There are several places to see live jazz in Salt Lake City. Salt Lake may be small but has a surprising amount of live music for a city so tiny and dry
First up: The Bayou. 645 S. State Street Salt Lake City, UT 84111. Having played there many times I can tell you the food is delicious, and one of the few places that’s still serving it late into the night. Live Jazz Music Thursday Friday and Saturday Nights.

Next up is Gracie’s. 326 South West Temple Salt Lake City, UT 84101. Salt Lake City local music lovers remember the glory of the Port ‘O Call, with two stages featuring live music just about every night of the week both downstairs and upstairs. Unfortunately “The Port” had to close its doors due to a government takeover (i.e. the government took over the entire block to expand a courthouse) and Gracie’s is where the managers and much of the equipment from the Port ended up. Gracie’s is considered by many to be the coolest place downtown, with a young crowd and live music many days of the week and weekends. The patio upstairs and outdoor dining downstairs make it a favorite during the summer months. The music there isn’t always jazz, but many jazz bands play at Gracie’s on a regular basis.
