Red Cat Jazz Café

Places-Drinks-Red Cat Jazz Cafe interior
Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau

This historic establishment serves up smooth performances almost every night of the week—mostly jazz mixed with folk, R&B and soul artists—while the restaurant and bar also boasts a full menu of Cajun comfort foods, including red beans and rice, fried catfish and gumbo. Although the cuisine may not be anything to write home about, the nightly performances continue to garner praise from Houstonians and tourists alike. 

Even if you plan to dine, a cover charge remains in effect. Come here for the more casual jazz club that's livelier than Cezanne's and offers a Sunday brunch special highlighting chicken and waffles amongst other soul food favorites and standard egg dishes that you can enjoy with great live jazz.
