What a special Tuesday treat with old friends in an intimate setting with jazz musicians who knew how to "show off". Very generous portions in a soul food space. Loved my fish. Friends loved their chicken. Can't wait to visit Detroit again for an evening...More

Apparently this is the world´s oldest jazz bar. This place is very iconic. Really good fried chicken and the most amazing entertainment and music. One of the best nights we have had in a long time.

Known as the oldest jazz club in the world. Amazing little joint. Intimate space with live jazz and fantastic food. The staff are super friendly and make you feel like a VIP. Love, love, love their food, which keeps me coming back.
