How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Ok it is a Jazz bar but the music is something between evergreen melodies, cabaret, a bit of swing, etc... very much on the rhytmic side (not sure if this is to be considerd jazz-y), even though the differnt instruments sometimes do solos on their own (as it is typical for jazz). Terese has a good voice, exceptional presence on stage and is funny! She tells a story about most of the songs (which I loved! It was entertainment and education in one). The band is very fantastic and they do work well togther. We went for the first set at 8pm and we stayed for the second one at 10 PM (minimum charge required for the second one) and btw the food was unexpectedly excellent for a club (4 Tapas selections for 2 is on my recommendation list) If I have tomention a negative - seems like the event was not well attended (which is kind of a pity given the good performance) but oh yah! you can totally find that to your advantage.. no people to elbow around. I would consider going back in few months...

Help others enjoy a great night out
