The Blue Wisp Jazz Club is a Cincinnati institution recently relocated and expanded, with a restaurant component added, not patronized nearly enough, and deserving of your (1) consideration followed by your (2) patronage. And it is very good, a most satisfying evening. We are not talking haute cuisine here, but the food within its diverse categories is excellent, ample, and a superiorily excellent value. The drinks are generous, and the service is enthusiastic, responsive, caring, fast, ......... what more can be said?
On to the music: that's what The Blue Wisp really is known for. It's mostly jazz of all kinds and styles, but we recently attended a wonderful program of young opera singers. How great to be dining and listening to top quality live music. Their collection of jazz CD's is also enormous, deep, and diverse.
There are two large rooms, one is the vast bar with lots of stools and large screen TV's, tables around the perimeter for diners, then there is the adjoining show room, very typical of jazz clubs from New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, low ceiling, can be made dark even with the windows out to the street, a good jazz room.
Overall, going to the Blue Wisp is fun, can be very romantic if you are so inclined, is casual, the food is very good. It's a big step up from the former location, it's a very good restaurant. We're going to go more often, why don't you?
