Jazz at Pearl's  
256 Columbus Ave (at Broadway) 
San Francisco, CA 94133

"1930s supper club ambience, top jazz acts, and delicious food make
this legendary Jazz Club your perfect getaway for a romantic date, a
night of world class jazz and a little trip back in time!
Jazz at Pearl's features award winning French and Spanish Cuisine
before the first show for a limited amount of tables. Just voted Top
30 Club Worldwide by Conde Nast Travel Magazine and Restaurant of the
Month by it's great to see that this real jazz concert venue
in San Francisco stimulates all your senses!"

"Jazz at Pearl's - San Francisco Restaurant of the Month
from James Martin
Apr 13 2004
Hot Jazz on a Foggy Night in San Francisco
Jazz at Pearl's Reloaded

"It's been a year since the owner Pearl Wong decided to retire and
close the legendary North Beach jazz hangout called Pearl's.

But not to worry: Singer Kim Nalley and husband Steve Sheraton grabbed
the reins of the venerable club a year ago, and after a recent visit,
I can tell you Pearl's is back: stronger, classier, and more enticing
than ever. Sheraton sold his movie theater and jazz club in
Switzerland to rescue Pearls and transform it into an elegant 30's
style jazz nightclub. He did the right thing.

But what's the food like? I mean, expectations run fairly low when you
think, "I'm going to a jazz performance and I'll just catch a bite at
the club..."

But we weren't disappointed. We took advantage of a special deal you
can get from reserving on Pearl's web site: A three course meal and
tickets to the Monday night big band jazz performance for thirty five
bucks a person, not including beverage. "
"This is one of the best jazz venues in the city. The live jams last
until 1:30am nightly. Ribs and chicken are served, too; they run from
$5 to $20."

Swing 46 Jazz and Supper Club
349 W. 46th St
New York, NY 10036  
(212) 262-9554
"Swing is a nightly affair at this Theater District jazz and supper
club (supper not required). Music is live nightly except Monday, when
a deejay takes over, and runs the gamut from big band to boogie-woogie
to jump blues. Do not miss Vince Giordano and His Nighthawks if
they're on the bill, especially if sharp-dressed Casey McGill is
singing and strumming his ukulele too. The Harlem Renaissance
Orchestra is another great choice. Even first-timers can join in the
fun, as free swing lessons are offered Wednesday through Saturday at
9:15pm. No jeans or sneakers."

"For every night, as well as special nights, gracious dining is the
forte of Barcelona-Chandler.
Step into a sumptuous world with Mediterranean accents and enjoy fine
continental cuisine at Barcelona-Chandler. Then tap your foot or step
onto the dance floor with some of the valley's best live musicians.
From tapas, to elegant entrees, to mouthwatering desserts -
Barcelona-Chandler's executive chef knows how to please you. While
away the evening with fine food, beverages and attentive service."
"The Scene
This attractive restaurant with a misted patio, comfy couches and two
separate bars bills itself as a supper club. When 10 o'clock rolls
around, watch out: tables are removed from the pillar-rimmed,
fresco-painted rotunda to make way for strobe-lit dancing, and the
formerly boomer-oriented Barcelona transforms into a fashionable
The Food
The reasonably priced southwestern food comes in large portions. When
it's not overcooked, the bacon-wrapped shrimp appetizer with green
chile and jalapeno hollandaise can be tasty. Ditto for a tame but
flavorful version of carne adovada. The crispy pizza (particularly the
shrimp and artichoke-topped Mediterranean) is a great value, and save
room for a remarkably sophisticated cheesecake made with creme fraiche
instead of sour cream."

"This east valley spot is a supper club, nightclub and family
restaurant rolled into one."
"Barcelona is a supper club that provides entertainment after about 8
p.m. on most evenings.
*	All items at Barcelona are a la carte. Salad does not come with the meal."

"Barcelona in Chandler was a nice choice for a romantic dinner for
just the two of us. The Crab, Spinach and Artichoke Dip was enough for
two people to share, but we also tried the Peppers Stuffed with Shrimp
and Chorizo which were very good, but not large enough a portion for
two. For entrees we enjoyed the Petite Filet with Shrimp, and the
Paella Pescador (seafood paella), which is one of their specialties.
We topped of the delicious meal at Barcelona with two desserts a warm
chocolate tart (like a small souffle) with chocolate ice cream, and a
seasonal berry cobbler with vanilla ice cream. We shouldn't have, but
both desserts were excellent!

