Listening to jazz and drinking wine have become some of man's top recreational activities, just after contemplating infinity and napping in the fridge. Let smooth saxophones entertain you with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of drinks at Close Up 2 Jazz. Close Up 2 Jazz is open Wednesdays through Fridays from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and Saturdays from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. This Groupon can be used toward the $10 cover on Friday and Saturday nights.
Close Up 2 Jazz fills brain-boxes with the smooth sounds of live performances by local and nationally recognized jazz musicians. Within the comforts of a contemporary and upscale venue, guests can chat with like-minded lovers of syncopation over a soothing glass of wine ($8) or a cold beer ($4 domestic, $5 imported). Patrons can also whet their whistles with a martini, available in a variety of fruit flavors including mango and pomegranate ($10), and debate about Miles Davis’s best album and John Coltrane’s favorite reed flavor. Organic Groov woos the jazz club on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and the featured bands on Friday and Saturday nights dazzle jazz aficionados with a flurry of swing notes and melodious improvisations. Close Up 2 Jazz also offers VIP memberships (not included in this deal), including exclusive benefits such as free valet parking and dartboards shaped like Kenny G.
Close Up 2 Jazz
Lively jazz tunes bounce off the brick walls, exposed rafters, and blue-tinged décor of Close Up 2 Jazz's South Loop location. Bartenders shake cocktail mixers in syncopation with smooth jazz that flows from a floor-level stage. Up-and-coming artists mix R & B and classical jazz in the loft-style lounge, whose music and ambiance have attracted numerous mentions in the press. Just steps from the LaSalle/Van Buren Brown Line stop, the chic club leaves its doors open from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. on weekdays and 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Saturdays to catch the postwork crowd and recently retired "L" train cars.
