We were visiting from out of town and wanted to hear some jazz. Found Vieux Carre online and were so thrilled that we did. Friendly, fun staff. Great music. Reasonably priced menu with good local craft beer list. Highly recommend checking it out.

I love the basement atmosphere and the energy. The music on the occasional Jam nights (like after the St Paul Jazz Fest), is always fun and surprising. The tables are very close and tight which makes for an interesting fun environment like that of the...More

It is reasonable. Decide where to sit. Usually people go to listen to the performers. if you want to visit the whole time chose a different venue. Many are there to listen to the music. it is not too loud.

I have no idea. It is basement level, but you can check Heimie's around the corner. It is still in the Hamm Building. They rent out a space for such events, but I am not sure how big. They have a website by the same name.
