Along with a number of other unhappy people, I heard no music that evening. We were told that Baby Jane Dexter was not feeling well and the show was cancelled. (This happened the last time I went there to hear this performer; she sang about half...continued

An evening in this room that includes a 9 piece band should give more consideration to the sound and sight lines. We struggled many times to hear the singers over horns and drums. Seating at front of room on sides limits view of singers and sound...continued

Baby Jane Dexter was wonderful -- a very moving show -- she's in strong voice and I love her choice of songs. The Metropolitan room is nicer than I remember, very warm lighting and the staff was excellent. Even the cheese platter was delicious.

Fran Leonardis, in her first solo cabaret show, performed wonderfully for a well turned out audience. Would definitely enjoy seeing her again! The friends I was with agreed.

I never know where I'm going to end up when I attend a Barb Jungr performance. Well, that isn't exactly true. I know I'm going to be mesmerised and transported to some place that I've never been before. And I know I'm going to be very happy. ...continued

It was an excellent night and didn't know that Ms. Yana Bibb was great talent! She rocked the mic and was so humble. Thus, it was a little tight with the seating but the food and drinks was great! Very special night indeed! Without hesitation, I...continued

It was wonderful and engaging...we had several guests from Italy, and they enjoyed Baby Jane's expressiveness and humor and musicality.

We had excellent service and I would highly recommend it to others.

Jillian Laurain is a wonderful entertainer. Her salute to Barbra Streisand was perfect, no camping or impersonation necessary! Her voice & her selection of rarities that Streisand herself doesn't sing in concert earned her a standing ovation!

McBroom and her musical partner Michele Brourman were stunning. Sharing the stage with easy rapport and relating warmly to a very receptive audience. Material we had not heard before and new takes on more familiar tunes. Lights & sound excellent...continued

My husband likes jazz, so I thought this would be a nice treat for his birthday. The venue is cosy, but nice, and the staff was friendly. The drinks, which were pricey ($15 for a cocktail), were not at all worth the price. They left much to be...continued

Once again, we have a fabulous show from Amanda -- new McBroom, old McBroom, current McBroom, timeless McBroom -- and much of the incredible Michele Brourman and a few other writers as well. See it. Book now. And while you're on the phone,...continued

The Joan Curto show was very good. She was entertaining and had a great voice. The only down side of the event was that the show only lasted one hour and there was a 2 drink minimum.

The Metropolitan Room is so crowded that you may feel your knees are in peril as you wait for the show to start. But it all falls away as soon as Marilyn sings. This new show is great, she swings, she crooms, she wows us. If you want to see a...continued

The new talent show was amazing. Most of them I liked. The 2 drink minimum purchase is also not bad. This place makes for a good evening out with someone special.