For some reason Barcelona doesn't serve bread with the meal (even if
you ask). We had been to Barcelona before, and, although the food was
consistently good, we were very unhappy with our service the first
time. This visit was much better. We will definitely try Barcelona in
Chandler again.

After dinner, Barcelona turns into one of the hottest spots for
entertainment in the East Valley. Fine nights per week (not on Mondays
or Sundays) they move out the tables in front of the stage, and you
can enjoy live music and dancing to various styles--guitar, jazz, 70s
and 80s music, R&B, and more."

Reed's Jazz & Supper Club
9901 Capital of Texas Highway N., Building 1, Suite 150 

Conviviality, refined dining and a retro flair 
By Dale Rice 
American-Statesman Restaurant Critic 
Thursday, January 30, 2003

"Three women stood at one of the tall, round tables not far from the
front door, closing out the work week in style. One of them, a blonde
in a tight, low-cut sweater, had a broad smile and an infectious laugh
that ensnared a long-haired man who put his arm around her and joined
the rollicking conversation.

They blended in easily with the loud, shouder-to-shoulder crowd in the
bar, which was packed at 8 p.m. on a recent Friday, even though the
musicians were still carrying in their instruments.

Up a long, curving staircase, the mood was more sedate, as patrons
dined on steak and seafood. But the jovial ambiance was still present:
Conversations extended from one table to another as people greeted
patrons they knew and were introduced to those they didn't.

That vibe represents a grand resurrection of the space formerly
occupied by Reed Clemons' Mezzaluna restaurant in the Gateway shopping

Now Reed's Jazz & Supper Club, it appears to be a hip spot for the over-40 crowd."

Kit Kat Lounge and Supper Club

"Editorial Rating: Recommended 
The Scene
Candlelight flickers and club music throbs at this energetic
nightspot, where white-leather banquettes fill with smartly dressed
couples and groups sipping specialty martinis. Classic movies are
projected onto the walls; every so often, the lights come up and
patrons are treated to an impromptu performance by one of the "Kit Kat
The Food
The eclectic menu takes comfort food for a global ride:
Asian-influenced fare like sushi rolls and seared tuna with ginger are
offered alongside salads, pastas and steak plates. Favorite starters
include coconut crab cakes with dill tartar and calamari with zesty
orange-tomato-ginger dipping sauce. Coconut also stars on the
signature Big Daddy shrimp--four deep-fried butterflied crustaceans
dredged in coconut and served with pineapple-horseradish sauce.
Crusted delectably with pumpkin seeds, flaky mahi mahi is paired with
serrano-cilantro cream sauce; sweet-tart red-onion marmalade makes the
Top Hat Tender a standout steak.

"Just take a look at the lineup of colorful garnishes on the bar at
the Kit Kat Club: watermelon, cherries wrapped in oranges, pineapple
spiked with tiny umbrellas and more, and you'll get the feel for this
high-spirited bar and supper club. The decor borrows equally from a
fifties diner and Urban Outfitters and the bar from a psychedelic
dream, as more martinis than you know what to do with are offered.
Take in the atmosphere as exquisitely dressed drag queens periodically
emerge to sing karaoke standards.

The menu is as funkadelic as the decoration and drinks. The appetizers
offer everything from seafood, Japanese and Indian treats while the
fun-named entrees like "Big Daddy Shrimp Goes Tropical" and "Hands Off
My Halibut" give diners a wide variety of lovingly-prepared and
inspired dishes such as hand-stuffed asparagus ravioli or a more
traditional pork tenderloin accessorized with a tropical fruit

Whether you want a full meal or a fun drink in Boys' Town, you'll
definitely want to join the Kit Kat Club. (Claire Zulkey) "

Review: Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club 
By Phil Vettel

"Funny, but sometimes life isn't enough of a drag. And so when you're
in the mood for some high-camp entertainment -- with a decent meal
thrown into the mix -- there's the Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club, which
made its North Side debut late last year.

