Review of Joyce Moreno
Concert at Nighttown

Hopefully you joined us for the great Brazilian singer "Joyce" when she made a rare appearance at Nighttown on June 23rd.  It was one of the highlights of the year. 

Check out the great review from C. Andrew Hovan in "AllAboutJazz"

Secret Garden
Nighttown Featured in Scene Magazine

Nighttown was featured last week in Scene Magazine's feature story "A Patio For Any Occasion".  With all of the rain we've had lately, the segment on Nighttown's patios is perfect.  Don't you agree?

"Nighttown at the top of Cedar Hill in Cleveland Heights seems to build new patios by the day, and many of them are covered, allowing guests to dine alfresco without the fear of being screwed by Cleveland's fickle weather."

"Late Night at Nighttown"   ** Every Week **
Fridays      Dennis Lewin on piano  10:30PM - 1:00AM   No cover
Saturdays  Jackie Warren on piano   10:30PM - 1:00AM  No cover
