5. Kreepy Tiki Lounge
This Fort Lauderdale tiki bar specializes more in garage and punk rock but does manage to mix in the occasional jazz night with their tropical drinks. The no-cover nights are hosted by Zach Bartholomew and feature an open jam session.
4. 33rd Street Wine Bar
Located in Fort Lauderdale's North Beach Art District, 33rd Street Wine Bar has over 120 wines by the glass to choose from as you sip through the best South Florida has to offer in be-bop, fusion, or vocal jazz. Friday nights in October featured the Anthony Corrado Duo. 3. Arts Garage
The nonprofit multimedia arts venue, nestled in the bottom of a garage, brings theater, visual art, and hip-hop to Delray Beach. But it also finds a way to provide plenty of jazz. November 5 sees the Dirty Bourbon River Show with the Jon Stickley Trio, November 12 has jazz fusion by Jeff Lorber, and November 17 showcases the Latin jazz of Paquito D'Rivera.
2. Blue Jean Blues
This Fort Lauderdale spot offers live music seven nights a week. Though in October jazz was relegated to only Monday nights, with other nights showing off blues and classic-rock cover bands, their musical schedule changes every month. It's smart to keep tabs on their website for when you might hear a great improvisation on a John Coltrane standard.
1. All That Jazz Cafe
Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night from 6:30 to 11 p.m., this Sunrise restaurant mixes jazz with a blend of New Orleans and world cuisines with absolutely no cover charge. Thursday nights are dedicated to New Orleans-style jazz and food. Friday nights are jazz vocals and 1970s pop hits with Argarita and the Hot Mess Band. Saturday nights are classic jazz with the All That Jazz Trio.
