About O.Henry Jazz Series
Cocktails and Jazz at the O.Henry is so much fun that we asked the amazing Victoria and Neill Clegg to curate an expansion of the O.Henry Jazz scene. On select Saturdays you can enjoy vintage craft cocktails and delightful seasonal tapas (see the menu) along with an eclectic array of jazz artists performing in the varied styles of contemporary jazz. Select Saturdays from 6:30-9:30 PM.
This is NOT the same experience as Thursday Night Cocktails & Jazz with Neill Clegg and Dave Fox. You can still enjoy their talents — along with those of a rotating roster of extraordinary Jazz vocalists — as they focus on the great American Songbook and beyond, Thursday nights from 5:30 – 8:30 PM.
