Come to Downtown Akron to enjoy plenty of networking and complimentary appetizers at one of Akron’s premier live music venues, BLU Jazz+. Join us in the restaurant for happy hour, networking and appetizers starting at 6pm. Then, if you want to stay for Jackie Waren's performance in the jazz club at 8pm, you can attend with no cover charge!
BLU Jazz+ has a “retro” mid-century modern feel & captures the intimacy of the famous New York City jazz clubs while offering the style and sophistication of a modern venue. Expanding upon the popularity of BLU Jazz+, BLU Plate pays homage to the food, music & culture of places like New Orleans, St. Louis, Kansas City, Memphis, Nashville & more – with an Akron twist.
BLU Jazz+ was named one of the "Best Jazz Venues in the World" by DownBeat Magazine (2016, 2017, 2018).
Parking is available on a first come first serve basis on the street, at the High Street Parking Deck (corner of High Street and Market) and valet is also available.
