Jax Bar & Grill Jazz Glendale

Published: 2011-02-10
Jack Sheldon Located on the bottom floor of a 1920s building in the heart of downtown Glendale, JAX Bar & Grill was opened by restaurateur Jeff Williams in 1984. JAX will celebrate a quarter-century as Glendale's premier jazz supper club in early 2011.

In 1985, one year after JAX' opening, Williams placed a stage between the long, narrow dining room and bar, introduced live jazz seven nights a week, and within six months established JAX as one of Southern California's premier jazz supper clubs.

With an emphasis on straight-ahead jazz, JAX has featured many of Southern California's greatest jazz legends and rising new talents for nearly a quarter century—all with a no cover and no minimum policy.

Featured artists include Jack Sheldon, the original lion of the west coast sound, who has performed at JAX every Thursday night for over 10 years.
