Admittedly, Monday nights at Amsterdam Bar are where jazz hounds can find the best bop/fusion performances in town, but a single weekly night does not a jazz club make. In that respect, Brooklyn already deserved the nod for best jazz club at their old Bishop Arts location; regulars such as Martha Burks and guests such as Montrose added a certifiable level of funk and fun to the otherwise stale smooth jazz genre, and the ambiance and crowd struck the right balance of sophisticated and loose. But you couldn't turn 5 degrees at the old, tiny shack without spilling a martini on someone in the tight crowd, so the new location's huge floor space (and additional outdoor patio) are a welcome boost to the club's five nights a week of lovely singers and funky musicians. Come for drinks, come for food or come to be seen, but definitely stick around for the show.

The place was too-crowded. I went to celebrate my sisters birthday. We booked a table for the inside but when I got there 15 mins. before time they only gave us a table on the patio. I came for dinner but they only had 1 waitress on duty for the whole patio. We had a party of 20. One of the guest never got her meal. It took the waitress over an hour to even get my check. The gumbo that I ordered to 30 mins to get to me and when I got it it was way-too spicey. Including another's guess shrimp pasta. The atmosphere was good and so was the music but the service made me very upset. I couldn't have a good time at all. Not the best.
