10BEST Says

Jazz & Blues Clubs: Attempts to appear seedy only partially veil this club's polished interior and yuppies and tourists often show up. The mellow blues joint offers jam sessions on Monday nights and local acts perform Sunday through Thursday. Friday and Saturday showcase national talent. A plethora of memorabilia fills the cavernous room while pool tables and a Southern kitchen that's open till midnight serving sandwiches and po' boys and jambalaya keep patrons satisfied. (If you can't make it to a show, the venue offers lunch.) Despite its touristy reputation, the club is a great place to see live blues in comfort. Parking can be found in pay lots just south or around the corner.
