This 30-year-old institution continues to showcase live jazz seven nights a week from its discreet basement premises behind an unmarked door on Lots Road, & non-members can enjoy the sessions
so long as they are ordering dinner with their drinks. The menu offers straightforward pickings, from Japanese-style prawns via grilled calf’s liver with new potatoes & a tomato & red onion
salad to berry crème brûlée. Prices aren’t exactly cheap, but the quality of the music & the atmospheric setting (murals of jazz greats, old tables clustered around the stage) makes any outlay
more than worth it. Be warned: boozy chatter during performances is frowned upon, so sit tight & enjoy the sounds. Annual membership will set you back £95, although it guarantees priority
booking at the weekend.
