Places to get your Jazz on...Mama!

So i don't know about you but music is in my soul..if my cat daddy wants to take me to a jazz joint then it's certain to be a magical evening....lol......sadly many of the new places around town have shut their doors but there are still a few spots in the city that are popping..and a great opportunity for the grown folks to mix and mingle....here's my fave top Jazz spots :

get your checkbook ready as their is usually a cover charge..but if Joey Sommerville is there you will get a special treat..and they bring some of the top acts in the city..dinner ain't cheap either but fellas if you want to impress a certain special lady...well look no further than this first class dinner club
