Fodor's Expert Review Upstairs Jazz Bar and Grill

Downtown Live Music Fodor's Choice

Five nights a week, the cheerful Joel Giberovitch greets you personally near the entrance to his club, which despite the name is actually downstairs. Giberovitch loves what he does, and the constant stream of local and imported jazz musicians makes this the favored jazz hangout in the city. The eclectic menu makes a nice accompaniment to the live music—try the home-cut fries with smoky mayo or the linguine al pesto and portobello mushroom. Cover charge starts at C$5 and can go up to C$45 for big-ticket performers during Jazz Fest. The third set is free (usually around 11 pm), and other sets are also free if you sit on one of the cozy terraces.  Parking costs only C$7. Ask your server for a ticket.
