A new home for Jazz in Beantown

Filed in Arts & Entertainment, Spotlight by on September 8, 2009 0 Comments

When Bob the Chef’s left the South End, comfortable jazz went with it.  Wally’s nearby offers fun and cramped jazz.  Scullers and the Regattabar offer upscale jazz and Ryles offers hipster jazz.  But what about consistent and comfortable jazz?

bannerWell now, in the same space that housed Bob the Chef’s comes a sexy new style of jazz at The Stork Club.  Looking more like a downtown nightclub, based on its sleek decor, The Stork Club is offering consistent and classy jazz harkening back to the days of guys, dolls and upscale debauchery.  Everything this town needs.

storkOn top of that – The Stork Club menu is offering the same comfort food of Bob the Chef’s but with an elegant twist.  I, for one, could not imagine improving upon crab cakes – as they are a personal favorite.  But after learning about the sweet potato crab cakes created here, I find myself quite pleasantly mistaken.

Other delicacies include herbed truffled fries, blackened catfish sliders, smoked chicken tacos and the ultimate of all comfort foods: macaroni and cheese.

And with bubbles, white and red taking center stage for libations, with classic stork2cocktails also available on call, sipping while taking in a set of swaying tunes is perfectly acceptable, but sans the 2 drink minimum of yesteryear (puritan Massachusetts laws forbade such restrictions).

The club and restaurant has been open since August 11th and is just getting into full swing with its grand opening celebration happening tomorrow on 09.09.09. The spot is opened 7 days a week from 330pm to 2am, with kitchen service from 530pm-1am. And both live jazz and blues sets are served up nightly as well.

Visit the Stork Club at 604 Columbus Ave, near the corner of Mass Ave, in Boston’s South End. For details, call 617.391.0256. Valet and street parking are available nightly.
