One of LA's best speakeasies is also one of its best jazz clubs, with a slew of touring musicians playing standards and more at the beginning of every week, sometimes with surprise sit-ins from luminaries like Kanye collaborator Jon Brion.
This newcomer Highland Park bar's making a name for itself with live music nearly nightly, including a residency from Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker on Mondays and funky jazz on Tuesdays.

This Pasadena steakhouse also has a free Beatles cover-band night once a month, but if Blue Note-era jazz is your thing, head down on Sundays for toe-tapping from this quartet.
Every Tues-Wed and the first Thursday of the month
This old-timey bar has free old-timey swing and ragtime on Tuesday and Wednesday and an old-timey jam on the first Thursday of every month.
