    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.

    Do the bleeps and bloops of classic arcade games and the familiar sound of pinballs meeting flippers take you back? Does your competitive nature have you fighting for the high score? If so, you won't want to miss our Throwback Thursday Night at Quarter Up Bar Arcade on May 17th! 

    We've got a fun night of networking planned, along with some complimentary appetizers to fuel you up! (Plus, you can try your hand at some of your favorite games!) They've got beers on tap, domestic tallboys and craft beers! They also have specialty drinks with theme-appropriate names such as the Pac-Man and the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. 

    Quarter Up opened its doors in Fall 2017 and has taken the area by storm! They have nearly 40 games including familiar classics Galaga, Ms. Pac-Man, Donkey Kong Jr., Asteroids, Mortal Kombat and Dig Dug to name a few. They also have a nice array of pinball games that include the Addams Family, Twilight Zone and Demolition Man.

    Machines are coin operated and range from .25 to one dollar. Don't worry, they have a change machine on site for those that want to play!
