This tiny jazz and blues joint is more Chicago than NoHo--a nondescript fašade fronting an equally featureless interior. The intimate, no-frills atmosphere puts all the emphasis on the music, and the club has earned a reputation for booking superb local talent and big-name artists. Former Police guitarist Andy Summers makes frequent Friday night appearances, and owner Don Randi, himself an accomplished player, regularly takes the stage. This is a musician's and music lover's club--so if you're not into the tunes, don't bother. And if you find yourself feeling a little peckish, there are 21 variations on the baked potato available for your dining pleasure.
The crowd is almost exclusively made up of jazz aficionados and musicians--casually cool and low-key hip. The place often takes on a sort of jazz in the living room vibe.
