F, J, M, Z at Delancey St.-Essex St.
This venue is closed.
This Lower East Side bar, whose name is slang for "jazz purist," is a valiant attempt at resurrecting New York City's rich jazz history. Run by the same team as Fat Cat, this no-frills affair classes it up for a crowd that's less interested in shuffleboard and more attentive to gratuitous trumpet, bass, and piano solos. The relatively nondescript exposed-brick space puts all the focus on the music, decorated only with black-and-white prints of pop icons like the Beatles and Marilyn Monroe, and furnished with simple black plush couches, tables, and chairs in front of a modest carpeted stage. Although it's beer and wine only, they have twelve craft-focused brews on tap and an assortment of red, white, and sparkling wines to wash down all that smooth jazz.Show Times
