39. Cafe 290


Surprise! The best place to hear jazz in metro Atlanta is the ground floor of a two-story office complex in Sandy Springs. Septuagenarians and twenty-somethings, all dressed to the nines, tap their feet in a drop-ceilinged, carpeted space that can withstand the blast of a sixteen-piece big band and amplify a tight quartet. Covers range up to $10 for live acts every night except Tuesday.

Don’t miss Every other Monday is for big band swing. Reserve your table a week in advance.