Kit Kat is the supper club reconsidered. There's an updated cocktail
list touting such supper-club classics as whiskey sours and brandy
Alexanders, but also a "martinis to go" list of 25 elixirs, most of
them in electric colors and exactly one of them a true martini. The
menu has its retro moments as well, offering spinach salad, meat loaf
and the like, but most of the food here has a contemporary feel. "
"The first stateside branch of this Puerto Vallarta-based chain is
chic, with long white leather sofas lining the exposed brick walls and
photos of Hollywood stars hanging above stone tabletops. Upwards of 75
flavored martinis are offered -- including such kitschy combinations
as cherry Coke, lime drop, and banana split (vodka, white chocolate
and banana liqueurs, and a splash of vanilla) -- plus retro cocktails
like Rob Roys and gimlets. Executive chef Kathy Kathy executes
classics including pork chops and applesauce, Caesar salad, and a
12-ounce strip steak served with rice and snow peas; she also goes
eclectic with offerings like coconut crab cakes served with dill
tartar sauce and mango ketchup, savory pumpkin-seed-encrusted
mahimahi, and asparagus-and-Brie-stuffed ravioli, all artistically
presented. Thursday is Pennies From Heaven night: order two entrees
and your bottle of wine costs one red cent. Live cabaret Tuesday
through Sunday features impersonators (both male and female) of
Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, Eartha Kitt, and others"

Chord On Blues
106 S. 1st Ave., Saint Charles
Tel: (630) 513-0074 
Fax: (630) 513-0096
"One half blues club and one half supper club, Chord on Blues may not
be everything to everyone, but it sure comes close. The two-level
dining room is arranged for maximum impact: an 18-foot by 30-foot
curtained stage sits on the far end; white linened tables for
sophisticated dining fill the main area; and a raised rear section
suits those who prefer to stay a little further from the action.
Exposed brick walls, a loft ceiling and posh bar area transport you
from the Fox River Valley to the Mississippi Delta for big-name blues
acts like KoKo Taylor and The Fabulous Thunderbirds. The three leather
banquettes at the back of the main floor provide a perfect view of the
room for dining, drinking or both.

Chord on Blues' menu includes steakhouse standards with a little Cajun
thrown in. While the average entree will cost you $13-$25, sandwiches,
starting around $7, are available for diners suffering the money
blues. The dining room accommodates up to 150 people seated for
dinner, so seating is generally not a problem. The cover charge
varies, but expect to pay $10-$12 per person, whether you buy one beer
or a 16-ounce steak dinner.

The attached The Grille bar offers a more casual atmosphere, complete
with darts and pool. Formerly The Corner Pocket sports bar, The Grille
is where locals head for a cheap beer and a game of eight-ball. You
can't hear the music in here, but The Grille's menu features the best
of Chord on Blues' steakhouse offerings, with burgers and pizza to
boot. Weather permitting, The Grille's large outdoor terrace serves as
a beer garden, perfect for wallowing in the blues if you can?t afford
the cover charge for the show."

"You?ll feel like you?re in: This club brings a Bohemian, East Village
kind of vibe to the neighborhood. With talent like rapper Diverse
coming from the North Side, maybe it?s time for a Rogers Park

Music genre: From hip-hop to live jazz, you?ll find it here. Local
hip-hop groups like Organic Mind Unit and the Abstract Giants have hit
the stage, and a vast array of local mixers, like DJ White Russian,
provide much more than your average dopey dinner music.

Beyond the dance floor: Morseland specializes in casual American fare,
especially seafood, and offers a late-night menu after 11 p.m.,
available until close. The bar is stocked with micro-brewed beers like
Bell?s Oberon (which is on tap), affordable wine and specialty
cocktails, like a mean caipirihina and the Mo Mojito, which features
Appleton dark rum. There?s also a restored pool table in the back
that?s free on a first-come, first-served basis."
"With its oak and slate bar, lofted ceiling, and variety of nooks and
crannies in which to get lost, it provides the perfect respite for
those looking to drink a few hours away. The food, however, needs
work. On a recent visit, my girlfriend and I started with mojitos and
the antipasto platter. The mojitos were marvelous: a handful of
crushed mint, not too much sugar, and the right amount of soda. The
antipasto, too, was superb -- as well as enormous -- containing ham,
blue cheese, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, cucumber, and
mozzarella. It would easily have fed four people. Not so good were the
chipotle buffalo shrimp, overfried and lacking any discernible
chipotle flavor. Without the spice, the accompanying blue cheese had
nothing to complement and was completely unnecessary. As disappointing
as the shrimp were, the entrees were a disaster. Though filled with
brie, pear, and sourdough stuffing, which sounds great in theory, my
girlfriend's tough, leathery pork chop was overcooked the point of
tastelessness. (To be fair, the dish did have an important redeeming
quality: the purple mashed potatoes that came with it. These were
dense, buttery, and delicious, not to mention fun to look at.) The
disappointment continued with the barbecued Coho salmon, which failed
on multiple levels. The meager portion was bad enough, but worse were
the flavorless sauce, the caramelized onion topping, and the salmon's
strong fishy smell. We might have overlooked all of this, but the
clacking of pool balls a scant five feet away deepened our irritation.
Here's a suggestion: if people are having dinner, do not seat them
near an active pool table. Service was otherwise thoughtful and
unhurried, and the Morseland is a very comfortable place, but for a
meal that can cost you upwards of $100 with booze and tip, the food
needs some amplification."

