Porter's Jazz Cafe is actually going to open this time

A month after the grand opening that wasn't, Porter's Jazz Cafe now says it really is ready to host patrons starting today. The split-level space on Main Street, with a cafe on the street level and a jazz club in the basement, takes up 9,000 square feet in the former Gus Blass Building, currently under renovation for mixed uses.

Porter's House Band, which includes jazz pianist Chris Parker and jazz guitarist Michael Bartlett, will kick things off tonight. No national acts have been booked yet, a staffer who answered the phone at the restaurant told me yesterday.

From a release on the club:

Admission to the Jazz Café, housed in the basement, is $10 Sunday-Thursday after 8 pm and $15 Friday-Saturday after 8 pm. Lunch and dinner served daily in the upstairs dining room. Lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; dinner, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The jazz café will offer a lighter fare until closing. Sunday Brunch offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dinner is served from 4 p.m. until closing.
