Best Jazz Club 


Nighttown has been the anchor of Cleveland's jazz scene since 1965, and it's only grown smoother with age. Acts like Benny Green, Eliane Elias, Kurt Elling, Joe Lovano, and Brad Mehldau have made Nighttown one of Down Beat's 100 Best Jazz Clubs in the world. There's live music four nights a week (or more) year-round, and you can listen from any of its cozy settings: a warm, welcoming bar area, a casual lounge, an intimate private room, an all-weather outdoor area, and a more formal main dining room. No mattter where you sit, you'll hear world-class music and, we predict, feel 10 times cooler than you really are.
