The Broad Street Cafe is a full-service restaurant, bar and entertainment hotspot that hosts a wide variety of musical acts Tuesday through Sunday. While there are the occasional jazz/blues bands during the week, the main event for jazz lovers in Durham is the Sunday Night Jazz Series, which features local legends and national touring acts who bring serious talent to an otherwise hit-and-miss music lineup. Be prepared, the music aspect of your evening will definitely not be a subtle addition; it can get very loud at Broad Street, so this may not be the place to engage in a quiet tête-à-tête with your date. However, the food is excellent and generally affordable, and when you add in some excellent (if rather loud) jazz, what more could you want out of life?
