Touted as one of Houston's best jazz clubs, this snug but comfortable space resides above the Black Labrador pub near the intersection of Richmond and Montrose. Cézanne is only open Friday and Saturday from 8:30 p.m. until midnight, but the music usually packs the place to capacity as patrons line the walls, bar and dozen tables; the grand piano makes a natural centerpiece for the room. The cover charge is automatically added to your bar tab, and guests are required to purchase at least one drink.

With its ivy-covered walls, Cezanne seems more suited to some leafy university town in the Northeast than to the sprawling, swampy Bayou City. But those willing to seek out its cozy quarters above the Black Labrador Pub near Richmond and Montrose will find a cozy spot for a date night, a superb listening room to appreciate the occult art of acoustic jazz -- somewhat underground these days, but very much alive -- or both. For more than 20 years, Cezanne has hosted top regional names... More »
Everyone has a front-row seat at Cezanne, since the bar holds only 150 people. Upscale without being stuffy, the club's intimate setting makes it the perfect place to take in local jazz favorites such as David Caceres and Sebastian Whittaker, as well as national acts. (Joshua Redman made his Houston debut at the club in 1993, though he's so big-time now that Cezanne might not see him again.) Performances usually sell out quickly for the bigger names, so plan to get your tickets early. More »
Cezanne Sure, there are more glamorous spots to catch jazz in this town. You can delight in the sights of open-backed, little black dresses and power players at spots like Scott Gertner's Skybar or Sambuca. But jazz has always been about the music. And traditional, straight-ahead fans have always flocked to tiny rooms to listen to serious players. Tucked up above the Black Labrador, Cezanne is hardly noticeable to nonfans, but there it sits, home to local and statewide cats such as Kellye... More »
Though being able to sit on a musician's lap as he plays does not necessarily a great live local-music venue make, fantastic sound and a hospitable atmosphere do (we're talking about a city that is not Los Angeles or New York and where local musicians need that friendly face to turn to for work). Cezanne is the place. Under the artistic stewardship of local pianist Bob Henschen, the tiny hideaway has become a bunker for Houston's jazz pros. From the legendary late piano virtuoso Dave Catney... More »
The only place in Houston where live jazz is the purpose, not an after thought. Different artists perform each Friday and Saturday night. Each time I have been, the music tends toward the more traditional (Miles, Coltrane, Brubeck...). A small, intimate setting with seating for about 10-15 at the bar, and then another 60ish at tables. A very reasonable cover - $10 gets you some of the best live music you can find in Houston.
