Jazz & Blues
Most Jazz & Blues music (but not all) lends itself to dancing related to West & East Coast Swing, Hustle,
 Bosanova and Cha Cha,  Size of dance floors are always questionable in these clubs as is the dance music.

Attention "Contact" Dancers
Always, Always call about the music before you visit the following locations.

Please let Tony know if the music is continuously non-danceable at any of these clubs.
And more important, let me know if there is or is not a dance floor or space to dance on. Jazz clubs usually have very little or very small dance floors, but are nice to take a dancing date out for an evening of cuddling.
