Small fee to enter, minimum of one drink. The music was good. Atmosphere was good. Serves no food. We felt like bar snacks should've been provided, or finger foods sold. Those items boosted our sales when we managed a local pub.

When you find soul in the south, sit tight and listen. I stumbled upon this lovely jazz soul joint and I’m so glad we took a seat at the bar. Drinks are measured in good conversation and a feeling of familiarity. We enjoyed the local...More

Beer selection wasn't that good and they were out of alot of beers. The live music was amazing and really the only reason we came in. There was a $5 cover charge to get in.

They have live music. When we went it was a band that was kind of a mix of blues and jazz and was great. It’s a small space so if you want a table you’ve got to get there early but they do have space...More

We went to the early Tuesday Jazz and Funk Jam. We had a great time! I love that it was "early" which was 9pm, allowing us to stay 2hrs. My husband and I don't usually stay up late so the timing was perfect. Early enough...More
