As the name suggests, local artists and bands begin coolly churning out jazz in the dining room around 7 every Friday and Saturday night.
If you're dining any other night, don't be surprised to catch a little music coming from the third level of the restaurant in the Martini Room, an area resembling a mini-nightclub. Soak up the melodies performed here every evening, as well as one of the club's signature martinis. Be sure to grab some friends for a quick game of pool on one of the seven hand-carved mahogany tables.
