Best Live Jazz Night

The Dispensary Lounge

Every Friday and Saturday night at The Dispensary, the video-poker machines fall silent and blue notes fill the air. Uli Geissendoerfer oversees this transformation. Originally from Munich, Germany, Geissendoerfer launched the jazz series in 2012. The foundation is his trio, but talented guest musicians and vocalists shuffle on and off the stage. The jazz varies, from classic to the American songbook to Latin, depending on the guests. But one thing’s constant: the quality of the music. The venue is also unique. Swinging double doors lead to a mood-lit carpeted room of wood-frame chairs and couches. Plastic plants hang from the ceiling. It’s reminiscent of your grandmother’s living room, but Grandma never kicked out jams like these. 2451 E. Tropicana Ave., thedispensarylounge.com
