Always a great choice to grab a glass of wine and listen to seasoned jazz locals, amazing guest artists and formidable jazz students perform.

We LOVE the union but sadly I feel like it's gone downhill lately. The bartenders (Antonio, Ryan, Sierra, and Brittany) are awesome and totally willing to help however the older manager is always too quick to kick everyone out. I know there's laws about time...More
