Weekly food and drink specials are featured as well!

The Subterraneans are pleased to welcome Jeff Jenkins on piano for a two-night stand!

Local favorite Mark Sloniker is back to take his usual Sunday slot behind the piano at Ace Gillett’s. Mark plays all of your favorites and is typically joined by family and friends for his later sets.
As you may have already heard, renovations for Ace Gillett’s are on hold for the time being. Spread the word that we’ll continue featuring your favorite food, cocktails and Live Jazz Wednesday through Sunday nights until further notice. If you haven’t had a chance to see the renovations at the Armstrong, come on down and admire the transformation! Also note that we’re working on plans for our annual New Year’s Eve Bash, so save the date for an evening filled with dancing and celebrating!
As always, Thank You for supporting Live Jazz at Ace Gillett’s – I hope to see you there soon!
