HOURS & BASIC RULES

A: We typically host trios, quartets and quintets.

A: The club accommodates 85 guests.

A: Gift certificates can be purchased here.

A: Non-flash photography, video and audio is permitted within reason and as long as it doesn’t intrude on the experience of other patrons and the artists’ performances. If you have a special request, e.g., for extended video recording or a photo shoot with artists, please contact ellen@jazzforumarts.org.

A: We sell artists’ CDs, T-shirts, hats, coffee mugs, percussion egg shakers and other merchandise at the box office window. Artists usually autograph CDs for patrons.

A: All ages are welcome at the tables. Bar seating is for 21+.

A:  Those attending the first set may stay for the second set by paying the additional ticket price and an additional $10 minimum per person, depending on seat availability. At the discretion of management and following the first set, management may announce that those who have paid for the first show may stay for the second show, without paying an additional ticket fee.  Patrons from the first set must pay the new minimum per person for the second set.

In either case, if you stay for the second set, you will be asked to close your check, go into the lounge and wait with other patrons while staff reset the tables.  All full-paying patrons for the second show get first choice on seats, and you may be asked to change seats to accommodate them.
