The young lady singer puts on a good show. The pianist however, is spectacular! Unfortunately, my experience there turned into a sad event when I went over the price list the next day and realized we were cheated out of our change by our waitress....More

Mr Tipples is an unexpectedly great spot to hear live music. There's a small stage surrounded by tables for 2-4 people, a bar towards the back of the space, and a little elevated area near the bar where there are 3 couches and a 'lounge'...More

Very nice place with every good music but unfortunately sound system is very poor, so you cannot listen to the music, just all the people yelling. Tourist trap :-(

Great spot for jazz/blues music (no cover) and craft cocktails. Like the intimacy of this place yet very casual and easy atmosphere about it. It tends to fill up around live music performance times, so get there early. Sometimes dancing even breaks out in front...More

Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.
