Sometimes a quiet evening of jazz is better than a night in a loud and smoky rock club. Yeah, we know that sounds crazy. But one visit to CHURCHILL GROUNDS, and we were hooked. The elegant, cozy venue is a classy alternative to scuzzy rock venues. It’s an excellent place to take a special date: Have a glass of wine, relax, and let a night of music work its magic (you’ll just need to close the deal). But, first and foremost, it’s a great place to see intimate performances by a variety of jazz greats and up-’n’-comers. Located to the right of the historic Fox Theatre on Peachtree, Churchill Grounds has a stately, affluent vibe, so ditch the sneakers and dress nice for a change, OK? less...

Jazz is a sophisticated, culturally based, stylized means of emotional expression best enjoyed by audiences who pay attention and invest time into developing the knowledge to understand and appreciate it. There is no jazz venue in Atlanta that better captures this relationship than CHURCHILL GROUNDS, where the music comes first - both through the presentation of top national acts and as a proving ground for local performers.

660 Peachtree St. 404-876-3030 http://www.churchillgrounds.com For the uninitiated, the first visit to Churchill Grounds is an eye (and ear) opener: The management and the performers expect (in fact, require) audiences to listen, to pay attention and not to talk during the show. Wonderful! It's a wallet-opener, too, with a $10 weekend cover and a $10 minimum per person, per set. But it's well worth it to see the city's best jazz performers in a setting where they're inspired to play for one another and for the audience. less...

OK, start the antitrust proceedings. In our trendy-funky town, Churchill Grounds is the Microsoft of jazz clubs. If you want to check out straight-ahead jazz, there is no way to overlook this venue. Sure, other "jazz" clubs present non-smooth jazz sporadically, but Churchill offers it straight up, seven nights a week. The local cats even seem eager to take the stage for the normally precarious largesse of "the door" because CG's prime location next to the Fox nearly guarantees a full house. less...

To hear jazz or get jazzed? that seems to be the question. Sambuca has the dubious honor of providing a place for both. Nothing illegal, mind you, but yes indeed ... to see and be seen, be heard but not listen and bop or bebopped. It's a jazz joint for the '90s, expertly supplying the needs of tomorrow'smore...
