Nice intimate room. Friendly staff. However, I've played there a few times and there is a cover charge for each band (they go around and ask for another cover charge from everyone to stay and watch the next band) so it's easier to keep an audience if bands communicate beforehand and do a joint cover. Play mostly for tips.

Nice, friendly staff. Pretty small, so even if you pack the place, you won't make a lot of money unless you're a small group. They have a small kit and a baby grand. the piano needs regulation. Half price on drinks. Good espresso.

Very, very small. I like intimate shows too however and Egans is a good place to book with their communicative staff and show options available. Decent food, small on selections however. Book a show and don't expect too much and you will enjoy.
