Smooth Jazz and Fine Dining – Woody’s



Woody’s is a cool place, in downtown Palm Springs. It is a 50’s diner in front, that serves the best burgers in town.

In back, it’s a cool speakeasy jazz club, the kind you might see in Manhattan. Woody’s is a listening room, which means that people actually listen to the music.

Imagine that. Drinks and food at Woody’s are very reasonable.

So if you’re in Palm Springs, California, come out to Woody’s.  If you’re not in Palm Springs, come on out and make a night or two of it!  Book a room at the Riviera Hotel, right around the corner.  It’s the coolest hotel–it’s got a 60’s vibe, and you feel like you might run into Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin strolling the hallways.

The Slim Man Band is back at Woody’s on Wednesday, April 23rd. It’s gonna be another sell-out, so book a table early. Greg “What The Hail” Vail is playing sax, Patrick “Ever” Ready will be on drums, and Tateng Katindig-The Killa From Manila-will be playing keys. It’s gonna be a blast. Admission is free.

Smooth Jazz And Fine Dining – Plate & Vine


Plate & Vine is dedicated to your & our sustainability…

…which is the reason we carefully source the ingredients we serve. Virtually all of our meat and produce comes from sustainable farms and ranches using the most responsible practices. Most are local and many are organic. We are proud to work with fellow artisans and purveyors throughout Northern California and the Bay Area. Locally-Sourced ingredients make our Regionally-Inspired menu items more flavorful, authentic, healthy, and sustainable.

The thing about freshness is that it’s fleeting. Use an ingredient too soon, or too late, and you don’t capture it at the very pinnacle of its flavor. It is around this very basic concept that we created Plate & Vine, a uniquely California-style restaurant dedicated to using locally-sourced foods in most things we make.

Local foods, you see, aren’t frozen, picked before they’re ripe for shipping or transported thousands of miles. They are, instead, fresh, organic, sustainable and grown in some of the most fertile soil in the world. If the experience of choosing foods from your own garden and preparing them yourself that very day could be turned into a restaurant – Plate & Vine would be that restaurant.

So eat, drink and enjoy the treasures of Contra Costa County and the Greater Bay Area. Because unless you’re from here, odds are you traveled farther than your meal did. Enjoy! Join us on Tuesday evening Dec 31st for a delicious dinner, live entertainment, champagne toast at midnight, and even options to stay overnight! David Correa & Cascada perform at New Year’s Eve dinner.

Smooth Jazz And Fine Dining – JAZZIZ Nightlife


JAZZIZ Nightlife features fine indoor and outdoor dining, elegant lounging, daily live music on state-of-the-art sound stages, as well as outdoor music festivals featuring national recording artists.

Our story begins in 1983, when Michael Fagien, then a medical student at the University of Florida’s Medical School, founded JAZZIZ magazine. Fagien, who was financially assisted by Gatorade inventor Dr. Robert Cade, had long enjoyed listening to and writing about music. He also loved making mix tapes for friends. He’d bring all those interests to the fore with JAZZIZ, which became the first magazine to include a CD—essentially a mix tape for a far wider circle of friends—with every issue. That innovation would soon be adopted by a numerous computer, gaming and music magazines.

Throughout the remainder of the ’80s and into the early ’90s, the JAZZIZ team refined the magazine’s design and editorial approach, forging fruitful relationships with major players both inside and outside the music business. The magazine reached new audiences by sponsoring music festivals and other events, and through partnerships with various non-jazz enterprises. As a result, JAZZIZ grew into the world’s largest-circulation jazz magazine.

Through the years, Fagien has consulted for and embarked on successful ventures with top entertainment companies, from Universal to Time Warner. In 1995, he partnered with renowned jazz guitarist Lee Ritenour, label operator Mark Wexler and PolyGram Records to found the i.e. music. That record label, which produced A Twist of Jobim and other popular and critically lauded albums, was eventually sold to Universal. Among other achievements, in tandem with American Express Publishing and Food & Wine magazine, Fagien went on to launch Great Taste, a line of cookbooks bundled with music CDs.

In the late ’90s, not long before relocating from Gainesville to Boca Raton, Florida, Fagien began working with famed New Orleans restaurateur Dickie Brennan on an idea that would leverage Fagien’s expertise in media and music with Brennan’s expansive knowledge of the food industry. Basically the idea was to launch a JAZZIZ-themed restaurant and live music venue in the birthplace of jazz, New Orleans. Hearing about this concept, entertainment developer Michael Cordish contacted Fagien about transporting his idea to Seminole Paradise, Cordish’s entertainment complex in Hollywood, Florida. JAZZIZ Bistro—subsequently hailed as the “Best Place for Live Music in South Florida” by Boca Raton Magazine—soon opened for business. Eventually Cordish sold Seminole Paradise, a move that led JAZZIZ Bistro and several other tenants to vacate the property.

Since moving to South Florida, Fagien had kept a close eye on Mizner Park. He befriended Charlie Siemon—a staunch supporter of the Boca Raton arts scene—and the two began talking building a jazz club at Mizner. The ideal location became available in 2011. At that point, Fagien, along with his wife Zakiya and twin brother Steven, began assembling a dream team which included a seasoned general manager, talented chefs and restaurant personnel, a venerated booking agent, top-shelf sound engineers, and a plethora of additional skilled and trusted business associates (details of each below). The collective expertise of everyone involved led to the creation of the first JAZZIZ Nightlife.
