Top nightclub recommendations from locals

Lounge
$$
“Great casual bar where they also have a full menu up to a certain hour. Favorite place to get fried pickles. Occasionally there is a jazz band playing. ”

Jazz Club
$$$
“Incredible live music venue. Built in the 1920's, Cliff Bell's saw the roaring 20's and was a part of the burgeoning scene in the Paris of the West. Mahogany detailing and vintage crescent booth seating, this venue laid dormant and was re-opened with much applause later in the century. It is now a great scene for live music and wonderful entertainment.”
