Funky little place that really is like a little cave. It's not cavernous, by any means, and I can imagine on a busy night it could get pretty stuffy in there, but luckily, the night I visited it wasn't too crowded and I was able to score a nice front view seat (get there early for prime seats as it was first come, first choice). Dark, cozy, romantic, reasonably priced, up close and personal with the artists - pretty much everything you'd want a jazz spot to be. On the night I visited, the artists were walking around hob-nobbing with the patrons between sets - you can't get that at the Verizon Center. The food was surprisingly good. I had a jerk chicken and pasta dish that was quite tasty. The service was adequate, a little slow during the second show, but the server was very pleasant. Everyone I asked a question answered it with a smile. I'll likely be back when an artist on my list is playing.
