THE HAROLD AND DOROTHY STEWARD CENTER FOR JAZZ
The Harold and Dorothy Steward Center for Jazz houses several incredible spaces including the Centene Jazz Education Center, Nancy’s Jazz Lounge and most notably, the Ferring Jazz Bistro, the main performance venue. The Ferring Jazz Bistro is a classic jazz club that frequently appears on lists of the best of its type in the country. It’s a low-key, medium-size room where you can literally dine with the performers, the Bistro features multiple night stands by some of the hottest names in instrumental and vocal jazz. Performers rave about the good acoustics; patrons will be pleased with the equally good sightlines.
Jazz at the Bistro tickets for the 7:30pm set also serve as your dinner reservation. Seating begins at 6:00pm for the 7:30pm set. If you plan to dine, we encourage you to arrive between 6-6:30 to allow for more timely service.
9:30pm set ticket holders may arrive early and eat in Nancy’s Jazz Lounge or wait until 2nd set seating begins at 9:00pm. The kitchen remains open until 10:00pm and bar service runs throughout both shows.
We do not have a dress code.
