We're having dinner at Union Square Cafe on a Friday
in June. Any recommendations for after dinner
entertainment.

    Blue Water Grill on 16th and Union Square West. I
    LOVE the food but since you are already eating at USC,
    one of my absolute favorites, I recommend that you try
    Blue Water after dinner. They have a jazz club on the
    lower level. You can have drinks and listen to live
    jazz. Great crowd, you can even have dessert if you
    want.

      You could also try Knickerbocker, which isn't too far
      away at University and 9th St. (228-8490) Call ahead
      and reserve; depending on who's playing, it can get
      crowded. I think the music starts after 9:30 or so,
      but you should double-check. Nice piano-bass jazz
      combos here.

      Slightly out of the nabe, but The Jazz Standard at 116 E27 between
      park and lex is a major league club, and they book dependably good bands.

      be sure and reserve, though.
