Calling All Jazz Singers

If you're in the mood for some jazz, head on over to The Dresden Restaurant and Lounge in Los Feliz (Los Angeles) on Tuesday nights for open mic night.

On first glance, the outside of The Dresden looks retro and a bit kitsch. Although, once you step through the doors, you feel as if you've stepped into a time machine and landed in old Hollywood.
In the center of the room sits a large piano, bordered by bar seating, accompanied by a bass and a set of drums. Marty and Elayne are the famous jazz couple that have been playing here every night for more than 20 years, and who happily provide the jazz tunes as the average-joes take over the mic for the duration of the evening. But don't be fooled by these every-day-folk...they really know how to belt out a tune!

So if old Hollywood jazz is your thing, be sure to check out The Dresden Lounge (open Monday-Saturday, 9pm-1.15am)
