The place is cool just to have a drink before dinner. But don’t eat there, this is awful! Fat and without taste. You will prefer any other place to this one.

Highly recommend to have it all in one place. Great food, service and music. I dont write many reviews but had so much fun that it is worth spreading the word.

We walked in too. and had to eat at a high top table on the first floor off of the bar area. It was cooler (heat wise) than being down stairs so it worked out better for us. Enjoy the food is very good.

Sorry, missed your last question. I believe there is jazz every night, but could be wrong on that score. If you're there December 31 & January 1, I would check NOW about reservations.
