On a recent night at Chandlers, while I devoured Chilean sea bass and succulent sauteed mushroom caps and let the juniper jump of a gin martini wash away the week's headaches, the dulcet tones of local singer Sally Tibbs drifted on the air, giving the whole place a classic Vegas hotel restaurant feel.
Seven nights a week, live jazz music by some of this city's best musicians emanates from Chandlers' lounge. Though the schedule is subject to change, you can catch Kevin Kirk--who also serves as Chandlers' music director--most nights as he tickles the ivories, followed by or accompanying the likes of Tibbs, John Jones, Phil Garonzik, Steve Eaton, Billy Braun, Jon Hyneman, Mike Seifrit, The Sidemen and more.
Music begins between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. and plays on until 10:30 p.m. or 11:30 p.m.--plenty of time to fill your belly while you fill your ears.