Pearl  (not "authentic", but very succesful)
One Ocean Drive Miami Beach
Miami, FL 33139 
Telephone: 001 305 538 1231
"The Scene
The ambience of this furiously trendy restaurant/nightclub makes
wretched excess a study in abject modesty. Imagine a large,
low-ceilinged room done entirely in orange and white, with polka-dot
tables, a wall of bubbling water, eerie purple lighting and champagne
bar surrounded by chairs that resemble giant, mutant Martian
seashells. Late nights, Pearl becomes prime territory for the local
beautiful people, who dance cheek to chic until the wee hours. Service
is tinged by South Beach's infamous 'tude and isn't terribly competent
The Food
If the cuisine here isn't quite as exciting as the decor, who's going
to notice? Starters of fire-roasted shrimp with poblano chili syrup
and tuna tartare-mango-tobiko "parfait" are better than day boat
scallops with salty saffron risotto and bland vanilla-lime
vinaigrette. Sushi is also on the menu. Fancifully named Duck, Duck,
Goose and chocolate-banana bread pudding read more interesting than
they taste."
"Furiously trendy restaurant come nightclub that?s blasted modesty out
into space. It?s a large, low-ceilinged room done in orange and white,
with polka-dot tables, bubbling water walls, deep purple lighting and
a champagne bar surrounded by giant seashell chairs. Of course it?s
prime Beautiful People turf, full of the rich-thin-hip and waiters
waiting for better things. But you don?t come here for service you
come here for show. Try fire-roasted shrimp or ?duck, duck, goose? and
martinis that are the best in town."
"This is what happens when two heavyweights in their fields -- a chef
and a designer -- join heads. Step inside and you'll feel like you
just walked off the beach and into another dimension. Clever lights
give patrons a fresh tanned look, and the polka dots everywhere impart
a "bubbly" feeling. The main bar is a giant seashell surrounded by
seashell chairs, or you can sit in the comfortable white couches
arranged for intimate conversations. The music is "chill ambient" and
not too loud. An American-style seafood menu is the perfect
gastronomical complement to the atmosphere. Pearl is known as the spot
of choice for Miami's most beautiful women.

What not to miss: The shell-shaped champagne bar."

Speakeasy Supper Club
1401 W. Devon, Chicago
Tel: (773) 338-0600

"The folks behind The Room have managed to take an old concept and
turn it into something any generation would enjoy. A flashy black and
red canopy greets you at the entrance, beyond which lies a slick
dining room that summons you in. The menu offering tapas-sized
portions, including appetizers such as mussels, escargot and
crabcakes, as well as dishes like beef tenderloin and lamb chops with
Cajun sweet potatoes. Speakeasy has a BYOB policy?a huge money
saver?as well as a free parking lot. "
"Proprietor Jody Andre has made this potentially too-large space feel
like a hidden gem. She sticks to the tried-and-true formula she used
at Tomboy and the Room: hardwood floors, roughed-up brick walls with
minimal art (here, light boxes with portraits of Marilyn Monroe and
James Dean), and an eclectic American menu that offers more appetizers
and half courses than entrees. Most dishes are frilly takeoffs on
classics -- executive chef Tiffanie Hicks replaces beef with ostrich
in her version of a Wellington; a snap pea salad freshens up
mint-and-pistachio-crusted lamb chops; and a generous Caesar salad
(with a respectable anchovy-laden dressing) gets some crunch from
deep-fried oysters. The permanent BYO policy should seem familiar as

Paula Jeans Supper Club

"Paula Jean's supper club brings to Long Island American Culture and
Cuisine. Our menu is a combination of traditional Cajun/Creole and an
eclectic blend of tastes with a Southern accent.

