We took in Dotsero on a Saturday night. Good atmosphere, but the crowd seemed a little unsophisticated when it came to jazz. After a particularly difficult riff, it's normal to applaud the musician, but this crowd wasn't slightly brain-dead. The drink prices were ridiculous ($8-$10), especially for drinks that were obviously watered down. If I go again, I'll nurse a bottled of beer or drink straight shots.
The fusion brand of jazz is OK, lots of energy, if you like that sort of thing, but for me it gets loud, monotonous, and annoying after a while. I would have liked the band to mix it up more, play a few quieter pieces, but apparently variety wasn't a part of their repertoire.
The experience didn't even come close to duplicating the magic I've experienced at other jazz clubs around the country, just another ho-hum night out. Oh, the hot wings were tasty...

How disappointing. My husband and I went to Jazz at Jack's recently and someone pickpocketed his wallet out of his back pocket while we were watching the show! I did manage to find his credit cards in the women's bathroom, after we searched the floor area. Waitresses were helpful in looking, but management is denying this could happen in their establishment!

Went to JazzyJacks as a group of about 30 for a friends Bday . It was my first time there. It was nothing like I expected. I was not a jazz fan, but am now. The band was freaking awesome, we were treated great. The club looks like its straight out of New York . I was so surprised.
