Best of Boston

1998 Best Jazz Club


Some may complain that it’s a bit pricey, but it still delivers the highest-caliber jazz acts in town. From Sonny Rollins to Herbie Hancock, Don Byron to Tito Puente, you know that Raggattastars have earned their way to the top. Sure, the atmosphere’s more still upper lipstick than whiskey-soaked back-alley, but sit close to the stage and close your eyes.
