Regattabar Jazz Club. One Bennett Street. Tel: 617-395-7757 [contact: Blue Note New York. A sleek club with two-story windows overlooking Harvard Square, the atmosphere is sophisti-casual, and the sightlines and acoustics are excellent, which is probably why artists like Branford Marsalis and Joshua Redman return again and again. It’s been Boston’s top jazz venue for nearly 20 years, and we have our fingers crossed that Regattabar’s new booking agency, Blue Note … will uphold the standards set by [its previous booking agent.] Top flight talent in a swanky club setting on the edge of Harvard Square? Short of Django Reinhardt coming back from the dead, we can’t think of anything better.]

The Celestial Bar at Castle Street Café opened in December 1997 with Nat King Cole’s baby grand piano gracing the stage (the piano has since been retired) and William Gottlieb’s classic photographs of jazz greats from the 1930s and ’40s lining the walls.
