Hidden in the basement of a beautifully restored townhouse, this bar feels like a secret enclave. Low ceilings and stone-and-exposed-brick walls somehow provide superb accoustics for the regularly scheduled live jazz performances, which include the Joel Frahm Trio on Tuesdays and Sunday night’s more mellow Afterglow, featuring local guitarist Peter Mazza. If you’d like something to nibble, a full menu is offered until 3am (4am on weekends) from the adjacent trattoria, La Lanterna di Vittorio.
