Spend the evening at the Phoenix and we will def. be back. Cover charge of $5.00. Love the doorman who made sure we would have a seat before taking our money. Drink were reasonably priced. Small venue but very cozy. Service was great. First "band" played some Jazz and some Blues but also 60's and 70's music. They were fabulous.... More

My dad came to town to visit and Lonnie McFadden was playing. We have seen him before, always a fun entertainer! Good venue for live music, not too loud and good service. Reasonable happy hour specials.

Reminiscent of an authentic speak easy, The Phoenix had an amazing jazz band, excellent happy hour & a packed house. If you enjoy jazz in a cozy little place it's definitely worth a stop.

I ate there and got food poisoning. Spent three days in the hospital! Only food I'd eaten in twenty four hours. Never again.

On my most recent road trip, I found myself in Kansas City, Missouri. I was looking for a local restaurant to eat at and stumbled upon the lovely little Jazz club. Great local talent with delicious food. Total win!

Had a great time listening to a wonderful blues band...appetizers were delish! Eggplant and crab cakes very good! Nice wine selection as well. Service was a little on the slow side. She didn't check back very often...could have gotten more out of us if she would have been more attentive...all in all a great time was had by all!

Lucky to find a table in the back where we could enjoy the music. Only had drinks, but the food at other tables looked good. Unfortunately, we arrived toward the end of one musician's set, then had to wait an hour for the next group to begin. Wish there hadn't been that lull...

The Phoenix Jazz Club offers some of the best music in town in a "Speak easy" atmosphere. Small club so get there early if you want to see the band, but you can hear them everywhere in the club!!
