Close Up 2

Opening Friday with free hors d' oeuvres and wine from the full bar, Chicago-originated CU2 is a ducked-off blue/ black/ silver-themed jazz lounge kicking off with two live shows by jazz pianist Mark Adams, who's played with legends like Roy Ayers and even Mary J. Blige on her "What's The 411" tour, which she ditched after discovering it was actually just an obsolete directory assistance service.
