Catalina Bar & Grill is one of Los Angeles' top jazz clubs, even if it's housed in a decidedly non-glamorous red-brick edifice that looks like a generic Hollywood office building. Once you're inside, though, after entering through the garage in back, the spacious room is much more inviting, with tables decked out in elegant white tablecloths pressed up against a low stage in front of a red velvet curtain. The walls are tastefully decorated with paintings and photos of legendary jazz musicians, and the landmark venue has hosted some of the biggest names in traditional, mainstream jazz, including Chick Corea, Ella Fitzgerald, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Scott, Pharoah Saunders, Jane Monheit, Roy Hargrove, Carmen McRae, Joe Zawinul, Joshua Redman, the Marsalis brothers, and an impressive variety of stellar Carters (Ron, Betty, Benny and even Wonder Woman's Lynda). It's a great place to hear music, although the drinks, admission, valet parking and cover minimums can be quite pricey. The kitchen serves similarly expensive entrees, including trout almondine and shrimp scampi pasta, but most visitors come for the live music instead of the food. All ages. Full bar.
