WFPK Jazz Live at Lola is a jazz performance series in Butchertown Grocery’s speakeasy-style upstairs lounge. The series takes place every Thursday and offers two sets; 7:30 to 8:30 and again from 9:30 to 10:30. Reservations are available at www.gotolola.com or calling 502-749-6323. No purchase is required to reserve a seat.
Reservations for the 7:30 show will not secure a seat for the second show, so if you would like to stay for both shows, please make a second reservation for the 9:30 show as well. Reservations, while not required, are highly recommended as Lola’s space is intimate with limited seating, so space fills fast!
Lola at Butchertown Grocery is located at 1076 E. Washington St. Admission is free.
The weekly concerts will be curated by 91.9 WFPK jazz hosts and will include a variety of jazz performers, each with their own interpretation of the art form.
- March 16 – Mike Tracy Brazilian Ensemble curated by Danny O’Bryan
- March 23 – Craig Tweddell’s Sextet curated by John LaBarbera
- March 30 – Jamey Aebersold Quartet curated by Dick Sisto
About Butchertown Grocery and Lola
Located at 1076 E. Washington St. in a century old former grocery store, Butchertown Grocery features a bistro restaurant focusing on seasonality, sourcing and technique. Co-owned by chef Bobby Benjamin, My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan and lawyer Jon Salomon, the refined eatery embodies the artsy soulfulness of the surrounding historic area. As one of Southern Living’s Best New Restaurants of 2016 and a USA TODAY Best New Restaurant nominee, diners enjoy refined yet approachable food in a neighborhood atmosphere.
Up Butchertown Grocery’s oxblood red staircase and through rich red velvet curtains, is Lola – a hush, hush watering hole offering cocktails, comfort and the permission to be who you want to be. A year in the making, Lola is the “den” to Butchertown Grocery’s “dining room,” offering an unassuming atmosphere for all to unwind with approachable cocktails, midnight snacks, live music and the occasional surprise.
