This place DOES NOT NEED TO BE ON OPEN TABLE! So I reserved a table originally for 15 people and it happened to advertise a special for that time that there would happy hour all night and open mic night karaoke. Let me first start by saying I called this place 3 times in regard to my reservation and there was no answer. One of my guest actually arrived before I did and they had to pay a $5 cover. That was never advertised on the information page or on my reservation. When I arrived I also had to pay a $5 dollar cover charge as did my other guests. There was no happy hour, there was no open mic or karaoke. There was only one bartender. Seating was first come first served and there were no grouped seating.

Wonderful atmosphere.
Our 2nd visit to the club, and we came from Houston.
The band was much better on our first visit.

Informal, unpretentious, old-world ambience. Don't expect glitz - this is a venue for serious jazz, chance to interact intimately with the musicians.

Thank you for the review DelenB. There's always different musicians in the house to perform AND just to hang out with other musicians. Come back and see us soon!

What an amazing time we had for my wife's birthday! The staff of the Balcony Club were very accommodating and made sure we were set for the night. The music was perfect and she even got up with the band and had a Beatles' Birthday jam! Thanks to everyone who made her night special.

I'm so glad you had a good time and I'll pass this message on to the staff. You got a birthday song on stage - that's awesome! Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we hope to see you again soon for the next birthday party :) Whoop!

The Balcony Club with Kenny & the Kasuals always rocks energetically, lots of fun to dance & listen to 60's & 70's favorite songs, while enjoying a small venue with friends.

DavidR thanks for the review and you're so right, Kenny and the Kasuals always rock the house and make Thur and Sat nights so fun! Just for kicks try a Sunday nights for straight jazz. Thanks again DavidR!!
