Live Jazz, Great Atmosphere, better than adequate service, wonderful ambiance – Many trips from Minneapolis to Kansas City and this is a mandatory stop. Food is better than average, the food, wine and drink prices are comparable to other good music venues and the atmosphere is definitely romantic. There is no dance floor but I asked the owner if we could dance by our table and was told of course you can if the music moves you and it always does. Slow sensual dancing by our table to excellent music has always provided me and my lady a wonderful means to feel the music between courses. The wait staff has always been attentive and professional.
My lady and I have never been disappointed and so long as the experience is what we have come to expect at what we consider to be one of the top 5 locations where we go to hear Jazz when we travel throughout the US we will always include this stop while we are in Kansas City and we make that trip 5-8 times each year.
The walking proximity to Country Club makes for a wonderfully romantic weekend date. A hand in hand evening stroll window shopping, enjoying the street performers, and people watching in the Plaza, Dinner, Dancing and Fine Music at Jardines and desert to end the night from the Cheese Cake Factory before returning to our hotel. It really DOES'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT.
Great jazz club – We had such a great time. The musicians were really in sync and knew their stuff. We will definitely be back.
Great Entertainment with no cover charge! – So having lived in KC for 5 years I decided I should finally check this place out. I fell in love immediately. They have amazing talent, Angela Higgenbothem, Dave Stephens 5, a slew of others. Their drinks are pricey but not overly so for their nearly plaza location and the crowd is always looking to have a good time. I've found it to be a very social environment, though chatting can be difficult when the live music is going but there are almost always friendly faces around. The wait staff is good, seating is fairly prompt even when they're packed which they usually are and there isn't a bad seat in the house I don't think. The food is really good, if expensive, but you can escape there without totally breaking the bank. Jardines seems to offer up a lot of diversity too. They are open to a wide range of people with a wide range of interests. My friends and I from the college up the street like to go there as a hang out for a few drinks and at the same time, I found it a perfectly appropriate place to take my mom for a late late night Mother's Day nightcap. You get everyone from art kids to older couples and everything in between.
I highly highly recommend Jardines for a friday or saturday night out.
Jardine's – A great jazz club with better than average food and the best looking wait staff in KC.
The service is generally good but even if she is a bit slow you won't mind as long as you can look at her.
The place is packed on weekends or whenever Angela Higgenbottom sings. And the room has become a regular spot for the Cavern Club attracting 40-somethings and older who love the music of the Fab 4.
Jazz-tastic!! – If live jazz and romantic dinner is what you're looking for, then Jardine's fits the bill. Wonderful atmosphere and a staff that makes you feel like a regular. The menu isn't huge, but will satisfy everyone with nicely prepared entrees. The wine list is also uncluttered and offers any wine enthusiast some nicely priced selections. If you want to escape to one of lifes neatest little romance spots, then go spend a secluded evening in the warmth of this great little KC jazz spot.
Jardine's Jumps with Jazz – Great supper club for a semi-romantic dinner a deux or with a group. Fantastic varied jazz several nites a week; one of KC's absolute best!
