Regattabar

Jazz in Cambridge

Why does Boston have such clean jazz clubs? Regattabar looks just like a conference room in a hotel – in this case the Charles Hotel. Despite the uninspiring ambience, the sound system is ­excellent, they get big enough names (Virginia Rodrigues, Keb Mo) to transcend the mediocre space, and with only 225 seats, you're guaranteed a good view.
