    We're big fans of: 1) historic venues, 2) classic cocktails, and 3) live jazz and standards. So this is a WIN-WIN-WIN for us -- and for you. Stop by every Friday & Saturday night for live music.

    We're big fans of REDCAT's cutting-edge dance & film, but they've also got some exciting live music -- everything from classical compositions to experimental ensembles using custom-built instruments.