A place to come out for an evening with lively food and live music to
match. We are the premier Supper Club on Long Island, presenting the
very best local bands, top regional acts, and national recording
artists in the blues area."

Maxie's Supper Club

Maxie's Supper Club and Oyster Bar
By: Peggy Haine, The Ithaca Times
April 14, 2004

"Maxie's Supper Club and Oyster Bar has always been a party, spilling
over with enthusiastic patrons, good local music, great food and grog,
and fun. Chick and Dewi Evans take a smart approach to the art and the
theater of the restaurant business, and their place has recently - and
intelligently - grown to accommodate both the happy crowds and the
busy kitchen staff without sacrificing a thing in the way of food,
service, or ambiance.

On a recent visit, we were happy to discover our old favorites still
on the menu, the same top-quality New Orleans-style fresh raw oysters
on the half shell nestled around a string of silvery Mardi Gras beads;
that most comforting of southern comfort foods, shrimp and grits with
tasso sauce and smoky andouille sausage; a good selection of fish
prepared in imaginative ever-changing ways; meaty crab cakes; crusty
oyster or fried green tomato po' boys; and late-night small dinners,
perfect for satisfying those after-theater munchies. But you have
probably sampled most of that."

"Maxie's, located at 635 W. State Street, is a party any night, but
particularly on Tuesdays and Sundays, when bands carry on. The kitchen
is open for dinner until midnight, later on weekends. They don't
accept reservations, but you can call 272-4136 for information."

"It's the supper club that other supper clubs look up to. Fusing Asian
mysticism with French elegance, Buddha Bar is class defined. A giant
Buddha dominates the floor, where small tables are clustered in a
tight but comfortable arrangement. The bar -- where cocktails known to
all Parisians are mixed -- is shaped like a dragon, whose fierce head
towers over the end. The lighting is subdued and very tasteful. And
the ambient music is world-class, inspiring a series of best-selling
eclectic compilation CDs. Dine on delicious Asian dishes with a French
infusion and everything will take care of itself.

Toronto, Ontario 
193 Bloor Street W 
Telephone: 004 169 297 169
Hours:Tue - Sat 11am - 2am
"Sexy new glass and steel structure housing a restaurant and champagne
lounge, although the designer crowd who frequent it sip everything
from Manhattans to Martinis in their Manolos. It?s the scene spot of
the moment and if Sex and the City were shot in Toronto instead of
Manhattan it would certainly have made a guest appearance. Like Hotel
on Peter Street, the idea is a swanky boutique hotel lobby for the
style set, and the design does just that. The front lounge has glaring
white sofas that somehow stay clean, while suede and chrome bar stools
line an impressive under-lit onyx bar counter. Something to behold.
Mirrors behind the bar and a gorgeous hand blown chandelier hanging
nearby continue the theme, as do the arty objects in the bathrooms.
It?s not all about style though. Chef Trevor Wilkinson?s ?Urban
Comfort? menu adds tasty substance: exquisite versions of lobster
ravioli and chicken & porcini potpie proving most popular; while the
dashing bar staff mix an array of potent cocktails every bit as
glittering as the guests. Why not lobby for Lobby. We do."
"If Toronto is the NYC of Canada, then Lobby is 21 Club, the place
where the stars cut loose while attending the Toronto Film Festival.
The posh atmosphere outweighs expediency here, with a décor that
redefines extravagant. Ultra-plush white sofas greet diners, who make
a mandatory stop to feel the suede and chrome barstools. From the
ceiling hangs an ornate hand-blown chandelier that resembles a drove
of snakes. The menu is avant-garde Italian and features the world's
fanciest (and priciest) macaroni and cheese.

What not to miss: The Kobe burger. Yes, it's made with the much-storied Kobe beef."

"The hippest joint down under overlooks Parliament House and features
mismatched antique leather couches that work very well with the
interior design. Unique to the Melbourne Supper Club is a friendly
atmosphere. The seating is arranged for optimal conversation and the
jazz that plays in the background is soft enough to rule out screaming
communication. The bar has an old feel, which is part of its charm, a
perfect place to light up a cigar and peruse the encyclopedia-like
wine list. The food is simple, with meatballs and smoked salmon
bruschettas being perennial favorites. Coming here for a late-night
date is a must; romance and class just ooze from the place.

