By far the best. They get the biggest names in the industry from London and Africa (Congolese drummers!). Obviously local talent is showcased as well.\r

Drinks are cheap and strong. At the door, Davis is the coolest guy you'll ever

I am a regular here because they are everything a jazz club should be - dark, subterranean,and serious about serving up great music (and drinks) at a reasonable price . Mondays they have jazz at 7:30 and open mic at 9 - Tuesdays though

Pros: Great jazz, friendly vibe

Cons: no kitchen (but you can order in from Great Waters upstairs)

Back in the day Tuesdays at the artist quarter was happening...even at the previous 2 locations..there was a mixture of musicians and people, the night was headed by a killer hammond player named Billy Holloman. Those days seem to be over

Pros: Nice spot!

Cons: Where is the Jazz?

.

A very low key place in the basement but has a good atmosphere. Friendly staff.

Don't go there if you want to talk rather than listen to the music..... please

Pros: Quiet and attentive audience

Cons: No food on site but can be ordered and brought in

Some of the best jazz acts in the world along with some local favorites play this old haunt on a regular basis. Dave the bartender is always fun to chat with and sometimes will cut you a deal. Much more relaxing than other jazz places in

I frequented this place in college while taking a Jazz History course and I continue to do so to this day. I took my soon to be wife here on our first "official" date. It was absolutely spectacular! From the doorman - not just any

Pros: Live Music, Ambiance, Value, Service, Location, Crowd, EVERYTHING!

Cons: .........

Let's face it, those that have lived in Saint Paul long enough know that the nightlife scene just isn't as happening as Minneapolis. Enter the Artist Quarter: their mission, to take fabulous jazz artists, as well as students from nearby schools, to give them real experience performing. From blues to jazz to folk, this is music.

PROS: great entertainment by some fine restaurants
CONS: may be hard to find for out of towners

When we were dating my wife took me to this club as a surprise for my birthday. When i looked from outside i didnt like it at all. But once i entered it was full of liveliness and i loved the music and the crowd. After that day we have visited lot of times and everytime i went there are lot of new musicians and i have never been bored. Its the perfect place for the guys and gals who love dancing to jazz music.

PROS: Great music
CONS: None

This place is unique. From it's small, almost hidden tucked away entrance to the diverse crowd it almost aways attracts. Within it's walls however, there are stories and talent enough to go around. What is the best spot for real jazz in

Pros: Inexpensive, Free parking, Romantic and Intimate

Cons: Smoking

This club is underground in every way, but once you find them you're sure to come back for more. The musicians are masters of their stage and bring in guest vocalists and musicians all the time. You really can't find a jazz club like this anywhere else in the midwest. Check out Tuesday nights for a good time!

The Artists' Quarter is a great place to catch top-notch local and national jazz acts, and its new location makes it easy to add to a night on the town.
Their extensive new wine list should please most guests and I've received decent
