North City Bistro

The North City Bistro and Wine Shop is a small, intimate venue in North City that sells fine wines, small plates for diners, and has a steady and impressive line up of musical talent.

Former owner Larry Schoonmaker once commented that musicians liked to play there and would book at North City by preference because they liked the venue so much.

Current owner Ray Bloom is a musician himself and is bringing in even more acts. There is generally live music from Tuesday to Saturday. Here is the line up for this weekend, from Ray's weekly letter.

Friday, Dina Blade is back in the house, backed by another couple of favorites, Hans Brehmer on Piano and John Anderson on Sax. This is certain to be a fun evening, from 8:30-10:30 for $10 Cover.

Here is a link to Dina's site, where you can take a few listens.

On Saturday Katy Bourne will be in the house, with her unique and energetic style of Jazz Vocals.

Backed by Darin Clendenin on Piano, Geoff Cooke on Bass and Steve Korn on Drums, playing from 8-10ish, for $10 Cover. Take a listen to Katy here.

Please keep in mind that 100% of our cover charge as well as the tips that go into the "Tips for the Musicians" bucket, goes to the musicians. We simply provide a venue where the musicians choose their show times and cover charge. We and our staff are here to feed you, get you something to quench your thirst and make for a comfortable place to hear Amazing music on a regular basis. Please take that into account when you tip your server, as None of the Cover Charge goes to them:)

We hope to see you some night this week. Please call for reservations, if you want to get a seat in the "music room", as we have been getting pretty full houses on the weekends, especially.

Here is a list of some of our upcoming shows and events:
  • Fri Sept 26 - Dina Blade
  • Sat Sept 27 - Katy Bourne
  • Wed Oct 1 - Rescheduled Jazz Jam for Wed Oct 15 (Darin is on tour on the 1st)
  • Thur Oct 2 - Janette West Group
  • Fri Oct 3 - Pearl Django
  • Sat Oct 4 - Nancy Erickson

And please remember, North City Bistro is All Ages All the Time (and we don't charge cover for your kids:)!