What not to miss: The impressive wine list"
"Upstairs from the ever-popular European cafe-restaurant, the
Melbourne Supper Club is a perfect post-theater venue. Deep leather
lounges and a giant circular window that looks directly onto the
beautifully lit Parliament House buildings make this bar a place to
idle, smoke a cigar, or dwell over a bottle of your favorite wine. "
"If you want something classy in the wee small hours, this is it. This
above-street bar oozes style, with its worn leather sofas and chaise
longues in an expansive but intimate wood-panelled room. There's
something classically European about the space, which looks out over
Parliament through its circular window.
Have a glance through the book-length wine list and order some of the
small but satisfying dishes, such as the ever-popular meatballs or
smoked salmon bruschetta."
"Wonderful woody long room full of bulging couches, battered armchairs
and weathered floorboards that will make you want to light up that
Cohiba. And you can, for Cuba is just one of the flavours round here.
Fine wines and snacks are served in old-world ambience and a jazzy
background score bubbles under. The design clincher though is a huge
semicircular window looking out over Parliament House."

Melbourne Pubs Review

Soho Supper Club
Istanbul, Turkey 
Meselik Sk 11/12 Taksim
Telephone: 0212 245 0152

"Hip supper club in Taksim that draws the rich and beautiful for fine
drinks and Italian and French food. Cosmos and Martinis seem to be
pretty popular on the cocktail front and you should expect to pay
highly for them, but then you do get to drink them next to local TV
stars and models. If posing is not your thing stick to the street
bars. DJs spin clubby sounds most nights and the place gets as crowded
as Old Compton Street in London?s Soho on weekends. Perhaps that?s
where they got their name from."

"The Turkish metropolis is quickly gaining ground as a world-class
party city, and Soho Supper Club proves it. It's the place to see and
be seen, a virtual catwalk for the rich and ostentatious. The DJs here
are venerated like gods, spinning out the hippest club tunes. Although
the clientele consists of the region's elite (to the point that it
feels like you're brushing shoulders with top TV or music stars), most
of the patrons are friendly and far from arrogant.

What not to miss: The dizzying array of martinis." 

Obi Supper Lounge 
Tokyo, Japan
"The Shibuya district of Tokyo -- the nest of partiers and high
rollers -- screams style in certain venues. With a jet-black décor
splashed with bright greens and tan, Obi can be described as "chill
with a Japanese twist." Relax on the plush sofas or be among the
trendsters sitting at the wine glass stem tables. A video wall gives
an otherwise static milieu some movement. The food menu is simple,
offering fancy appetizers and souped-up classics like pizza, pasta and
salad. In the end, it's all about the pretty, giggly Japanese women
who come to be seen.

What not to miss: The self-proclaimed biggest mirror ball in Tokyo."

Bed Supperclub
Bangkok, Thailand
"Step inside this oversized sci-fi pod and it's like 2001: A Space
Odyssey with a two-drink minimum. Bed is a chill, futuristic and
trendy supper club like no other. The minimalist white décor serves as
a canvas for different ambient lighting, artsy video projections, and
performances by DJs and chefs. It's called Bed because that's where
you dine: impossibly long mattresses line the walls and you eat on a
sleek bed tray. After a delicious meal of Mediterranean dishes infused
with Thai colors, patrons take to a small dance floor and sway to
trance, house and reggae.

What not to miss: On weekends, a surprise four-course meal is served
to diners and is followed by some mystery entertainment. "

Request for Answer Clarification by adrianb1967-ga on 30 May 2005 02:07 PDT
Thanks for the quick and excellant response.  My concept involves a
real themed 'theatre-type auditoruims' Do you know of any such venues?

Clarification of Answer by adiloren-ga on 30 May 2005 07:10 PDT
You mentioned the Black Orchid and I am familiar with that venue as I
live in Chicago. However, that is really more of a private supper club
and theatre than a public venue. They mainly tend to rent it out for
corporate events and private parties, receptions, etc. Although, they
do have public music events some times.

Is this the type of thing you are interested in? If so, I apologize
for misinterpreting your question.

I will look into clubs that have more of a theatre type set-up for
you. I'm sure there are some like that.

What type of building are you operating with? Do you know yet?

Any additional info on your plans would be helpful. Thanks for the
high rating- I hope my original response was of some value to you.

I'll get back to you soon.

Yes, the black orchid is closer to what I'm seeking, but your research
wasn't wasted. This is a unique venue and something along the lines of
the Black Orchid.

Building?...a brand new one believe or not so we're not tied to any
