Best of Boston

2010 BEST Jazz Club

Regattabar

The tasteful Regattabar may not have the indie cred of the crowded, noisy neighborhood jazz joints around town; it’s in the Charles Hotel, after all. But there’s no beating the club’s serious and seriously varied lineup, which features local talents like Stanley Sagov as well as jazz legends like Kenny Barron. It doesn’t hurt that the comfortable space boasts top-notch mixologists and food that’s as good as you’d expect it to be at the Charles (the menu was developed by chef Peter Davis of Henrietta’s Table).
