Federal Bar Mystery Jazz

I went to the Federal Bar for the first time last weekend and it's a great, laid-back venue that I want to visit again. I just discovered they have live jazz on Wednesday, however, they don't say who will be playing except that it will be artists who have worked with big names like Chaka Kahn, Michael Jackson, Heather Headley, Seal, Nikka Costa, Jessica Simpson, Aturo Sandoval, The Dave Mathews Band, Macy Gray, Lee Dewyze, etc. That's where the mystery comes in. So, while I can vouch for the venue, I have no idea what the music will be like. There's no cover and $2 drafts and $5 cocktails so let's take a chance that we might get a great show.

The music is upstairs and look for the meetup signs at one of the tables.

They have a parking lot behind the building, but it might be a pay lot. I’m not sure if they charge during the week. There is street parking available too.

And to be considerate, please only RSVP if you are definitely going to attend. We have had a lot of events where a large number of the yes RSVPs are no shows. You may not be aware of this, but we make an effort to secure enough space at the venues for all attendees to sit and enjoy the show and we also keep an eye out during the event for people who have said they are coming to make sure they find us. This means we waste a lot of time trying to accommodate people who never show up and it takes away from the enjoyment of the event for the entire group. Anything you can do to help make this a smoother process would be appreciated.

Looking forward to the show and hope to see you there.

    Definitely never knew what was going to happen next with the music, but fun to watch all different musicians jumping on the stage to play. It was one big jam fest.

    i'm guessing i can get in as an under-21 because they serve food?

    I agree. This is a nice place. I was in a now-defunct meetup group (LA Bocce) where we ate here after games. Excellent buffalo wings, burgers and beer. Never been upstairs where they have their weekday night shows, though.

      I had the brunch on Sunday which was delicious too. And the upstairs has surprisingly good acoustics.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
