Concierge.com's insider take:
We can't say much for the setting—a room that looks like a banquet hall in a chain hotel beside a train yard—but Scullers has the best jazz in Boston, a mix of legends and up-and-comers, with cabaret seating and a modest stage just a few feet from the front tables. You never know who might turn up. One night it could be 1960s soul singer Bettye LaVette; another, singer-songwriter Marta Gómez performing Latin jazz. Let's not forget the cheeky cabaret attractions, either—Charo, anyone? For more jazz, three other good bets are the Regattabar (two seatings per night, closed Sundays and Mondays), Ryles and the classic Wally's at the Roxbury edge of the South End.—updated by Jon Marcus
