In the Southside on Lamar neighborhood hides a hot and cool club, named after New York City's hip borough. This musical haunt was awarded Best Jazz Club honors in our 2010 edition of Best of Dallas and the 2009 best brunch. Brooklyn Jazz Café is housed in a plain redbrick corner building that during the day is flooded with light through French doors. Aside from house specialties, like spicy Caribbean shrimp and oxtails, customers can enjoy swinging tunes while playing pool or sipping house cocktails in the inner bar that's lined with corrugated metal. Sundays feature the talents of Nadia Washington as well as bottomless Bloody Marys, mimosas, poinsettias and belinis.
