      Ditto if you like jazz.
      If it's rock he's after, eat at Dan Tana's and go to the Troubador.

        Thank you! We love that place... have been there many times. Anything else you can recommend? We are not into Rock too much. Jazz, any Latin

      2. I went to a cabaret-esq type show at The Vermont restaurant. They have a restaurant next door, or you can dine an watch the show. Right now they're running a production with all John Hughes tunes every Saturday. I checked it out with some friends (starts at 9pm I think), ordered many small plates, and great red wine. It was delightful!

        1. Vibrato is quite nice.
