Red Bones Blues Café

Fusion in Kingston

This restaurant, bar and live-music venue has long been a beehive of cultural and culinary activity. Inside, the walls are beguilingly bedecked with photographs of jazz and blues legends. The menu offers Jamaican twists on European tastes (callaloo strudel, anyone?) with good fish, pasta and salads. The 'Nyam & Scram' lunch menu (J$1200) is excellent value.

There are quality live bands throughout the week, including blues, jazz and reggae, showcasing well-chosen local and international talent, as well as regular poetry slams.
