    It all starts with great food and great service. Add on the very cool vibe and excellent live jazz and you've got a winning formula. Highly recommended.

    Go for late night drinks or a fun brunch. Always have a live band - lots of fun! Get the short rib eggs Benedict and French toast at brunch! No questions asked.

    Had the Valentino cocktail, Bao tacos, fall off the bone ribs and fries. Great service & food came out super quick. Loved everything ESPECIALLY RIBS. The glaze on it was so good.

    St. Cloud or the Queen Bee if you like vodka. Their house brew is also excellent! Jazzy atmosphere, great place for a drink and live music

    Great atmosphere and very delicious variety of new American and Italian food. Spring salad and the swordfish were wonderful. Night shift that was on tap was dynamite. Ryan you are a great bartender!

    Stellar cocktails and wonderful entrees with great ambiance and live jazz. If you like bourbon, try the Hi Ho signature cocktail - it's a dream!

    Went for Jazz brunch on a cold Saturday morning. All tables were taken but there was plenty of room at the downstairs bar for our group of 7. Fun & cozy atmosphere. Try the shakshuka!

    Great for dates. On Mondays, the live reggae band is the best! The ambience downstairs is perfect. I'm a sucker for dim lights and funky design aesthetics. The staff are super nice too!

    There aren't enough things to say about the beehive. Can't go wrong with their house honey brew and famous short rib grilled cheese. Squid ink specials are A+ when they have 'em.

    (Best of Boston 2013-DINNER WITH LIVE MUSIC) Improper Bostonian says, "What's special about the Beehive is its level of immersion. Claim a cafe table at the edge of the stage if you want to feel."

    Went for the scene & found myself in Hipster Heaven. Band was outfitted in their thrift shop meets 1950 Havana garb. Even they seemed bored with their music (but ironically so). Grab a PBR & enjoy!

    Eggs shakshuka with sausage. Great polenta, mixed well with spicy tomato and crunchy flatbread. Tomatoes could be slightly less chunky, but delicious! 4.75/5

    Make a reservation as it's difficult to get in for Jazz brunch. Order the shaksuka and try to get one of their flavored butters.

    Very cool place, check the time the band starts and get there a bit earlier to be able to have a quiet dinner and enjoy the music with a cocktail afterwards.

    Great jazz music - try to get a seat farther from the music if you want to talk; also great cocktails!

    The decor reminds me of something out of a Vampire movie, but a good one like "Interview with the Vampire". You might even find a tasty Brad look-a-like to enjoy a drink with. My drink Pimm's cup.
