Enjoyed a winter evening of great jazz and dinner with some fun cocktails. We had a great reserved table upfront near the music and enjoyed the ambiance of a great jazz club.

Came with an out of town friend for Cliff Bell's brunch. I had shrimp and grits and she had eggs Benedict. Both were excellent. The live music was awesome as well. The interior was gorgeous. The staff was friendly and attentive. I would go back.
