discover it is worth the search. My husband and I enjoyed the live music, while sampling several of the tapas they have to offer. Small plates,... More

My girlfriend and I stopped by for an after dinner drink. We each got a mojito. The drinks were very good, although they were very small.We didn't really care for the band that was playing, so we asked for our check. Imagine our surprise when the bill was almost $26.00 for the two little mojitos. Even if they had been... More

The wife and I went for our anniversary and were so very happy with the experience. There is indoor and outdoor seating and the night was just perfect for the outdoor dining experience. The menu has many delicious tapas options and an excellent set of cocktail options. We had the truffle fries, and the scallops and the scallops were one... More

The kitchen apparently does a creditable job, we only had dessert and drinks. This is a small, intimate jazz club. During the summer, they open up the patio and it is much larger. They do have good live jazz. The drinks and food are a little pricey, but there is no cover charge, so I consider that a good trade-off.... More

My husband & I had a perfect evening here. We visited Labor Day weekend 2013. Sat at bar and had the BEST bartender experience we have had in a long time. Nate was perfect. Fast, courteous, & knowledgeable! Very friendly and didn't treat us like the tourists we were. Music was perfect. We only had desert here, as we had... More
