The great center city Philadelphia club Zanzibar Blue is closing April 28th due it's not being able to renew the lease. This is great loss as this club was the premier location for A list jazz acts doing small venue shows in Philadelphia. I hope they re-open in another location. I've seen lots of great shows there. While the food and drink is pricey, the entertanment was always top rate.

I've been looking to find the better Jazz venues in Philadelphia for this coming school year, when I'll be living very near Center City. I looked up a few that were mentioned in the post above me, and could not find information on the Clef Club, or Chris' Jazz Cafe.

Anyone know if these, or any other good places are close to the city? (anywhere within decent public transit distance, really.)

Thanks very much for the links. Are there any particularly good locals that I should make sure I see? :cool:
