Z Bistro has a lounge in the former Trout Lily Café space that has been part of their nicely remodeled and expanded downtown bistro for a couple of years. Z Bistro has hosted Route 66 Short Film nights and other activities, in addition to serving great American food and unique cocktails. Now they are branching out to use their cozy lounge to host a Jazz Trio.
Frank Trompeter has a "lean mean ensemble" that recently performed at a wine shop, the Frank Trompeter Jazz Trio. The trio is built around Trompeter and pianist Chris Miller, adding either drums or acoustic bass for different rooms. For Z Bistro, the "bistro trio" will feature drums!
This is a downtown Arts Walk night, so it will be easy to stop by while downtown, or come for the live jazz and also do some shopping downtown. The lounge has a complete selection of beers, its own tasty martinis and a full bar. Live jazz in bistro setting--Springfield is so where it's at!
