Love this spot for cocktails and music! Jesse Barry and the Jam always puts on a top notch show, and great vocals! Tressa is usually on site and helping out. Fantastic bar service and Skull , the door man, is a great guy too.

I wish I didn't have to give this place any stars. I was waiting outside for my date to show up so we could dance on Mardi Gras and the owner kicked me out because I was waiting on the public sidewalk too long and I hadn't paid the $2 cover charge. Don't let their Soulful Jazz look fool you these are not folks they are some uppity snobs.

Tressa scouted and acted on our friend who was being pursued by a VERY sketchy person. She recognized and acted on easily recognizable but often overlooked pushy tactics by a super creep. She (the owner) ultimately asked him to leave and made sure all of our group were safely in an uber before leaving. One hundred stars for being a classy, protective, and ethical bar owner. Tressas gets one million stars

Good music brought us in, but when the band ended...this place cleared out and we were left sipping our drinks in an empty bar. Some what weird.
