The Mezz offers live music Wednesday thru Saturday and features 4 very different styles of music. Thursday thru Saturday, we offer a dinner show from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. We open the room at 6:00 for cocktails and ask you make reservations no later than 7:15 for the 7:30 show. We do reserve the tables for those dining with us, but leave the seats at the bar open for cocktails. Then at 9:45 our Cocktails Sets begin for those who just want to listen to some incredible music with a cocktail or dessert.
Please join us in our Piano Bar. Manny Houston will sing your requests and steal your heart! He is great fun and can perform anything from Prince to Elton John!
Kat Keturah and her Torch Trio fill the air with romance. This group performs Billie Holiday, Etta James and Nina Simone to name a few. Step back in time and onto the dance floor!
We welcome Charlton Singleton and Contemporary Flow featuring Quiana Parler on vocals. Charlton leads the Charleston Jazz Orchestra and is the resident artist for our own Gaillard Center. Quiana was a contestant on American Idol and her vocals can still be heard on Kelly Clarkson and Clay Aiken CD's. These two old friends formed Contemporary Flow together with some of the best local talent in Charleston. They put their own twist on some of today's most popular music!
Kat joins us with her down & dirty blues group Rising Smoke and the smoke is rising from the heat in the room! This little powerhouse will knock you right out of your seat!
Mezz-Merized Again The Mezz is a recently renovated jazz club which formerly held a popular jazz bar called Mazzane that closed in 2004. The space was renovated by John David Madison in conjunction with Sermet's Downtown to be a space for music enthusiasts and the perfect venue for private events.
With additional restaurant seating on the second floor above Sermet's Downtown, a semi-circular bar and sleek stage teamed with the fine Mediterranean menu of Sermet's Downtown, The Mezz will provide you an experience like none other in Charleston. Dress to impress, or miss the show! Business casual attire kindly requested.
Make a reservation for one of our events here. If a reservation is made for less than 24 hours from now, please call to confirm reservation.
