Opened in 2017 and modeled after Smalls Jazz Club in Greenwich Village, this club set between the Gulch and 8th Ave. S. has an entirely different feeling from Broadway. The stone walls and red mood lighting serve as the perfect backdrop for a Steinway grand piano where musicians sit to offer their smooth, stylish tunes. Rudy’s does have a cover to encourage people to come in and stay awhile, and on weekends, night owls can catch an 11:30pm show. Rudy’s also serves New Orleans–style food.
