East Side staple The Jazz Estate (2423 N. Murray Ave.) recently finished up its annual monthlong series of The Commercialists playing the music of A Charlie Brown Christmas. The club is now taking January off, and, according to an announcement posted to social media, will return in February with a new cocktail program and “limited live music.”

“The Jazz Estate will be closed through January 2023 so our wonderful bartenders can create a refreshed and expanded cocktail program that is the jewel of Milwaukee’s Eastside,” the announcement reads. “We will be back in February to reveal this incredible menu to you all, set in the same intimate, historic and thoughtfully constructed space that welcomes your perfect date night or gathering with friends.”

The announcement continues:

Limited live music will return at some point in the future, all details to be announced. We can also assure you our Charlie Brown Christmas will be back this December, and it will be better than ever! For now, come and enjoy our atmosphere and distinguished cocktail offerings with no cover charge or advanced ticketing.

For our live music loving guests, we’d like to emphasize other establishments in Milwaukee to support. Caroline’s , Bar Centro, and The Jazz Gallery all have top notch Jazz artists nearly every night. Plus you can find some great cutting edge music at The Cooperage, Sugar Maple, and the Cactus Club. If you are looking for music and food together, Transfer Pizzeria, The 5 O’clock Club, Packing House, and Mason Street Grill all have great live acts as well.

We can’t wait to see you all after January!

In August 2022, The Jazz Estate announced a partnership with longtime fixture Evan Christian. Christian curated the Estate’s music programming throughout the fall, and was said to be in consideration for an ownership role.
