If you’re a fan of jazz, you haven’t enjoyed it to its full potential until you’ve heard it live—or at the very least blaring from top-notch speakers in a club. If you’re from—or even if you’re just visiting—Massachusetts, rest assured you’ll find a jazz club that will make your evening out beyond worthwhile. Here are our favorites.
Featuring jazz greats including Tony Bennett and Winton Marsalis, Sculler’s Jazz Club is likely the best in all of Massachusetts. Check out the club’s monthly calendar to see who’s performing in the weeks to come.
Named one of the top 150 jazz rooms in the world by Downbeat magazine, Chianti Tuscan Restaurant and Jazz Lounge features the perfect mix of food and music. It’s a favorite of those who don’t feel like driving into Boston to hear good jazz.
