We arrived one hour early (not two, as suggested) and had no trouble getting a table front and center on a Tuesday night. You'll need more time to find a parking space; Bethesda is a challenge--public parking attached to the Cheltenham apartments next door to the venue.info • Jun 12 2013 star this tip starred

I had a lovely conversation with the bartender and he made me a terrific drink even though he was very busy. The seating was comfortable and the music was great. The entrance was a little confusing but we found the line and the hostess was efficient and friendly. The women's bathroom was adequate and clean. We didn't eat there so I can't comment on the food but it looked good and seems to be on the way up in quality. It's a great option for live music without going downtown.

December 11, 2013 at 7:30pm: The Artie Shaw Orchestra
In 1954 Artie Shaw made his last public appearance as an instrumentalist when he put together a new Gramercy 5 made up of such superb modern musicians as pianist Hank Jones, guitarist Tal Farlow, bassist Tommy Potter, et al. He gave his blessing in the 1980s to an Artie Shaw Orchestra led by Dick Johnson, who led the orchestra for 25 years until his retirement in 2008. The baton has now been passed to clarinetist Matt Koza. Matt is proud to assume the position as the director of the Artie Shaw Orchestra, and after years of being inspired by Dick Johnson's virtuoso clarinet performances, he is honored to be the next to carry on Artie Shaw's legacy.
