$ Desserts Recommended New

Cincinnati's only Authentic, Euro-Style Jazz Club housed in a 150-year-old, cobblestone clad, flatiron. Located at the Five-Corners district of OTR, this small, Bohemian, jazz club has great live entertainment 4 nights a week with local, national, and international artists showcasing their talents in a unique listening room with oriental rugs on the walls to absorb excess sound - creating a cozy, living room, listening experience!
NOTE: We have a full bar, wines, signature drinks, and a small, curated selection of beers. We do NOT have a kitchen, so our food menu includes only chips & salsa, cheese-its, chips, candy bars, etc. We DO have a nice assortment of desserts to choose from, such as Tiramisu & Reese's Peanut Butter Mousses Cake, Key Lime Pie, etc. :)
NOTE: Please try to be accurate when inputting your time-frame (1.5 hrs, 2 hrs, etc) for table reservations because the computer will schedule a new reservation for the table when the time is up. Thank you! :)

We do not have a kitchen. We DO have a lovely selection of decadent desserts, espresso drinks, snacks, fun non-alcoholc drinks, and a full bar, including a small bevy of curated European wines. We suggest you save room for desserts, drinks, and/or coffee after enjoying one of the many wonderful restaurants in the downtown area. Another Option: we work exclusively with Essen Vegan Kitchen, across the street, for great vegan food delivered until 9pm. Menu available upon request.
Yes, we always have a cover charge and it is usually $5, unless we have out-of-town bands, who tend to charge a little more for tickets. The cover charge is integral and necessary to help support our wonderful musicians!

My first time being there was a great experience. It was very cozy and had a really relaxed vibe. The guys playing were really good. Drinks were reasonably priced as well as the other fare. The chips and salsa were tasty. Only suggestion would be maybe add a few other snack options... maybe a cheese plate. Overall this place seemed like a little hideaway hole in the wall. I will definitely visit this place again.

It’s a great place to listen to fine jazz music. Decor was updated - looks more contemporary than it used to be. I kind of liked old historic look too but it’s OK. Better to be clear about the cover charge for band at the time of reservation. Also better to announce who plays much sooner so we can plan ahead of time too.

We loved everything about it! The atmosphere was cozy, the staff friendly, the ambiance charming. Despite being a long term resident of Cincinnati, I'd never been in. The only suggestion i would have would be to steam clean the stones on the exterior and do better publicity! Although, it's a small place, so thats a challenge.

This is a magical urban haunt. It is layered with a jazz legacy that seems to hang in the room. It always feels like you have been taken far away to a different time where small notions become important enough to turn into poetry.

I enjoyed the atmosphere. I liked that the venue was small and I love the tables that were in the venue. I plan to come back on the July 29th to see Phil Degregg. I think the waitress could have checked on me a little more often to see if I wanted my wine glass refilled. Otherwise I really enjoyed the place.

I ordered a flower iced tea. It cam in a large glass with a slice of lime but entirely too much ice. The glass was 3/4 full when the drink was gone. Since the waitress did not come over for me to order another drink for well over an hour, I sucked the ice. When I finally got to order another drink, I requested light ice. She brought my second drink with lighter ice but a smaller glass and no lime. I was able to pour the smaller drink into the larger glass that was half full of ice and it fit. So that means the two drinks were different sized drinks. But both were still $6. No consistency here. Also the bowl of potato chips were $3.50. That consisted of TWO snack size Lay's potato chips that retails for under a dollar each. That is a 75 % mark up. And I thought gas was high???? I did NOT buy the chips.
