Ok so this place.... How do I say it. It's a dump. But I mean that in the most charming, loving, and respectful way. They have amazing music, great service and attentive bar staff, a cozy and intimate atmosphere, as well as a great patio!...More

I love good jazz, and good jazz is hard to come by, except in New Orleans or New York City. I was delightfully surprised to find some great jazz here last weekend! I can't wait until my next trip to Indy to go back!!

The place has been open for years and a great place to go to listen to some good music. The place needs a little updating. I would go again!

We went on a Friday night at about 10:30, where there was a $5 cover to listen to the live Latin music. (There are different live bands all the time.) It was chilly outside, but they had outdoor heaters. We could still hear the music,...More

Nah, it's a pretty small place. Just a stage for the band and a row of small tables by the bar. Totally worth a visit though!
