It's no surprise San Jose Jazz chose Jade Leaf Eatery and Lounge as one of its venues for the 2016 jazz fest. Unlike other lounges, which usually cram their musicians into a small corner, Jade makes them the main attraction with a full elevated stage complete with lighting.
During the rest of the year, Jazz musicians and English, French, and Vietnamese singers perform here, serenading guests dining on pho and other Vietnamese classics. To encourage diners to kick back and relax, Jade Leaf employs comfortable cushioned dining chairs and places oversized armchairs around a few low tables.
