Jazz Clubs in Cleveland Park

Select Local Merchants

Five nights a week, the air inside Jo Jo Restaurant and Bar reverberates with live jazz and blues music that filters through a dining room populated by succulent, contemporary American entrees. The Angus-beef drunken skirt steak arrives smothered in the chef's special bourbon glaze and grilled to tongue-pleasing perfection, and the pan-seared jumbo-lump crab cake doubles up on a duo of sauces—roasted-red-pepper beurre blanc and creamy mushroom. Cajun shrimps, wrapped and skewered with strips of bacon, come strewn across a bed of rice pilaf and enrobed in creole mustard sauce. Between bites, diners can tipple a bottle of house wine as nearby musicians tickle the strings of their instruments to soothe souls like a hot-stone massage from a sentient Japanese rock garden.
