The Upstairs Jazz Bar, actually down a few steps from the street, has been hosting live jazz music nightly since 1995. Big names are infrequent, but the groups are more than competent. Sets begin as at 8:30pm, and there are usually three each night, 7 days a week. Food ranges from bar snacks to more substantial meals. It’s more of a mid-aged crowd, but a younger jazz-curious crew has been settling in, too. The cover charge is usually C$5 to C$20.
