Riverfront Times' Description

Jazz at the Bistro is the main performance venue for the nonprofit Jazz St. Louis, but it's also a classic jazz club that frequently appears on lists of the best of its type in the country. A low-key, medium-size room where you can literally dine with the performers, the Bistro features multiple night stands by some of the hottest names in instrumental and vocal jazz -- and complements the music with a delicious menu and a tempting wine list. Performers rave about the good acoustics; patrons will be pleased with the equally good sightlines.
