If you like live music, great service, an intimate setting where you can leave the hustle behind and for an evening find what life should be about this is where it’s at.

Blue Jay is a unique listening room Cara is an awesome host! They serve prosecco on tap and the presentation is a beautiful vintage champagne glass.

I saw Guy Davis and Walter Parks play to a capacity room. It is an intimate venue in the best sense of the word, and the sound was very good. I will certainly be watching for future shows.
