“best live band in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Most of my international friends are crazy about good live music, they love to see real artists on stage. Everytime I recommend them Brown Sugar, they really digg it. The club does not only have music, that is played live, but you can see real international talents with star-appeal in action.
For me, Brown Sugar is the best place for live music in town. Excellent music, great ambience and a cool and well mixed audience. Nice cocktails and good food too.
I can really recommend this place.

“Jazz Club & Restaurant: DANCING!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

A friend took a bunch of us to Brown Sugar. He is an accomplished ballroom dancer, and he says this is the place to go. Well, what fun! A live band played, and there were people on the dance floor all night long!
This being my first visit, I was standing back, enjoying a beverage, when a gentleman came up and asked me to dance. I do not know how to tango! I thanked him, and said no. He was not interested in taking a no for an answer, and politely cajoled me onto the dance floor with him. Well, it was so exciting! He was quite the teacher, and by the last note, I felt as though I might be a decent tango dancer, some day!
Another friend had the same experience.
We did not eat here. Actually, I didn't realize it was a restaurant until I read their business card.
There was no cover charge, and the drinks are not inexpensive. It is an enjoyable outing, dancer or not!
Just an aside: the area that the club is located in has many restaurants, small shops & a movie theatre. It was lovely to walk around afterwards, cooling off!
