Even people who don’t like jazz like Matt and Phred’s. Rock up on a weeknight for a Charlie Parker pizza, a cheeky beer and anything from house band action to sweet sounds from Brazilian samba trios. With live music six nights a week—“jazz is our first love but we are also enthusiastic about other creative talents,” the owners say—and poetry readings, lit fests, acoustic bands and other musical genres filling the seventh night, you can’t go wrong. Book ahead for weekend gigs, because the place fills fast.
