Venue Info

This Water street live music hub is known for great food and great jazz. Since 1995, the American eatery has been a local staple, serving lunch and dinner daily in addition to acting as a functional event space. Housed in a narrow brick building with bright blue doors, the dining room features Virginia-inspired murals extending across rust-colored walls, hanging paper lanterns, and a wide, protruding formica bar. You can order snacks and small plates like portobello mushroom fries or black bean egg rolls, while sipping cocktails at the bar, or you can stay for dinner, and feast on an eclectic menu boasting everything from bison burgers and crab cake sandwiches to Harissa pork loin cutlets (all of which are typically served with a side of live jazz). And if that's not your cup of tea, you can stop by for a beer and some Wednesday night karaoke, instead.
