Fodor's Review

Opened in 2013 to much fanfare, the center is devoted entirely to jazz. The debut week alone saw performances by McCoy Tyner, Joshua Redman, Regina Carter, Chick Corea, and Savion Glover, among others. Walk by and the street-level glass walls will make you feel as if you're inside; head indoors and the acoustics will knock your socks off. Celebrated artists Sandow Birk and Elyse Pignolet created the lobby murals. Grab dinner at South, a rustic-Mexican restaurant developed by Charles Phan, the acclaimed chef of the Slanted Door; during showtime, you can listen to the musicians playing in the adjacent auditorium.
