On top of the Black Labrador pub in the quiet end of Montrose (by Downtown). Service is good, drinks are nice, pub food is decent and wait staff are very pleasant (at least on the night we went). It comes with a two-hour jazz set...on many nights.More
Check on their web as they have weekly live jazz bands playing at Cezanne. It is great to listen to live music! The bands I have seen were amazing, and it is a quite small venue to it makes it a very intimate concert.
Looking for a Friday night jazz spot? This maybe the best offering in the Houston area (i still need to check out Red Cat Cafe to conclude this). Its right above the Black Labrador. Very intimate venue that can get crowded like it did when...I visited, leaving for standing room only. The music was great and the service was very fast. I recommend the Merlot. It's a $10 entry fee, but I think it is well worth the spend. Will definitely be visiting again.More
I almost don't want to write a review because I don't want anyone to find out how cool this place is. If you love experiencing good jazz up close while sipping on a drink there is no place better in Texas. Take a date, have...a drink and enjoy beautiful music played by some really skilled jazz players. This is the kind of place you can't stop thinking about after you leave.More
This is THE place to go in Houston to listen to jazz. It is a great listening venue. They have a baby grand piano and an intimate setting. The local jazz musicians love to perform here, which makes for an inspired set. My only complaint...has to do with their outdated drink menu. Their bar is stuck back in the 1990's. Their beer list needs to be updated and their cocktails are just not that good. This would not be a big deal if there was not the mandated 1 drink minimum along with the cover charge. If they added a few microbrews on tap or even bottle and then added in a few classic cocktails or at least stocked some small batch bourbon this place would be perfect. Despite that, if you want a pleasant atmosphere to listen to jazz and meet some nice people, then there really isn't another place to go.More
This is strictly a place to listen to great jazz and have a few drinks - intimate (yes- it is small) but everyone there is there to listen - this is not a talkative crowd that the music has to compete with. Only open Friday...and Saturday evenings, the doors open at 8:30 - first set at 9. Seats fill up pretty quickly. Not much of a "down side" - due to the size - you won't find big comfy chairs - but then last evening I was about a meter from the NYC pianist/composer, Leslie Pintchik, whose trio was playing last evening. It is one of the few places I feel comfortable as a woman going alone. Whether visiting musicians or locals - I have never been disappointed with the entertainment.More
