Dancing, drinks, and dishes served at a lively tempo: this is Jazz, TX. After months of hushed excitement, the music venue will open its doors to the public on Tuesday, August 23. The venue – a unique combination of a jazz lounge and Texas history– is located in the basement of the original Bottling Department at Pearl, and invites visitors to step into another time and place.
Tickets for opening week (Aug. 23-27) cost $50 per person and can be purchased at jazztx.com. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets early to ensure admission.
Expect to hear classic jazz tunes, as well as Texas swing, salsa, blues and Americana by Brent “Doc” Watkins and his band.
“Lying at the crossroads of many cultures, San Antonio has always been a town where various music traditions come together,” stated Jazz, TX owner and musician Doc Watkins. “This rich history sets the scene for a club where jazz meets Texas and for what promises to be a unique experience.”
